BELLEVUE, Neb. (WCMH)– Veteran Justin Anderson doesn’t complain when it snows.
“I don’t want kids or parents having to go through the snow and possibly trip or hurt themselves,” Anderson told WOWT. “I had a half-dozen people stop to take a picture because they hadn’t seen a chair like this before.”
Anderson, who is an Iraq War Veteran and lives in Bellevue Nebraska, put a snow blade on his off-road wheelchair last year and now, with every snowfall, he does his part and more.
“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,” he told WOWT 6 News.
But, Anderson said it’s more about his duty than about the recognition.
“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.
