One last update today. It seems that Prince Harry, who is 3rd in line for the British throne, is preparing to ship out to Iraq with his unit.
There is one excerpt from the article that I’d like to draw your attention to, in particular. “Harry threatened to quit the army if he was prevented from joining his men on operations.” – from CNN.com.
It seems that there was some thought as to not letting the young Prince deploy with his men to Mesopotamia, to which he apparently responded “Screw you, you’re not sending my men without me.” In so doing and standing by the soldiers under his command, Prince Harry has held up the long tradition of British soldiery with a dignity that should cause his own countrymen to examine their worth as men.
Bravo to you, young man. I pray you serve your country well.
