Gov. Walker Visits Troops In Kosovo

Friday, September 7th, 2012 at 7:48 am

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was in Kosovo this week to visit Wisconsin Army National Guard soldiers.

According to the governor’s office, Walker left for Kosovo on Tuesday and was expected to return to Wisconsin early this morning. Walker spokeswoman Jocelyn Webster says the governor spent about 30 hours in the country visiting with soldiers from West Bend-based Company F, 2nd Battalion, 238th Aviation Regiment and Detachment 1, Company B, 248th Aviation Support Battalion. The troops spent close to a year in Kosovo supporting a NATO peace-keeping mission.

The units are due to return to Wisconsin next week.

Webster says security concerns prevented releasing any information before he left and while was in Kosovo.
