Lt. Col. Allen West has been a staunch defender of freedom his entire life.
Whether he was serving in the U.S. Army, in the U.S. Congress, or as an endorser of the Convention of States Project, Col. West never lost sight of what makes our country great.
Yesterday, he took some time to reflect on the true meaning of Memorial Day. It isn't about the sales and the parties and the pool -- it's about honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
To all those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom -- thank you.
