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.

Crown Prince Frederik in Norway 6.-8. December with Danish war veterans:

"HRH The Crown Prince has this week been on a training session in Norway with injured war veterans, who in March are to walk nearly
400 kilometers along the east coast of Greenland

-I think the project is really commendable. I have the greatest respect for the nine veterans with their various disabilities challenge our
conception of what is possible. 30 days in East Greenland during the coldest period requires serious preparation. The training trip in
Norway was just a small taste of what to expect, but all men showed great commitment, willpower and high spirits, so I'm sure they
all go great adventure ahead, said the Crown Prince."

Gallery from on the DRF's official Facebook:
https://m.facebook.com/story.php?sto...36903853314870

***

"The veterans have from Tuesday to Thursday this week had a visit from HRH Crown Prince at their training session in Norway.
Together they have for two days made the journey on skis with sledge and backpack. All this took place in the area around Trondheim."
https://scontent-arn2-1.xx.fbcdn.net...1f&oe=58B39D82

"This week the Crown Prince participated in a training ride to Norway together with a number of injured veterans. The trip is the last
step before the veterans draws on a longer Greenland expedition to March."
https://scontent-arn2-1.xx.fbcdn.net...40&oe=58B799C8

"In March 17 veterans, nine of whom are physically or mentally wounded, participate in Greenland Expedition Arctic Challenge,
where they will walk 400 kilometers along the east coast of Greenland at Turski."
https://scontent-arn2-1.xx.fbcdn.net...64&oe=58F410C9

"Veterans in Motion (VIM) is an association of wounded veterans who through extreme activities try to move their limits physically
and mentally. The veterans have different injuries. Among other leg amputations, other serious bodily injuries and PTSD."

Wounded veterans here in DK have for years been actively encouraged to pursue sports on a high level, form basically the day they are out of surgery. With very good results, physically as well as mentally.
As a result we have by now a proportionally high number of elite athletes attending say the para-olympics.
I believe that was a result from the close co-operation between Danish and British troops for many years now - also when it comes to recovering veterans.
But they don't have the same royal advocate in the DRF, as the British have in Harry, who after all is veteran himself.
The nearest is Frederik, who after being a Frogman know firsthand how it is to push yourself way beyond your boundaries.

But nevertheless some veterans have taken to the woods. Where they live for weeks or months...

This is incredible. Excellent for Frederik to participate and highlight the strength of the veterans. I know he has worked in the past with injured veterans and attended events for veterans, for example the Invictus games in London.

CP Frederik is patron of 'Soldaterlegatet' but AFAIK, they have nothing to do with this, or the upcoming 'Arctic Challenge' in Greenland.

This is a project of 'VIM' Veterans in Motion.
Veterans In Motion - Rykker fysisk og psykisk sårede veteraners grænser

which among others has representatives from the Danish elite units (Frogman Corps, Jaeger Corps and Sirius Patrol), things that Frederik is very familiar with, including his Sirius Expedition in Greenland.

'Soldaterlegatet' is one of the sponsors of "Veterans in Motion" and their activities.
Sponsorer - Veterans In Motion
But I don't know if Frederik was there as their patron or because he is a member of a Danish elite unit.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #50, 2016.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

In March seventeen veterans, of whom nine are physical or psycological invalids, will march on skis for 400 KM along the east coast of Greenland. That is in the coldest period of the year - before the thaw sets in. The trip is scheduled to last 30 says.

As such they have been training in the area around Trondheim in Norway for two days and it was here Frederik joined them. He know first-hand how it is to travel in Greenland.

The founder of Veterans in Motion, Rune Oland Tanggaard, said about Frederik: "It gives the lads an important boost of energy that the Crown Prince takes time to be a part of the expedition".
Rune Oland is also the day-to-day leader of the the DIF Soldier Project.

Frederik expressed his admiration and respect and also confidence in the veterans and he is sure they will have a great experience.

I think this news goes here, since it deals with the veterans race last March. Frederik took part in their training experience in Norway.
https://www.b.dk/kultur/kronprins-fr...nyt-tv-program
"Crown Prince Frederik supports war veterans in a new television program
A team of war veterans who cross the Greenlandic sea ice will receive royal support from Crown Prince Frederik."
