The Story Of This Injured Veteran Is Absolutely Bananas

It’s fun to see someone dressed up in costume by the side of the road, but for Matt Birr, a veteran who got shot in the head in Afghanistan, the fun is serious business.

Matt is not able to work or drive because of his injuries, but he doesn’t let it get him down. He has made it his job to make people laugh.

When he is not having bad headaches, he is traveling around his home town of Fridley, Minn., on his donated Segway, entertaining motorists and pedestrians as a six-foot banana, one of about 30 costumes he has collected.

Watch the full video to hear Matt’s inspirational story. To find out how you can help veterans, visit The Veterans Site.
