First, the 36-year-old was introduced by the President's wife. "I was reminded of the humanity that shines through the inhumanity of that day. There was a call to defend the values we hold dear," she said. "A courageous group of men and women stepped forward to say, 'Me. I will go.' That includes you, Harry. You live by a simple principle — serve together, recover together. It's a philosophy not limited by the flag you wave."

She continued, "Your brothers and sisters in arms are connected by something so much deeper than the borders that separate us. You've dedicated time, talent and heart to lifting up service members from around the globe."

"It is ultimately the reminder of service, both at home and overseas," he said. "As we know, once served, always serving. The pride on your faces makes me incredibly happy to know how far you guys have come, the dark places you've been to, and where you are now — stronger than ever before, no doubt."

Ultimately, Harry, who served in the Army for 10 years, had nothing but kind words for the veterans. "To see you guys smiling, when I know how much you've been through — it's not just about you and your families," he shared. "You have to remember, you're doing this for your brothers and sisters in arms. And those people who are in a really dark place — you know what it's like, you've been there yourselves, recovered for yourselves, and you're leading them to their own recovery."
