Allen West's military service was exemplary. His awards and decorations include the Bronze Star, Meritorious Service Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal, Valorous Unit Award, Air Assault Badge, and the Master Parachutist Badge.The incident which ended in his retirement (with full benefits) was a questionable use of interrogation techniques (while serving in Iraq) to uncover a plot to ambush his unit. It should be noted that there were no further ambushes against American forces in his area until he was relieved of his leadership post.
