Meet Justin Anderson, a veteran of the Iraq war and cancer survivor who turned his specialized off-road wheelchair into a snowplow as a way to give back to his community. From the UPI:
Justin Anderson, an Iraq War veteran living in Bellevue, was given an off-road wheelchair by the Independence Fund charity to help him get around after his leg was amputated, and he decided to use the gift to help others in his community.
“I don’t want kids or parents having to go through the snow and possibly trip or hurt themselves,” Anderson told WOWT-TV. “I had a half-dozen people stop to take a picture because they hadn’t seen a chair like this before.”
Anderson told KMTV in Omaha, Neb. that he did so to “inspire other veterans” who have similar issues:
“I want to help inspire other veterans with mobility issues. There are still things you can do that you thought you might not be able to do after your injury.”
