Snowmaggedon? This wounded warrior and his wheelchair can help
A disabled vet in Nebraska has found an awesome way to continue serving his community. After receiving an off-road wheelchair with sweet treads, Justin Anderson fitted the front of his chair with a short snow plow.
He now uses it to clear the sidewalks of his block and help his neighbors.
Anderson lost a leg in the Iraq War and was given the wheelchair by Independence Fund, a non-profit that helps severely wounded warriors.
He also received help from the local community during his surgeries and other medical care.
“The community has supported me immensely with my struggles and tough times as I had a leg amputated and my fight with brain cancer,” he told the local news. “This is my way of giving back.”
The response from the community has been great, with people asking to take photos with him and saying thank you.
“It’s very gratifying. It’s nice to know you’re appreciated,” he says in the video, “But even if I didn’t get any response from anyone – or nobody said Thank You – I’d still do it.”
