Prince Harry Will Return To New York City This November To Present Intrepid Valor Awards To 5 Service Members, Veterans & Military Families
He'll be back! Prince Harry will return to New York City in November to present the Intrepid Valor Awards to five service members, veterans and military families "living with the invisible wounds of war," HELLO! reported.
"The Intrepid Museum's Salute to Freedom gala recognizes extraordinary leadership and honors the brave men and women who serve in defense of our nation," the statement said.
"We are extremely proud to bestow the inaugural Intrepid Valor Awards to five incredible individuals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty and persevered through extraordinary circumstances," Susan Marenoff-Zausner, president of the Intrepid Museum, added. "It is a core tenet of our institution to be there for our service members and veterans, who are always there for all of us. One of the ways we fulfill this commitment is by offering meaningful programs that help veterans reintegrate into civilian life and build connection and community, including ones that specifically address mental health."
She added, "We are so grateful to Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex for honoring and amplifying the stories of these heroes and helping to raise awareness for mental health support for our men and women in uniform."
According to reports, Bon Jovi will receive the 2021 Intrepid Lifetime Achievement Award.
Harry, who served in the Army for 10 years, frequently makes appearances at events that honor servicemen and women.
Recently, he teamed up with First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, where they honored Warrior Games athletes, their families and caregivers.
Harry, who founded the Invictus Games, is also working on a documentary about the organization.
The 37-year-old just wrapped up a trip to New York City with his wife, Meghan Markle. The two took on meetings, met with political figures and encouraged others to get vaccinated amid the ongoing pandemic.
“Since this pandemic began, we’ve been talking to the experts about how we can do our part. This week, we sat with independent health leaders to further understand how we get closer to vaccine equity and ending this health crisis, but we’re battling more than a virus alone. This is a battle of misinformation, bureaucracy [and] lack of transparency," Harry said.
