Today, following the news that the Taliban have taken control of Afghanistan as the United States withdraws troops from the region, Prince Harry issued a joint statement alongside Dominic Reid, the CEO of the Invictus Games, and Lord Allen of Kensington CBE, the chair of the Invictus Games Foundation, encouraging military veterans asking them to “reach out to each other and offer support for one another.”

“What’s happening in Afghanistan resonates across the international Invictus community. Many of the participating nations and competitors in the Invictus Games family are bound by a shared experience of serving in Afghanistan over the past two decades, and for several years, we have competed alongside Invictus Games Team Afghanistan,” reads the statement, which was shared on Twitter.
