Born in Lexington, Virginia, Colonel Walters graduated from Virginia Military Institute in 1988, and was commissioned that same year as an officer in the United States Air Force.

On the ground he proved his value as a flight commander, squadron, group and numbered air force executive officer, assistant director of operations, personnel officer, and joint staff branch chief. He proved his leadership mettle as commander of the 348th Recruiting Squadron, and most recently as Deputy Commander of the 19th Air Wing's Mission Support Group at Little Rock Air Force Base, Arkansas.
