Bellevue, Neb. – A Nebraska veteran is doing his part to clear snow – despite being in a wheelchair.
Last year, Iraq War veteran Justin Anderson took his off-road wheelchair and added a snow blade.
“I don’t want kids or parents having to go through the snow and possibly trip or hurt themselves,” said Anderson. “I had a half-dozen people stop to take a picture because they hadn’t seen a chair like this before.”
“The chair has on-the-fly tilt so I can adjust the height of the blade as I push snow,” he tells WOWT 6 News.
“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 Anderson.
“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,” said Anderson.
