Patients at Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital experienced a different kind of therapy Friday morning.

Soldiers from the Kentucky National Guard taught raced kids in army crawls, jumping jacks, and push ups. The visit was part of a four day resiliance training program, and in conjunction with National Military Appreciation Month. Soldiers said they get as much out of the experience as the kids.

"I think the most profound thing for me personally was seeing just how positive everyone is, not just the patients but the staff and the patients are just so positive and upbeat, always have a smile on their faces, always looking for that next little inch to better themselves, and I mean what better message can we give to our soldiers," said Christopher Winburn of the Kentucky National Guard.

Therapists said the kids are more eager to take part in therapy when the soldiers are present
