Hippotherapy, charitable organization helps wounded warriors

Buccieri, a soldier with the Madigan Army Medical Center Warrior Transition Battalion, was injured during a deployment to Afghanistan when his unit was ambushed during a patrol. The hippotherapy program is made available to him by a local charitable organization, Heartbeat Serving Wounded Warriors, which supports wounded warriors through emergency assistance, therapy and morale programs.
