I believe he was in the military for ten years, and did at least one tour in Afghanistan , whether or not he received preferential treatment.
Amazing how people who've never served are the first to belittle the pedigree of those that have ... but as previously stated, I couldn't care less about the story.
He was in the armed services for about ten years, and spent ten weeks and then later twenty weeks in Afghanistan. Both 'tours' were significantly less than an average tour of duty of six to eight months. Was he treated preferentially?
At least one of Harry's medals relates to active service which contrasts with his (alleged) father, who is the holder of nine medals. None relate in any way to active service. Nice uniform though.
The first 'tour' was spent in Helmand. The second was in south Afghanistan.
In the second tour, he had transferred from the pbi to the Army Air Corps, where he trained on Apache attack helis. Everybody in the army has that option. He was awarded AAC wings following qualification, but served as co-pilot.
No Apache aircraft were lost as a result of enemy action in Afghanistan.

JohnV: There are other drugs but I haven't found the side effects with Ramipril to be bad, it seems to just make my throat a bit more sensitive so things that might have just tickled my throat and make me want to clear it now make me cough.

loddon: The cough is the only one I get from ramipril, although the combinatins of drugs I am on has interesting effects.
