Prince Harry of the United Kingdom has urged the military veterans to support each other through this time. Harry issued this statement today in the backdrop of fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban. Prince Harry joined the UK troops in Afghanistan twice to fight against the Taliban.

The statement, which was issued jointly by the Duke of Sussex and the CEO of Invictus Games Dominic Reid, urged military vets to support each other through this time, reported People.

Shared on the Invictus Games Foundation’s Twitter account, the statement reads, “What’s happening in Afghanistan resonates across the international Invictus community.” It further talked about the bond shared by the participating nations in the Invictus Games: “a shared experience of serving in Afghanistan over the past two decades.”

“We encourage everybody across the Invictus network — and the wider military community — to reach out to each other and offer support for one another,” the statement concluded.

The Invictus Games were launched by Prince Harry in 2014 in an effort to “harness the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for those who serve their country.”

The Duke served in the British Army for 10 years, serving twice in Afghanistan – once in 2008 and later in 2012.
