Meanwhile, Back At The Alma Mater...

This from today's Army Times:

WEST POINT, N.Y. — Prince Harry showed he knows his way around a rifle as he joined cadets in training at the storied military grounds Friday at the start of his three-day visit to New York.

Harry, third in line to the British throne, arrived by helicopter about 1:30 p.m., uniformed in camouflage. He hopped on the back of a Humvee, swapped his light blue beret for a helmet and headed out for live-fire exercises on the artillery range and field exercises in nearby woods...

Harry attended the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst and is a lieutenant in the British Army. His service in Afghanistan as a battlefield air controller continued until a media leak cut his time short.

I've written before about my time at Sandhurt, and included pictures.

A new book by a recent Sandhurst grad provides an excellent insight into the Sandhurst experience as well as service with the British Army in Bosnia, Iraq, and Afghanistan. See "The Junior Officers' Reading Club" on Amazon.
