Disabled Vet Using Wheelchair As Snowplow Is Winter’s Real Hero

The next time you get all worked up about shoveling snow and how brutal winter can be, you may want to think about this guy.

Justin Anderson, who lost a leg while serving in Iraq, has outfitted his wheelchair so that it can plow snow.

Anderson, who lives in Bellevue, Neb., says he put a snow blade on the wheelchair so he can clear snow around town to help make it easier for everyone to get around. It’s his way of thanking people for rallying by his side through all of his troubles:

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.”

Anderson has become something of a celebrity, but he says that’s not what this is about. “It’s very gratifying,” he says. “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.”
