He shook hands, signed autographs, and even played soccer with many of the soldiers.
The former England captain said of his visit:
"You can see the faces, you can see obviously they know they are leaving their families, but they're so focused and they've got this look in their eyes that they're just so confident and just ready. That really is an unbelievable sight to see, and you feel it as well. Just yesterday one of the troops was killed, and you feel it and you see the flags at half-mast and you feel the tension there. It really is, like I said, amazing to be around but you feel the love from everybody. It just really is scary work. These guys are the bravest people that I've ever met and it really is, it truly is, an honor to be here."
Nice work, Becks!
