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 added a snow blade that he can adjust to different levels and he says it only takes a couple of hours after a typical Omaha snowfall to blaze a trail along the sidewalks to the local elementary school.
The easy-going vet, with a personalized license plate on his pick-up reading “HOPALONG,” brushes aside the praise as easily as his snowplow-wheelchair clears the slush.
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.
