Allen West: WATCH THIS! Most memorable Super Bowl: The one I never saw


It was Super Bowl XXV, January 27, 1991 between the Buffalo Bills and the New York Giants in Tampa Bay, Florida at the ol’ Sombrero.

I had deployed to the Persian Gulf right after the new year, Captain Allen West of the 4th Battalion, 5th Field Artillery Regiment, 1st Infantry Division — as part of Operation Desert Storm.

What I remember had nothing to do with the game. As we redeployed in May of 1991, as we were approaching Philadelphia, they put on Whitney Houston singing the Star Spangled Banner, our National Anthem, before Super Bowl XXV.

We were minutes from landing back in America, and those 2 minutes and 49 seconds brought tears to every eye. And even today, as I go back and watch Whitney singing, I cry again. It’s just that memorable.
