ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — Britain's Prince Harry is paying tribute to America's war dead at Arlington National Cemetery.

The prince walked Friday morning through Arlington's Section 60, the resting place of many who died in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars.

He placed a wreath and note at the grave of one Army soldier, Michael L. Stansbery Jr. The note reads: "To my comrades-in-arms of the United States of America, who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in the cause of freedom. Captain Harry Wales."

The 21-year-old Stansbery died July 30, 2010, while serving in Afghanistan. He was from Mount Juliet, Tenn.

Prince Harry has served twice in Afghanistan, most recently on an attack helicopter.

He left the site to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns, representing all of America's unidentified war dead.
