MoH Recipient Col Wesley L Fox Passed Today

Marine Corps legend, Colonel Wesley Fox passed today. He went from Pvt-1stSgt before being commissioned a 2ndLt. I'm sure that him, Col Meyers and many others are tipping a few in Valhalla waiting for Chesty to give them their next mission. Rest in Peace sir.

He wrote a great book about his career and lessons learned. Each chapter covered a rank.

Unfortunately that's true. Men like Colonel's Fox, Meyer, Ripley, O'Dell, Kershaw, Coates and Kozeniesky are too few and very far between and rarely put on a star.
