What a lovely, genuinely compassionate man.  Just heard on TV that Bill Medd is involving himself with veteran's mental health.  He just has to muscle in, he just doesn't get it that he hasn't got 'it' and never will have especially chained to the Medds.

NEVER *despise* correction,for those who correct you ,truly LOVE you .They are willing to displease you and possibly lose your friendship ,rather than see you destroyed. Those who *despise* you ,on the other hand ,will allow you to FAIL...because what do they care ?

Meet Britain's Invictus Games captain - who's competing with a bullet in his chest

As the Invictus Games began in Florida this weekend, one unmistakable figure loomed large over the 110 athletes representing Great Britain: that of 6ft 7in team captain David Wiseman.

The 33 year-old father-of two and former Yorkshire Regiment infantryman is not just captain, competitor and tower of strength for the British contingent of injured service men and women, but one of the architects of the Games themselves - having worked closely with Prince Harry since 2012 to bring his sporting dream to fruition.

Now, after weeks of buzz-building TV and radio appearances alongside his royal ‘boss’, David Cameron and the Obamas, Wiseman is relishing finally getting down to business.

Invictus Games Winner Dances as Prince Harry Gives Her a Medal (and a Kiss!): 'You Were Looking for an Excuse to Dance!' He Says
Invictus Games founder Prince Harry was front and center during the first full day of competition in Orlando on Monday.

The royal surprised winners by giving out the medals – and a kiss each – after the women's time trials at the cycling events.

Bronze medalist Ana Manciaz from Team USA did a little dance when she stepped up to the podium at the Paralympic-style event. And it didn't go unnoticed by the prince.

"Prince Harry said, 'You were looking for an excuse to dance,' '' she told PEOPLE after the ceremony on Monday.

Ready, set, go! Playful Prince Harry fires the starting shot at the 200m sprint on the second day of the Invictus Games in Florida

A playful Prince Harry pulled faces and joked around before firing the starter fun on the second day of the Invictus Games.
The playful royal, 31, turned to the cameras, shrugging his shoulders and giving them a jokey worried glance as he held the gun in his hand.
After stepping on to the podium he raised his arm in the air and pulled the trigger - ensuring he had an earplug in his ear to protect his hearing

Former soldiers at Invictus Games speak of overcoming 'invisible injuries' of war
http://www.itv.com/news/2016-05-10/former-soldiers-at-invictus-games-speak-of-overcoming-invisible-injuries-of-war/

Invictus Games aim to heal the hidden wounds of minds as well as bodies broken by waR
Back in 2012 a few days before the London Olympics started, I bumped into a colleague and excitedly asked when his girlfriend was coming to watch some of the action.

“She hates sport,” he replied, deadpan.

I could feel my hackles rising.

“Well, does she like drama? Human beings pushing their bodies to the limit? Incredible feats of triumph over adversity and the power of the crowd to help elicit greatness? And all this sacrifice, this sweat and effort for glory alone, not a fat pay check or a Ferrari?”

Harry puts his money where his mouth is: Prince loses $20 bet with US veteran on Invictus Games' volleyball final between Team USA and Team GB

    Prince Harry challenged a US veteran to a bet ahead of tonight’s sitting volleyball final
    The Royal was left $20 down after Team USA beat Team GB to victory
    He made the bet sat next to Israel Del Toro, 41, during today's volleyball semi-finals at the Invictus Games in Orlando, Florida
    A spokesman for Kensington Palace said Prince Harry would honor his bet and pay Del Toro $20 'when he sees him tomorrow'
    Del Toro claimed that the prince even offered him a job at Invictus Games
    Meanwhile another serviceman, Sean Gaffney, from the UK, said Prince Harry knew so much about sitting volleyball, he could 'commentate on it'

First American to Take Home Gold Medal Becomes Most Decorated Competitor at Invictus Games

http://abcnews.go.com/US/american-home-gold-medal-decorated-competitor-invictus-games/story?id=39021365

Marine who lost a leg pulling 9/11 victims out of rubble becomes the most decorated competitor at Invictus Games with SEVEN medals - including the 100m and 200m dash

A U.S. Marine who lost her leg after the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon has come back from her loss to claim a stunning seven medals at this year's Invictus Games.
Sarah Rudder's incredible winning streak saw her triumphing in a range of events including rowing, the 200m dash and shot-put.
'It was amazing,' Rudder said Tuesday, the second and final day of the games. 'It shows that just because I'm an amputee doesn't mean I can't go out and put my heart and soul on the track or any event that I do.'

Impressive how he built this from a set of games in a gym to a now international extravaganza involving world leaders, in such a short time.
