Prince Harry visited with fellow servicemen and women this morning while at the Royal Air Force's Honington base. Dressed in fatigues, Harry checked out equipment, like rifles and night vision systems, and said hello to veterans. The Prince has seen combat action himself, and is poised for a second tour of duty. Prince Harry will return to the front line in Afghanistan later this year with the Army Air Corps. He'll serve as an Apache helicopter pilot, having been trained to fly the choppers during a program in the United States last year. He must first, though, complete a predeployment training course. Harry has received high marks in his work so far, earning the distinction of "best copilot gunner" in his class. Harry's brother, Prince William, is now also serving his country. He's one week into a month-and-a-half-long stay in the Falkland Islands, where he's manning search and rescue helicopters.
