A Paraplegic Veteran Had the Sweetest Surprise for His Bride on Their Wedding Day
Sergeant Joe Johnson, from Fishers, Indiana, is a veteran who served in Afghanistan and a paraplegic, Fox 59 reported. Recently, he pulled off a beautiful wedding surprise for his new wife, Michelle.
Johnson, 27, arranged to dance with his bride — without the aid of his wheelchair — on their wedding day, and the two shared an emotional moment.
Watch the surprise unfold in the video below:
Johnson was in a motorcycle accident after returning from Afghanistan that resulted in a spinal cord injury and paralysis, according to ABC News. His wife told the outlet that he rode motorcycles for the rush as a result of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from his service. He’d met his future wife just months before the accident.
“Our family and I have been through so much,” Michelle Johnson told ABC. “But we all know that Joey is still the same person, funny and loving guy he was before.”
