Hollywood star Mark Wahlberg gave soldiers a Christmas present - with a surprise trip to Afghanistan. Wahlberg, 39, met hundreds of American troops during a visit to Camp Leatherneck on December 19. The actor, who once played a US Marine in the movie 'Three Kings', posed for photos with dozens of troops. He also gave the men and women a viewing of his latest film 'The Fighter', in which he stars as boxer Micky Ward. A spokesman for the US Marines said more than 100 soldiers waited in line to meet him.
