Posted By Brandon Stewart On June 1, 2011 @ 3:30 pm In Security | Comments Disabled

As a former service member, Congressman Allen West (R-FL) brings a valuable perspective to his work on the House Armed Service Committee. That knowledge and passion was on display during his speech yesterday [1] at The Heritage Foundation on the importance of having clear foreign policy objectives and a military prepared to tackle any challenge.

West’s speech marked the conclusion of Heritage’s 2011 Protect America Month [2], designed to “showcase why we must commit to protecting America in an increasingly dangerous world.” After his speech, he sat down for a short “In the Green Room” interview [3] to answer some questions from Heritage.
