    This is starting to happen way to often. Every time they say it's heat exhaustion or illness... maybe they should start screening the honor guards for young people who get way to exited when meeting royalty (or introduce it as training). Anyway, hope is just that and nothing serious.

    A U.S. soldier of the 173rd Airborne Brigade based in Vicenza, Italy, patrols mock hostile terrain during a training exercise at the U.S. Army's Joint Multinational Readiness Center only weeks before the 173rd will deploy to Afghanistan on March 19, 2012 near Hohenfels, Germany. U.S. troops of the 173rd Airborne Brigade based in Vicenza, Italy, met with actors role-playing Afghan village leaders during training exercises. Though the Pentagon plans to possibly pull out two U.S. Army infantry brigades based in Germany in an effort to reduce costs, the U.S. military’s strong presence in Germany will likely continue, both due to the U.S. roll in NATO as well as the support the German bases provide for U.S. overseas military commitments.

    The remains of a U.S. air force F-16 fighter jet are seen on a rice paddy after crashing during a training in Seocheon, about 240 km (150 miles) south of Seoul March 21, 2012. The pilot ejected safely according to local media. About 28,500 U.S. troops are stationed in South Korea and the two countries' troops conduct annual joint military drills until late April.

    Thats exactly what it is. Having commanded a drill team in high school, I saw this all the time. If you don't keep your legs relaxed and hydrate, especially if it is hot out and you are in full dress stuff, I don't care how tough you are, eventually you will eat pavement. When these ceremonies last multiple hours, its almost a given that it will happen to someone. I personally only had it happen once as a freshman and I learned my lesson.

    Members of Germany's elite police unit, the Spezialeinsatzkommando, or SEK, demonstrate an abseil deployment from a helicopter during a media event on March 20, 2012 in Minden, Germany. The SEK is the special response team of Germany's state police force and typically deploys in high-risk situations, such as bank robberies, hostage takings and the arrest of armed and dangerous fugitives.

    It has nothing to do with royalty or any other kind of excitement. It happens when you stand still for a certain time without moving, so your blood isn't circulating well enough and you fainted. I saw that happening to two guys at our ceremonial oath after finishing our basic training. One of them was a company CO (captain). He just fell over like a stone in front of his recruits
