COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Britain's Prince Harry is meeting with wounded service members competing in the Paralympic-style Warrior Games in Colorado.

The veteran combat helicopter pilot, wearing brown camouflage and boots, chatted with individual athletes on the United Kingdom team in Colorado Springs on Saturday morning.

He plans to attend the opening ceremonies and watch volleyball. He'll also watch a cycling competition Sunday.

Harry has deployed to Afghanistan twice with the British Army, once as a forward air controller and once as a helicopter co-pilot and gunner.

A spokesman says he's attending the Colorado games because he believes the wounded deserve recognition.

The Warrior Games run through Thursday. About 260 athletes are expected.
