Prince Harry Visits Veterans At Help For Heroes Recovery Centre!
Prince Harry is all smiles as he makes his way to the Help For Heroes Recovery Centre at Tedworth House on Monday (January 23) in Wiltshire, England.
The 32-year-old royal learned more about the mental health support military veterans are receiving and reminisced about his own military days during a chat with a group of former soldiers, who have been building an Iron Age roundhouse as part of their recovery from conditions like post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
“As you say, once you’ve served, there’s that dark sense of humour,” Prince Harry said while speaking to Mike Day, 34, a former sniper section commander. “A lot of civilians don’t get it and actually it can be frowned upon sometimes, but to individuals like you, and the rest of them, without it you can’t function at all – it’s got to be part of the recovery process.”
Prince Harry also toured part of the centre’s gardens and met other veterans being taught horticulture as part of their recovery programme.
