Prior to the beginning of Congressman Allen West’s monthly townhall meeting in Fort Lauderdale FL, West presented to Vietnam veteran Edward Ayers all of the service medals that he had originally received while serving in Vietnam but then lost. The medals included three purple hearts as well as the Republic of Vietnam Service Medal and the National Defense Service Medal.
