Handicapped-Accessible Vehicle Given To Wounded Soldier


Driving just got a lot easier for a wounded Fort Drum soldier.

Sergeant 1st Class Roy Mitchell, a career counselor at Fort Drum, received a brand new Honda Pilot.

Operation Support Our Troops of Rhode Island provides wounded warriors with handicapped-accessible vans.

Mitchell's vehicle is wheelchair accessible and is spacious enough for him and his family.

"The convenience of being able to use my wheelchair is now going to be available. Previously, it was an inconvenience," Mitchell said.

"We feel very blessed that he'll be able to utilize this and help him sustain the leg that he has left," said Mitchell's wife, Michelle.

Mitchell lost one of his legs after being injured in Afghanistan.

In addition to the vehicle, Operation Support Our Troops also gave Mitchell and his family $500 for gas, a global positioning system and presents for the kids and his wife.
