Prince Harry, now a second lieutenant and infantry platoon leader in the Household Cavalry, may be kept from duty in Iraq. He's not happy about it.
“There is no way I am going to put myself through Sandhurst (military academy)and then sit on my arse back home while my boys are out fighting for their country,” he said.
I suspect that Harry didn't need the money for college (if that's how it works in England) so he joined because he wanted to be a warrior and believed in service. In an era where the elite universities in this country try to ban military recruiters, perhaps we can learn a little from the Brits.
