Prince Charles, and Camilla joined the congregation at Westminster Abbey for the Commemoration, Celebration and Rededication Service of the 90th Anniversary of Combat Stress today, May 12, 2009.

The Combat Stress organization was founded in 1919 to aid soldiers who fought in World War I. It has since helped more than 100,000 military veterans through clinics and outreach services. Among the conditions that the organization treats are Post Traumatic Stress, depression and anxiety. 

The Prince of Wales is Patron of Combat Stress, after his grandmother The Queen Mother. In his speech, he briefly reviewed the history of the organization and launched “a new appeal to raise twenty million pounds over the next three years”.
