Video: Disabled Veteran Converts Wheelchair into Snow Plow to Help Community
January 26, 2016
A veteran who lost his leg in the Iraq War continues to serve his fellow Americans. Now, when the snow starts falling in Nebraska, Iraq War veteran Justin Anderson turns his off-road wheelchair into a snow plow.
Last year, Anderson put a snow blade on his off-road wheelchair - which has tank treads instead of wheels - and headed out into the snow to clear snow off sidewalks in his community.
The Iraq War veteran says he enjoys clearing the snow - especially along the sidewalks to the local elementary school - so his neighbors and students at the school can get around the neighborhood safely.
He calls the chore “very gratifying,” because it gives him a chance to pay it forward to a community that supported him as a wounded warrior coming home.
Thanks for your continued service to your country Mr. Anderson!
