About the Author

Col. Wesley L. Fox, USMC (Ret.), 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. From 1993 until his retirement in 2001, Fox served as deputy commandant of cadets at Virginia Tech. He is the author of Marine Rifleman: Forty-Three Years in the Corps (Brassey's, Inc., 2002). He lives in Blacksburg, Virginia.


"'For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty...' That's how the Medal of Honor citation for Wesley L. Fox begins. Thankfully, the story doesn't end there. In the pages of this primer, a legendary hero acknowledges the fears he has felt and how he overcame them. His inspiring discourse on courage--and why this quality is so crucial to character--makes this book a 'must read' for every American."--Oliver L. North, LtCol USMC (Ret.), Host, War Stories, FOX News Channel--Oliver L. North
"There are few people who qualify as 'experts' on courage and fear. Colonel Wes Fox, the ultimate Marine's Marine, is one of them. He knows of what he writes and he writes beautifully and bluntly about it. Nobody has ever done it better--or likely ever will."--Jim Lehrer, Executive Editor and Anchor, The News Hour with Jim Lehrer and Author of The Phony Marine: A Novel--Jim Lehrer
"This book is a must-read for soldiers currently serving in today's military."--Military Heritage--Military Heritage (04/24/2008)
"More than a mere primer, this may be a lesson for life, and not only for members of the military profession."--Roanoke Times--Roanoke Times (05/08/2008)
