PHOENIX (AP) -

Gov. Jan Brewer made a trip to military bases in Afghanistan this week as she visited with service members from Arizona.

Details of the trip were kept under wraps as the Republican governor quietly left the state over the weekend.

Brewer says the trip gave her a deeper appreciation of the professionalism and courage of troops.

Before traveling to Afghanistan, Brewer made a stop in Washington. She met with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and visited an Army combat medic from Chandler at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.

Gov. Janet Napolitano made a similar unannounced trip to Iraq and Afghanistan in 2007.
