Been reading a lot about Prince Harry demanding to be sent to Iraq with his troops. I admire that dedication and the tradition he upholds.
I just saw a great quote he made to the media.
“There is no way I am going to put myself through Sandhurst and then sit on my arse back home while my boys are out fighting for their country,” he said on his 21st birthday.
Harry’s military service continues a royal family tradition.
His father, Prince Charles, was a pilot with the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy. Harry’s grandfather, Prince Philip, had a distinguished career in the Royal Navy. Prince Andrew served in the Royal Navy as a helicopter pilot and participated in the Falklands campaign with distinction.
