Prince Harry is saying goodbye to the military today after more than a decade of service.
The rugged royal has had a fulfilling career in the Armed Forces, where he participated in two operational tours of duty in Afghanistan, qualified as an Apache Aircraft Commander and even launched the Invictus Games, which are an international, Paralympic-style multi-sport event that us designed to bring awareness and support rehabilitation and recovery for the Wounded Warriors.
He has spent the past few months serving with the Australian Defense Force and even completed a tour of New Zealand where he learned all about the Maori culture and values.
When Harry's decision to leave the Army was announced, General Sir Nicholas Carter said that the prince had "achieved much in his ten years as a soldier. He has been at the forefront throughout his service." Although he is leaving the Armed Forces, he won't be completely separated. Beginning in the fall, Harry will volunteer with the Personnel Recovery Unit of London District, where he will help soldiers with their rehabilitation after being wounded or injured.
