LAS CRUCES, N.M. (KRQE) – The Las Cruces Firefighter’s Union is defending one of their firefighters over a controversial picture.
It shows a Las Cruces firefighter’s wife breastfeeding while wearing his uniform.
The union says the firefighter is facing discipline because the photo uses the department’s brand, and has nothing to do with the breastfeeding.
The fire department has not commented, saying it’s a personnel issue.
The photo surfaced on social media last month.
