Walker told reporters he arrived in Kuwait December 6th and visited Ali Al Salem Air Force Base, Camp Buehring and Camp Arifjan.
On December 7th, he traveled to Al Dafra Air Force Base in the United Arab Emirates and Camp Resolute Support in Afghanistan. The next day he visited Bagram Airfield, the largest U.S. base in Afghanistan. His last stop was Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany.
