WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) - Britain's Prince Harry will join cadets training at the U.S. Military Academy as he starts a three-day visit to New York.
Harry, third in line to the British throne, will take part in live-fire drills and watch field exercises at Camp Buckner, a cadet training facility at West Point.
The drills are being held some 40 miles north of New York City in the Hudson Valley, but they may seem familiar to the 25-year-old prince. Harry attended the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst and was commissioned an officer in the British Army.
Harry's three-day visit will highlight ways British and American veterans charities can support wounded soldiers. He'll participate in the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic on Sunday.
