MADISON — Gov. Scott Walker on Monday, December 12th outlined his visits to Middle East military bases last week.

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.

Walker says he wore a flak jacket and traveled by helicopter in Afghanistan to avoid roadside bombs. He says he met troops from around the U.S. and thanked them for their service to boost morale.

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin and Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval traveled with Walker.



  • Huh !

    Who pays for him to go globe trotting and what purpose does it serve ????
    If he’s looking for an adrenaline rush why doesn’t he walk around 53206 ?

  • Hell in a Handbasket

    @CFM and HUH. Your ignorance is showing. If you had a clue you would realize the Wisconsin National Guard has service-members currently deployed to those regions. It is a common practice that Governors, both Republican and Democrat visit their service-members during a deployment. Governor Doyle did it, did you complain then or do the service-members just disgust you?
