YOUR GOOD NEWS STORY FOR TODAY

Vet on 100% disability; in constant pain; cuts lawn anyway.

Finds gift one day.

Specialist Christopher Garrett was a combat engineer with the U.S. Army’s 10th Mountain Division when he was deployed to Afghanistan, but a one-night mission changed everything.

Independent Journal Review spoke to his wife, Brittany, who explained what happened:

“He was shot through the lower abdomen, and the bullet exited his right butt cheek. He took the bullet while on a night mission in Afghanistan.”
After being treated for his injuries, he received a medical retirement and was classified as 100% disabled. Despite his disability and the pain it caused him, Brittany said that- once or twice a week – Christopher still went out and mowed their lawn, struggling with the push mower.

And then a complete stranger changed their lives. Brittany posted the following photos to her Facebook page:
