“No, I can’t, I can’t accept this.” That’s what Prince Harry said when 24 year old wounded U.S. Marine Kirstie Ennis gave the British royal her dog tags.
“Please, you know what this means to me, I want you to.” she said. They then hugged.
You see, Kirstie joined other wounded warriors in a 1,000 mile trek from Scotland to Buckingham palace, a trip she made with fellow wounded U.S. Marine Andrew Bement and 4 wounded British vets. It was called “Walk With The Wounded.”
Now that the journey is over, Ennis will have her leg amputated stemming from complications from a 2012 helicopter crash.
What an amazing feat! Here is some footage and tweets on the moment below:
