Overview
Intrigued by the mystique and challenge of the Marine Corps, eighteen-year-old Wesley Fox enlisted in the summer of 1950, shortly after the outbreak of the Korean War. He saw action with the First Marine Division and was wounded in 1951. After Korea, Fox advanced steadily in the enlisted ranks, and received an appointment as second lieutenant early in the Vietnam War. He was twice wounded in a vicious battle during Operation Dewey Canyon. "For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty," Fox received the Medal of Honor. Readers interested in U.S. military history, the Marine Corps, and inspiring tales of personal achievement will enjoy reading about this extraordinary career.
