MISSOULA – The Montana Highway Patrol is asking people to show support for Trooper Wade Palmer through a new social media campaign as he fights for his life in a Utah hospital.

So here’s how it works — share a photo of yourself on Twitter wearing green and use #BacktheBlueWeartheGreen or #WearGreenforWade.

MHP also asks that you say where you are from when you post.

Trooper Palmer was shot multiple times last week in Evaro and remains in critical condition in a Salt Lake City hospital.
