Harry, who recently made a trip to the City with the Duchess and Sussex, will be returning to the East Coast to participate in the Salute to Freedom Gala, which will be held at the Intrepid Air & Space Museum.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will visit New York to present the inaugural Intrepid Valour Awards at five veterans, military families, and service personnel who are suffering from “the invisible injuries of war.”
Prince Harry will return to the East Coast on November 10 for the Salute to Freedom gala held at the Intrepid Air & Space Museum. He has just been on a visit to the City with the Duchess.
The historic aircraft carrier Intrepid hosts the event. This event is held the day before Armistice Day (UK), also known as Veterans Day.
Harry, who had served a decade in the British Army, was removed from his honorary military roles after Megxit.
He wanted to retain his positions as Captain General of Royal Marines but is determined not to lose his military connections and support them.
Salute to Freedom Gala pays tribute to US soldiers defending America. The awards honour those who have shown courage and perseverance in the face of great dangers or personal struggles.
The museum stated that the Salute to Freedom gala of the Intrepid Museum honours brave men and women who have served in defence and support of the nation.
The 2021 Intrepid Award for Lifetime Achievement will go to Jon Bon Jovi, musician, and humanitarian.
This organization focuses on ending the cycle of poverty, homelessness, and hunger through affordable housing and shelter. It also provides permanent supportive housing for veterans.
In support of Harry’s Invictus Games Foundation, Jon Bon Jovi released Unbroken, a charity song, early in 2020.
Harry, who recently moved to California, was in New York to promote vaccine equity along with Meghan for the weekend. This was their first major public visit since the Royals stepped down.
Susan MarenoffZausner (President of the Intrepid Museum) said that the museum is proud to present the inaugural Intrepid Valour Award to five remarkable individuals who have persevered in extraordinary circumstances and gone above and beyond what was expected.
“It is a core principle of our institution that we are there for our servicemen and women, who are always there.
“We fulfil this commitment by offering meaningful programs that help veterans integrate into civilian life and build community, even addressing mental health.
“We are so grateful for Prince Harry, The Duke Of Sussex, for honouring these heroes and helping us to raise awareness for mental healthcare support for our uniformed men and women.”
