Here is Allen West’s smack down of Patrick Murphy-
“I stand by the actions I took to protect the lives of my men in Iraq in 2003,” Allen West said. “I paid a small fine for breaking rules in an effort to save the lives of my men. I still have my honorable discharge certificate as a Lieutenant Colonel and I voluntarily submitted my retirement paperwork upon redeploying from Iraq. Patrick Murphy has never volunteered to serve this country. If put in that situation, it is obvious Patrick Murphy would risk neither his life nor endanger his career for those he was entrusted to lead.”- Allen West
“What kind of man who has never worn the uniform attacks an honorably discharged combat veteran for protecting the lives of his soldiers? A desperate man and apparently the same kind of man who calls a decorated combat veteran a coward, hides behind his father’s racist attack ads, gets into drunken bar fights, verbally assaults police officers and then uses his family’s connections to get out of trouble.”-West Campaign Manager Tim Edson.
Lance Cpl. Blas Trevino of the 1st Battalion, 5th Marines, clinches his Rosary beads as he is treated by U.S. Army flight medic Sgt. Joe Campbell after being rescued onto a medevac helicopter from the U.S. Army’s Task Force Lift “Dust Off”, Charlie Company 1-214 Aviation Regiment in Afghanistan Saturday, June 11, 2011. Trevino was shot in the stomach outside Sangin, in the Helmand Province of southern Afghanistan, Saturday. The Army’s ‘Dust Off’ crew needed two attempts to get him out, as they were fired upon and took five rounds of bullets into the tail of their aircraft. (AP Photo/Anja Niedringhaus)
