Congressional medal of honor winner Col. Wesley L. Fox, USMC (Ret.), he retired from the Marine Corps in 1993 after forty-three years of distinguished service. In addition to the Medal of Honor, he received two awards of the Legion of Merit, a Bronze Star with Combat V, four awards of the Purple Heart, and numerous commendations. Col. Fox is someone I have the privileged to know personally and he was a strong influence on my oldest son though-out the latter half of his teenage years.
