There is a profound and unshakable bond between those that have served, regardless of which military branch or even which country, especially if they’re allies.
It’s that unique understanding between warrior’s, “brothers in arms” and even within that oath of allegiance, which draws a distinct difference between the politician taking office who sacrifices little, and the individual entering the military, in that although the words are similar “to protect and defend” only those that wear the uniform will actually make the ultimate sacrifice, for God and country.
It’s within this backdrop that Prince Harry who served within the British Army as an Officer, and served bravely along with American troops in Afghanistan fighting against a barbaric ideology, and although retired from the military, this warrior has pledged to serve yet again, not in the cockpit, but rather as a public advocate and dedicating his life to working with troubled veterans and those wounded in action.
The 31-year-old prince will be taking part in the “Walking With The Wounded Walk of Britain” and acknowledged that “we need to do more” to get rid of the stigma surrounding mental health issues, whether it’s in this country, or the USA, they are the best people on this planet to bring people together, to improve communities. I think it’s something people need to take notice of.”
Through his public advocacy, the prince has drawn attention to the plight of the those that have worn the uniform, his support of “Walking With The Wounded Walk of Britain” encompasses a team of 6-vets who will walk 1,000 miles across the country, the 6-include 2-ex-US Marines, including one woman, and all with different physical and emotional issues.
