On the last day of 2007, Prince Harry wasn't celebrating New Year's Eve at a wild party or festive royal engagement. Instead, he was serving in a secret location on the front lines in Afghanistan with his fellow British troops.
Yep, you read that right. The young royal, who was just 23 years old at the time, served as a forward air controller in the southern province of Helmand, where he guided airstrikes toward suspected Taliban targets. And as it turns out, the Household Cavalry officer had been serving in Afghanistan since before Christmas 2007.
Now, a throwback photo of Harry in action has resurfaced—and it looks like he's totally nailing it.
