Wales, United Kingdom, May 20, 2009--After a distinguished career that included overseas service, royal welcomes, and parade leadership, this old goat is retiring from the military.

Soldiers with the 1st Battalion of the Royal Welsh Regiment lined up on Tuesday to offer a full military send-off to their aging regimental goat, William Windsor. The eight-and-a-half-year-old lance corporal will spend the rest of his days at Whipsnade Zoo.
