Thank you, Iceflower

The Defence site has more on Frederik's visit: Værsgo

When wounded soldiers are released from Rigshospitalet, they are then transferred to their local regiments or municipalities, if they are no longer able to serve in the army. The municipalities often have very little experience with retraining soldiers. (*)
As such Soldaterlegatet = the Soldiers grant has set up facillities complete with machines in six places all over DK. Here wounded soldiers and veterans can get the necessary training after their stay at the hospital.
One of these facillities has been located Høvelte Barracks, the home of the Royal Lifeguard Regiment, which, being a combat regiment, has suffered considererable casualties for the past twenty years.
Just ten years ago, such facillities let alone the retraining, specifically aimed at soldiers were virtually nonexistant.

Frederik, who served as a volunteer conscript in the Lifeguards, inaugurated the new facillity.

- It is I think very commendable and a very good way of sharing the focus that Frederik deals with the physical rehabillitation of soldiers, while Mary deals with the mental rehabillitation.

(*) Experiences from Rigshospitalet have determined that soldiers are different from other patients. They are usually very fit, very determined and by the presence of other soldiers also very motivated than normal patients. As such soldiers use the machines on a generally higher level and more than normal patients. They also recover much faster than civillian patients.
The machines at the hospitals are after all aimed at the "average" patient, between 15 and 85 who can be superfit or very obese.

I love work, it absolutely fascinates me. I can sit for hours looking at people working.
