Prince Harry pays tribute to British military on 'Stand Up for Heroes' appearance

Prince Harry recently made an appearance at the 14th Annual Stand Up for Heroes.

During his interview, The Duke of Sussex paid a tribute to military soldiers. While reminiscing on his 10-year service in the military, the royal confessed British Army "made me who I am today."

"Once we join this team, we are always part of this team. Once we've served, we are always serving, and proudly so," Prince Harry shared in the virtual interview.

"It changed how I viewed sacrifice and service. I was born into a life of duty, but it was during my decade in the army that I committed to a life of service," he said.

The Prince has a special place for military veterans in his heart and tries his best to always check up on families who have sacrificed their sons for a greater cause.

"I wanted to honour the legacy of these men and women who have given up so much – from time with family to birthdays missed and even births missed. Some lost their limbs and others lost their lives," the royal continued on Stand Up for Heroes.

"It's for that reason that I created the Invictus Games – to give injured servicemen and women a platform to excel and reaffirm their values of resilience, of community and strength, which are inherent in each and every one of us."

His time in the military ‘changed his life forever and for the better.’

The interview that was hosted by Jon Stewart also welcomed musicians Bruce Springsteen, Sheryl Crow, and Brad Paisley.
