Prince Harry qualifies as Apache commander

LONDON – Britain’s defense ministry says Prince Harry has qualified to command an Apache attack helicopter – the culmination of his training over the last three years. Harry, known as Capt. Wales in the army, earlier this year completed a 20-week deployment in Afghanistan as a co-pilot gunner on an Apache and since then has flown missions in the U.K. His commanding officer, Lt. Col. Tom de la Rue, called the qualification a “tremendous achievement.”
