Description:

Newly-elected U.S. Rep. Allen West, who rode the wave of anti-government sentiments into office in November, addressed the Forum Club of the Palm Beaches on March 18, 2011.
 
West, a Republican, defeated incumbent U.S. Rep. Ron Klein and represents District 22 encompassing parts of Palm Beach and Broward counties.  He is the second African-American Republican congressman elected since 1876.

Before retiring as Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army, West served as a Field Artillery Officer in several combat zones: Operation Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom and in Afghanistan.  He is the third of four generations of military servicemen in his family.

“I have traded in my camouflage uniform for a suit,” West said.  “But the commitment to protect the people of the United States is still my mission.”

West received his Bachelors degree from the University of Tennessee and Masters degree from Kansas State University, both in political science.  He also holds a Masters of Military Arts and Sciences from the U.S. Army Command and General Staff Officer College in political theory and military operations.

During the same March 18 program, the Forum Club will honor former U.S. Rep. Clay Shaw with its Exemplary Elected Officials Award given to former elected officials who have made outstanding contributions to their community.  Shaw served in Congress, in the same district West now represents, for 25 years.
