Prince Harry receives humanitarian award
LONDON (KGO) -- Britain's Prince Harry has been honored for his humanitarian work with wounded war veterans.
"For these selfless people, it is after the guns have fallen silent, the din of battle quieted, that the real fight begins, a fight that may last for the rest of their lives," he said.
Monday night, former Secretary of State Colin Powell presented Harry with the Humanitarian Leadership Award from the Washington-based think tank "The Atlantic Council." Harry has worked with several charities that help re-train and re-educate wounded veterans.
This was the 27-year-old prince's first trip to the U.S. since he took part in Apache helicopter training in California and Arizona last year.
