PITTSBURGH, Penn. -- Before his concert in Pittsburgh Friday, Toby Keith gave a retired Marine corporal, who lost both legs in Afghanistan, an all-terrain wheelchair.

In 2010, Brandon Rumbaugh was carrying a fellow Marine to safety when he stepped on an IED.

He's able to walk with prosthetic legs, but he says he wanted an all-terrain wheelchair because it will let him be more active outdoors and play with his six-month-old daughter.

The Independence Fund, a nonprofit that helps wounded veterans, teamed up with Keith to give Rumbaugh the $16,000 wheelchair.

He also got backstage passes and a meet and greet with the country star.

Rumbaugh enjoyed the concert from the side of the stage and joined Keith onstage during his performance of "American Soldier."
