ROCKFORD- As veteran Grant Armbruster rolls around the field with his family in  his new action track wheelchair. He can't wait to do all the things he used to  do.

"Oh it's great. It's a lot faster then I normally am. I'm not working  at stabilizing myself as much because the chairs doing it. I'm just getting used  to the controls" says Veteran Grant Armbruster.

John Sullivan, a former  veteran and CEO of Sullivans Foods; invited customers to donates funds for this  chair. Grant served for 13 and half years with the U.S. army. And was wounded in  combat.

"I know it's going to make his life easier. Because I rode that  chair around Rochelle and the parades. I loved it" says John  Sullivan.

Martha Arumbruster says "this is so exciting for us and it's  such a huge blessing to our family. To be able to get out of the house and do  things together again".

It takes Action Track Chair a month to build the  chair. They have to measure the client and fit their needs physically. For Bob  Lindquist of Action Track Chair, changing peoples lives is just another day at  the office.

"All you need to do is look at the smile on his face when he  was riding through the field and playing with the kids. I think he's chopping at  the bit to go play at Rock Cut Sate Park for the afternoon" says Lindquist.
