The motorized monster, with tank treads instead of wheels, was supposed to be for off-road adventure but Anderson decided last year to turn it into a machine of goodwill.

He calls the chore “very gratifying,” because it gives him a chance to pay it forward to a community that supported him as a wounded warrior coming home.
