Iraq War veteran Justin Anderson transformed his wheelchair into a plow to help his community during snowy weather.
“I don’t want kids or parents having to go through the snow and possibly trip or hurt themselves,” he explained. “I had a half-dozen people stop to take a picture because they hadn’t seen a chair like this before.”
Anderson lost his leg and fought brain cancer. Through these hard times, his neighbors stood by his side.
“The community has supported me immensely with my struggles and tough times as I had a leg amputated and my fight with brain cancer. This is my way of giving back,” said the veteran.
He appreciates the recognition, but insists it is his duty to help the neighborhood.
“It’s very gratifying. It’s nice to know you’re appreciated. But even if I didn’t get any response from anyone – or nobody said Thank You – I’d still do it,” he concluded.
