A disabled military veteran in Nebraska found a unique way to put his bada** treaded wheelchair and help his community – by turning it into a snowplow!

“I don’t want kids or parents having to go through the snow and possibly trip or hurt themselves,” said Justin Anderson. “I had a half-dozen people stop to take a picture because they hadn’t seen a chair like this before.”

The chair was donated by the Independence Fund and Anderson says he has more winter modifications in mind for it.

According to WOWT:

“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.

Every snowfall, Anderson 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,” said Anderson.

Justin Anderson’s make-shift snow plow isn’t about the recognition he says, but more about his duty.

“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.
