It looks like something out of Mad Max, but Justin Anderson’s wheelchair belongs on the streets of Omaha, Nebraska.

The Iraq War vet, who received an off-road wheelchair from the Independence Fund, outfitted his chair with a snowplow last year and has recently been seen clearing snow from the streets of his community.

“I had a half-dozen people stop to take a picture because they hadn’t seen a chair like this before,” Anderson told WOWT 6.

“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. “Even if I didn’t get any response from anyone – or nobody said ‘thank you’ – I’d still do it.”

Anderson says he’s planning a few more modifications to his wheelchair as winter progresses. We – along with the rest of Omaha – can’t wait.
