Prince Harry arrives at U.S. base for live-fire helicopter training

Prince Harry, younger son of the Prince of Wales, has arrived at a U.S. military base in California for the final phase of helicopter gunship training, according to a United Kingdom Ministry of Defense statement Friday.

Capt. Harry Wales, as he's known on the airfield, will begin live-fire training, which is combined with "environmental and judgment training."

The course will be split between Naval Air Facility El Centro and Gila Bend Air Force Auxiliary Air Field in Arizona.

    I saw this on the news yesterday; Prince Harry sure has the devil-may-care persona going.
    He's adorable!

    It's a pleasure to see that they haven't been infected with that stuffiness that seems to plague the older members of the royal family. He and his brother seem like down to earth indviduals.

    Is that Australian speech therapist going along with him?

    This really is a slow news day. Look at the comment I just made. Look at the story I just commented on.

      I feel the same way, RUFFNUTT. Then again, anyone with any knowledge of English history should not be too surprised about Prince Harry's desire to kill as they are a rather nihilistic people to begin with. The history books bear that out!
