WASHINGTON (AP) --Prince Harry is spending most of his week in the U.S. honoring the wounded and the dead of war, a salute that began Thursday at a land-mine exhibition in Congress at the side of one of America's most storied wounded warriors, Sen. John McCain.

 

On Friday, the Prince-soldier visited Arlington National Cemetery and placed a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns. He will visit wounded servicemembers at Walter Reed Medical Center later in the day.

On Thursday, as the prince entered the rotunda of the Russell Senate Office Building near the Capitol, he was greeted by a roar and shouts of "Harry!" from a crowd of about 500 people, nearly all of them women. They eagerly took pictures, but Harry didn't visibly react except to give what appeared to be a polite wave.
