A Christian constitutional conservative, LTC West served 22 years in the U.S. Army, where he was deployed to several combat zones and received many honors, including a Bronze Star, three Meritorious Service Medals, three Army Commendation Medals — one with Valor device — and a Valorous Unit Award. In 1993, he was named the U.S. Army ROTC Instructor of the Year. Continuing a lifetime of service to his country, in 2010, LTC West was elected to the United States Congress, representing Florida’s 22nd District. LTC West is the incoming Chair of the Dallas County Republican Party – he’s also the former Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas — and also serves as Executive Director of the American Constitutional Rights Union, Senior Advisor to the Patriot Academy, Board Member for the Second Amendment Institute, and contributing columnist for and CNS News. You may have also seen him on TV, as he’s a regular on Real America’s Voice, the Brian Kilmeade Show, and Victory News, and a frequent speaker for the Young America’s Foundation. He’s also the author of Guardian of the Republic: An American Ronin’s Journey to Family, Faith, and Freedom; Hold Texas, Hold the Nation: Victory or Death; and We Can Overcome: An American Black Conservative Manifesto.

In his spare time, LTC West is an avid distance runner and Master SCUBA diver. He enjoys cheering his beloved Tennessee Volunteers—he’s an inductee into the University of Tennessee Army ROTC Hall of Fame—and spending time with his wife, Dr. Angela Graham-West, a financial adviser, and their two daughters, Aubrey, a Board-certified Physician Assistant, and Austen, a teacher. He is also the proud grandfather of two grandsons, Jaxton and Levi.

“LTC Allen West is a true American hero and committed patriot,” said WATCHTOWER CEO Jason Colosky, himself a former Recon Marine who served throughout Southwest Asia and Southeast Africa. “It is a true honor to have him appear at the WATCHTOWER booth. As a Board of Directors member of the National Rifle Association, Life Member (Benefactor) of the Texas State Rifle Association, and a WATCHTOWER Firearms Board of Advisors, he’s shown an unwavering commitment to our precious Second Amendment. On top of everything else, he’s a real gentleman. We hope you’ll come by and visit with him.”
