For Immediate Release:

The Allen West Foundation is honored to announce that it is donating $2000 to the Fisher House Foundation. This donation will go directly to help the Families of Fallen Soldiers that the administration has indicated it will not pay the Death Gratuity benefit too. The Death Gratuity payments to these families of our fallen warriors was deemed as a non-essential need during this “shutdown”.

In a statement via Facebook, former Congressman and retired Lt. Col. Allen West stated: “I don’t have the words to express my outrage. Just learned that part of the Obama administration’s shutdown strategy of inflicting pain on the American people has sunk to an incredible low. It seems our Commander-in-Chief has deemed death gratuity payments to the families of our Fallen Warriors as non-essential. The President deemed FLOTUS “Let’s move.gov” website essential but the families of the four Americans killed this weekend in Afghanistan are not essential. I am disgusted. As thankful and benevolent Americans, let’s raise money for these families. All In.”
