Tell me this man wouldn’t protect and defend the Constitution of the United States which is in the oath you take when sworn in as President of the United States.

“My commander was Lieutenant Colonel Allen West. He said, ‘I’m going to make sure that you come home to your wife and your newborn baby,’” Delgado recalls.

“Before we went into Iraq,” Delgado says, “he gave me his body armor.” And it was that body armor, he explains, that ended up saving his life.

Delgado says he was shot one night by an AK-47 wielding combatant firing from a passing vehicle.

“If I hadn’t had that body armor, though, I don’t think I’d really be here,” Delgado explains, “because where it hit was where my lung was.”

“Lt. Col. Allen West saved my life.”
