Watch: Wounded Veteran Receives a Life-Changing Gift

Thanks to the local community, a wounded veteran in Orange Beach, Alabama received a life-changing gift for Christmas. There are very few Christmas presents that can actually change a life but the one this Marine veteran received did just that.

Wounded veteran Jason Picaro served three tours of duty in Afghanistan. But it wasn't a combat mission while deployed in Afghanistan where the Marine veteran received his life changing injuries.

Instead, Picaro's life was altered when he was hit by a drunk driver in Alabama. The veteran has undergone 26 surgeries, but he remains paralyzed from the waist down.

Picaro told WKRG that this gift will definitely change his life and allow him to do things he hasn't been able to do - things like taking his kids to the beach or getting back out in the woods to do some hunting.

This is truly a wonderful story of a community - much like our online community here at Hero Giveaways - coming together to help a wounded veteran who served to protect our freedoms and American way of life.

Enjoy this inspirational veterans video as a Marine veteran receives a motorized, all-terrain wheelchair this past Christmas.
