Walters became the newest Assistance Commandant of the Marine Corps. Gen. Walters is a career aviator and Cobra pilot. He relieved Gen. John M. Paxton Jr., who retired at 42 years of service.

He spent nearly four years as the Assistant Commandant, and is the only one to have ever served alongside three commandants. Farewell, Gen. Paxton, and Hail, Gen. Walters.
