Phyllis Lang, a certified occupational therapist assistant with the Madigan Army Medical Center Warrior Transition Battalion, helps Army Sgt. Michael Buccieri stretch during a hippotherapy session at a ranch in Olympia, Wash., April 9, 2013. Buccieri was shot in the back while deployed to Afghanistan in 2011. He is taking part in the Back in the Saddle Warriors program available through a local charitable organization, Heartbeat Serving Wounded Warriors. He and other Soldiers work one-on-one with the occupational therapist and the Heartbeat team to work on his flexibility and core strength while riding on a horse. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt.
