Prince Harry to serve in BiH

LONDON: Prince Harry has decided to be a frontline soldier in the tough Welsh Guards.

His first Army posting would be leading 30 squadies on a tense peacekeeping mission in war-torn Bosnia.

The 21-year-old prince could be shot at from rival ethnic groups during the six-month NATO mission.*

"Harry sees a tough infantry unit as the best way to prove himself. It is about the most dangerous place you can be in the Army," a senior military source was quoted by the Sun, as saying.

But Harry is determined to dump his initial choice for a regiment - the scandal-ridden Household Cavalry.

"I've got hooked on the infantry bug," he recently said. "I do enjoy running down a ditch full of mud, firing bullets," he added.

* actual odds af actually being shot at wouldbe higher in my gulag on a Friday or Saturday night. let's not overdramatize ourselves here!

This is an insult! I've got nothing else to say about it.

Not you posting it, rather it's such big news. He is no different than the "real" soldiers on the ground. I hope he dosen't get anyone hurt.

Yes that would be my concern too! Being a professional is NOT about getting yourself or others hurt unless that is INEVITABLE!
and I stand by my words that at this point, Saturday night in the gulag is more dangerous, if you aren't careful which neighborhood you are in.
