As winter storm Jonas is set to bear down on the eastern seaboard this weekend, with some areas expecting upwards of two feet of snow, all I can say is I wish someone like Iraqi War veteran Justin Anderson was my next door neighbor.
Dude has no qualms about turning his badass wheelchair – which came by way of an awesome initiative called the Independence Program – into an even more badass snow plow, and taking care of, well, pretty much the whole neighborhood.
What a downright honorable thing to do. Aiding the local school in their snow removal efforts, no less.
“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.
And it’s a sure fire way to make all your neighbors love you, that’s for sure.
Bro move, Justin Anderson. Bro move.
