Meeting — April 26, 2016   
LTC Allen West, US Army (Retired)

Maggiano’s North Park—205 North Park Center Dallas TX 75225
I-75 and Northwest Highway, Dallas, TX

Our speaker for our April meeting is a very dynamic speaker, Lt. Col. Allen West, US Army (Retired).

Allen is currently CEO at the Dallas based prestigious (NCPA) National Center for Policy Analysis. This is a Think Tank that was founded in 1983. West took the post because he believes it will be policy, not politics that secures a sound economic future for Americans – with growth, opportunity and returning the promise of the American dream for this generation and those to come.


In 2010 Allen was honored to continue his oath of service to his country when he was elected to the US Congress and represented Florida's 22nd Congressional District in the House 2011 - 2013. As a member of the 112th Congress he served on the Small Business and Armed Services Committees.  In 2012, he  was instrumental in passing the National Defense and Authorization Act.   

He is the third of four generations of military servicemen in his family. During his 22 year career in the United States Army, Lieutenant Colonel West served in several combat zones and received many honors including a Bronze Star, three Meritorious Service Medals, three Army Commendation Medals and a Valorous Unit Award. In 1993 he was named the US Army ROTC Instructor of the Year. His commands were: Field Artillery Fourth Infantry Division. He served in the Persian Gulf war, in Operation Desert Storm, the Iraq War and Operation Iraqi Freedom. He was awarded The Bronze Star, Meritorious Service Medal, Army Commendation Medal and Army achievement medal.

He is a FOX News Contributor and a Senior Fellow at the London Center for Policy Research, and regularly writes for many media outlets. The primary mission of his Allen West Foundation is to educate and inspire the future generation. His organization supports JROTC, Young Marines, and NROTC. Lt. Col. West is a legacy life member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, life member of the Association of the United States Army and life member of the National Rifle Association. He is married to Dr. Angela Graham-West and they have two daughters, Aubrey, a graduate student pursuing her master’s degree and Austen, a college freshman.
