Prince Harry receives humanitarian award

LONDON

"For these selfless people, it is after the guns have fallen silent, the din of battle quieted, that the real fight begins, a fight that may last for the rest of their lives," he said.

Monday night, former Secretary of State Colin Powell presented Harry with the Humanitarian Leadership Award from the Washington-based think tank "The Atlantic Council." Harry has worked with several charities that help re-train and re-educate wounded veterans.

This was the 27-year-old prince's first trip to the U.S. since he took part in Apache helicopter training in California and Arizona last year.
