Despite ladies screaming his name in excitement and admiration, Harry took some serious moment to speak of his two tours of duty in Afghanistan. "I knew I had a responsibility to help all veterans, who had made huge personal sacrifices for their countries, to lead healthy and dignified lives after service," he said.

Harry – who spearheaded the first Invictus Games last year in London – shakes the hands of the athletes, all of who are wounded or recovering servicemen and veterans.

 

After the games, Harry, Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden visited the USO Warrior and Family Center in Fort Belvoir, Virginia, where they met with wounded and recuperating troops. Later, he was seen chatting with service members and looking at their artwork at the USO Center.
