The Allen West Reception, August 2014

What a great privilege we had to honor Allen West, Lt. Col. (ret. U.S. Army) at our complementary reception for Chicago area veterans.


Lt. Col. West, recently a U.S. Congressman from Florida, who served in Operation Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom where he was a Battalion Commander in the Army’s 4th Infantry Division, has served with distinction.


At our reception, Lt. Col. West gave a blistering critique of Obama Administration’s military strategy in the Middle East.


We thank all Chicago veterans who joined us for this great event.
