Trooper Wade Palmer retires from MHP

Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Wade Palmer retired Monday afternoon after an eight-year career.

Trooper Palmer is taking a medical retirement after sustaining multiple gunshot wounds to the face, head, and neck while searching for a suspect in March of 2019. His survival after such critical injuries has been called miraculous.

On Monday, Palmer, accompanied by his wife and children, received a final send-off from friends and coworkers at Patrol headquarters in Helena.
