Harry: 'Take a life to save a life'

Prince Harry's job as an Apache helicopter gunner has required him to kill the enemy.

“Take a life to save a life. That’s what we revolve around, I suppose,” he told reporters.

The Apache’s role is to protect ground troops using rockets, laser-guided missiles, and a 1200-round chain gun.

“If there’s people trying to do bad stuff to our guys,” Harry explained, “then we’ll take them out of the game.”
