Next Generation's Allen West to Receive 'Heroes of Conscience Award'

Next Generation's Allen West will be honored at a dinner hosted by the American Freedom Alliance on Tuesday night with their "Heroes of Conscience Award."

AFA describes the award as:

[M]en and women who work daily to support the values and ideals which have formed the very cornerstone of our civilization. We are grateful for their courage and tenacity in elevating the study of the classics, promoting democracy and free enterprise and focusing on the elements that guarantee individual liberty. In defense of our freedoms, they have dared to venture beyond the comforts of family, career and personal commitments, taking great risks on a daily basis in order to preserve and elevate these precious gifts to humanity. They are truly worthy recipients of our annual Heroes of Conscience Awards.
