Fort Lauderdale’s First Baptist Church held its annual ‘Patriotic Celebration’ to honor those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. The church invited U.S. Representative Allen West to this year’s event to talk about the sacrifices the men and woman in uniform have made and continue to make as they protect our freedoms abroad. Many of you may be aware of Lt. Colonel Allen West’s own act of heroism and sacrifice when he gave up his body armor to a young soldier who lacked adequate protection during Operation Desert Storm -that particular body armor subsequently saved that soldiers life after he was shot in the chest.

The host of the event cut off Congressman West as he was about to tell the story and surprised him with someone else who could recall the story from his own personal perspective… Great 4th of July video!
