Sure, Prince Harry gets the royal treatment most of the time, but there's no denying that Capt. Harry Wales has a tough job.
The 28-year-old Apache helicopter pilot completed his four-month tour of duty in Afghanistan this week.
In media interviews conducted in Afghanistan (excerpted by USA Today), Harry said he and his fellow soldiers killed Taliban fighters during his deployment.
"To take a life to save a life," he said. "That's what revolve around, I suppose. If there's people trying to do bad stuff to our guys, then we'll take them out of the game."
We're glad that for now Prince William's kid brother is out of harm's way, and we hope the same for all those serving and living in the region as well.
