Jeremy Young was deployed to Afghanistan in 2011 where he fell victim to a blue on green attack.
One of his Afghani counterparts opened fire on him and his comrades.
Young was shot 13 times and suffered severe nerve damage and had to amputate his leg.
Now, he has a new form of transportation.
The Road Warrior Foundation gifted Young with a massive wheelchair that can work in tough terrain.
“I couldn’t believe that was for me. I wanted one of these chairs since I got hurt, and the first time I saw it I was like ‘do you know how cool it would be to own one of those.'” Young explained.

Road Warrior Foundation has just changed this veterans life – Way to go! A great gift of freedom. It would be great if these tracks wheelchairs were available for disabled veterans at National Park hiking trails.
