First Lady Michelle Obama and Prince Harry ‘Joining Forces’ for Invictus Games

In a grand kickoff on Sunday, first lady Michelle Obama was joined by Morgan Freeman, James Blunt, a former captain in the British Army, opera singer Laura Wright and the Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon, to celebrate the arrival of the athletes. Prince Harry assured spectators and fans that the veterans faced “not just physical injuries”, but “every single one of them has confronted tremendous emotional and mental challenges”. In an interview with Norah O’Donnell, Harry recalled a 1993 visit to Walt Disney World with his mother, Diana.

“To those watching at home and suffering mental illness in silence – veteran or civilian – I hope you are inspired to ask for help”. Obama immediately thanked Harry for his work with the Games.

So of course it’s no surprise to learn that Prince Haz is not a boring uncle, so much so, that on the one occasion he was required to be a little more subdued than normal, it anxious his nephew Prince George so much, he felt compelled to comment on it. He said[1], “I’m not putting work before the idea of a family, marriage and all that kind of stuff”. Michelle turned towards Harry and said that you are not quiet to which he replied, “So embarrassing”. “He’s got a pretty good uncle over here”.

The former Army officer is also a devoted uncle to his brother Prince William and sister-in-law Duchess Catherine’s children, two-year-old Prince George and 12-month-old Princess Charlotte, and wishes he’d been able to take them out to the U.S. to watch the Games and meet the Armyrats © military veterans.

Michelle Obama told Harry in a mock-threatening video posted on Twitter[2] that the British better watch out for the USA side. She dragged her husband into it, the president – Dragged him into it.

“We had happy- happy memories”, Harry said. Hey, @KensingtonRoyal! Are you ready for @InvictusOrlando?[3] H Reporter: How did you approach your grandmother? “I’m sure she would be running around causing chaos like I intend to”.

Harry explained that he has spoken to many people[4] with severe PTSD and other varying degrees of depression and anxiety, and they all said the same thing. “But when I showed her the video and I told her she’s like, ‘Right”.

He said: “Yes we do need to do more”. I just spent a little bit of time sitting there, looking at them, taking it all in.

Prince Harry Reveals He Went Through Psychological Testing After Tour of Duty in Afghanistan

Prince Harry revealed on Wednesday, April 27, that he received psychological testing after being deployed to Afghanistan in December 2007.

The British royal had been secretly serving in the British Army for 10 weeks when journalist Matt Drudge revealed the Prince’s location on the Drudge Report. According to The New York Times, the defense ministry immediately had Harry return home for fear that his presence would make the British soldiers serving with him a target. Though his tour of duty was cut short, the royal’s encounters in the war zone still haunt him.

Harry, 31, opened up to Sky News[2] on Wednesday about how he was scarred by the “images [he has] been unfortunate to see” during his deployment while discussing his upcoming Invictus Games, a multisport event that helps bring attention to wounded soldiers and their journeys toward recovery and rehabilitation.

“You know, I described it to someone ages ago as one of those slide shows that go through your mind,” he told the outlet. “If you’ve got a good imagination as well, everything that you see, especially if it’s something that is quite powerful, then that slide is in there. It’s always in there and if you have dark moments in your life, those slides will pop up.”

Harry explained that during his debriefing session in Cyprus, he went through mandatory psychological tests. “The army put you through a day, two-day course on the way back through Cyprus, which is crucial to everybody,” he explained. “There are images I’ve been lucky enough not to see, but there have been images that I’ve been unfortunate to see, nothing like some of these guys, but, yes, there is a percentage of me being able to relate to exactly what they go through.”

This isn’t the first time Harry has opened up about his time serving in the military. The handsome royal told Good Morning America last month that he was “broken” when he was forced to leave the war-torn region. I didn t know what was going to happen to them,” he said of his squad members. “And then suddenly I find myself on a plane that s delayed because a Danish soldier s coffin was being put onto the plane.”

The Invictus Games will kick off in Orlando on May 8.

Morning skate update _ Aaron Rome is in, Stars vow to soldier on …

Daryl Reaugh taunts the hockey gods with his pregame hockey preview here (I mean, why doesn t he just mention a shutout before it s over. Seriously). Video vanguard Cody Eastwood is joined by newcomer Ali Lucia to present the morning skate video here.

The Stars keep dialing up their media presence everyday. It s been a busy day with the Stars, but they are vowing to push aside any distraction before meeting the red hot Minnesota Wild tonight. Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk met with the team before the morning skate, and players and coaches said they are ready to move forward.

We had a meeting this morning and addressed it, and then we got ready for Minnesota. So our focus is on tonight, said Stars coach Glen Gulutzan. The emotion that goes into that game is the same emotion that goes into staying in the eighth spot.

I think it will be a focused emotion. The Stars have moved into eighth in the West at 15-13-3 (33 points) on the strength of a modest two-game winning streak and would continue to like to make hay in this five-game homestand. Minnesota (18-10-2, 38 points) comes in on a five-game winning streak as the hottest team in the NHL and would like to take its first win out of American Airlines Center since 2003 (a stretch of 0-11-5).

The Stars expect to get Aaron Rome back in the lineup after a 13-game injury hiatus for a broken bone in his foot. That means Jordie Benn will be a healthy scratch on defense. Reilly Smith will jump in and take Brenden Morrow s spot.

Ryan Garbutt is out with a hand injury. He s going to be in the lineup tonight, Gulutzan said of Rome. He had a week with our conditioning guys and a couple of days with (assistant coach) Paul (Jerrard), so he s ready to go.

His foot was cleared Friday, and he s had just a couple of days to get ready. Rome s addition could be a real help in settling the Stars third pair. They have alternated in recent weeks and struggled.

He s a veteran guy, said Gulutzan. The young guys have had a really good start, because they ve been playing in the American Hockey League, but now that we re getting into 20, 30 games, you can see the (veteran) guys are picking up their stride and it s becoming a different league. It s good to have Romer here with that experience, just a big, strong body with experience, and that s comforting to us.

The lines should look like this: Eric Nystrom-Jamie Benn-Jaromir Jagr Ray Whitney-Derek Roy-Loui Eriksson Reilly Smith-Cody Eakin-Erik Cole Antoine Roussel-Vernon Fiddler-Tomas Vincour Brenden Dillon-Stephane Robidas Alex Goilgoski-Trevor Daley Aaron Rome-Philip Larsen Kari Lehtonen will start in net.

Minnesota s lineup should look something like this: WILD Zach Parise Mikku Koivu Charlie Coyle Pierre-Marc Bouchard Matt Cullen Devin Setoguchi Dany Heatley Kyle Brodziak Cal Clutterbuck Mike Rupp Zenon Kenopka Torrey Mitchell Ryan Suter Jonas Brodin Justin Falk Tom Gilbert Clayton Stoner Jared Spurgeon Niklas Backstrom .
