Soldier Credits Allen West With Saving His Life

My commander was Lt. Col. Allen West….‘I’m going to make sure you come home to your wife and your newborn baby.’ Before we went into Iraq, he gave me his body armor. We were driving with night vision goggles. Well, this car came flying by and this AK-47 just starts firing. And I got shot.

If I hadn’t had that body armor though, I don’t think I’d really be here because where it hit is where my lung was. Lt. Colonel Allen West saved my life. It was just the greatest feeling in the world to hold my son for the first time. Col. West gave me his body armor. Because of that, I’m here today.”
