This reporter ran into heroic Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Wade Palmer and his wife Lindsay just after the Grizzly football game at Washington Grizzly Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Palmer, who was gravely wounded by multiple gunshot wounds in March of 2019, spent months in a Salt Lake City Hospital before returning home to a hero’s welcome in May of 2019.

Palmer gave this reporter a ‘thumbs up’ for a Griz win.

We all wish now retired Trooper Palmer, his wife and two children exceptional health and happiness.

But just like fake blood in a carpet, every bit of Halloween’s history left an impression we can see traces of today.
