Young patients uplifted by storm troopers at University of Kansas Hospital

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — In a galaxy not so far, far away, children at the University of Kansas Hospital spotted some special visitors Thursday afternoon. Storm Troopers, a.k.a. Members of the 70th Explorers Garrison, stormed the hospital to cheer up patients. While Chewbacca stayed home, the character made for lasting memories in the young patients’ eyes.

FOX 4 photojournalist Jon Haiduk was on hand for the fun seen in the above video.
