Going Home

Cpl.  Drake, Tpr. Perez, & Tpr. Coggins accompany Trooper McElderry and his wife Celeste, home from the hospital.Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Brandon McElderry, after experiencing some complications with a gun shot wound received in the line of duty, which required another stay at a local hospital, has been released again and is on the road to a complete recovery. Tampa District personnel stayed with Trooper McElderry and his wife Celeste around the clock during his stay at Tampa General Hospital.

Although they both appreciated all of the attention and medical care, both were happy to return home so that Trooper McElderry could begin recuperating in the comfort of his Hillsborough County home. Nobody is looking forward to Trooper McElderry getting back to work more than he is, with the possible exception of his wife, but FHP will be glad to see him back on duty in the near future!
