Letter: Patrick Murphy chose wrong person, Allen West, to call a coward

The vast majority of us have never had to risk our lives on the battlefield, never had to face death, never had to take enemy fire. And that certainly goes for Patrick Murphy, who saw fit to call Allen West a “coward” for moving north to our Congressional District 18. (Never mind the fact that Murphy followed West rather than face Lois Frankel in a primary race in District 22).

Does Murphy realize how stupid that sounds? West served in the United States Army for 22 years. He was awarded a Bronze Star, three Meritorious Service Medals, three Army Commendation Medals (one with valor), and a Valorous Unit Award.

While serving in Iraq, he gave up his personal body armor to a fellow soldier, which probably is the reason that soldier is alive today.

Murphy tries to characterize himself as the sensible, thoughtful candidate. Sadly, his actions say differently.
