Fox completed a series of broadcast radio shows titled ‘The Domestic Vietnam’ in conjunction with the Military Appreciation Channel (produced by Radioactive Broadcasting) interviewing many Vietnam veterans about their service, their thoughts of the confusing war issues that dominated the era, and a multitude of general related topics that his radio guests wanted to openly, finally express and did. (Currently under discussion is the possibility of reviving the radio show within the functions and goals of the Vietnam Veterans Youth Scholarship Program.)
Fox’s book ‘Softball / Baseball: The Next Level… Work Hard / Play Smart’ highlight 50 years of coaching experience, explaining successful playing and coaching technique as well as novelistic passions of being a grand part of America’s youth and game for so many years. ‘The Next Level’, is simply the best book available on coaching and playing technique and strategies.

Upon quasi-retirement Fox set his writing skills to an iconic account of the war in Vietnam, writing and publishing ‘The Domestic Vietnam’, a 520 page account of America in the 60’s, in Vietnam, from a Marine’s point of view but also from the broader American point of view of friends, families, loved ones, teammates and others at home who lived the confusing 60’s and 70’s war in their own treacherous confusing ways. Fox concludes his analysis of the war in Vietnam with his own unique political analysis.
Fox now continued the ‘domestic’ series of books with the release of ‘The Domestic Guantanamo’, further explaining in that era of the ‘60’s and 70’s it is impractical to separate the war in Vietnam from issues of Cuba and Guantanamo. Fox’s newest book release as part of the scholarship program is ‘The Domestic Panama’, continuing the series of America’s key role in, with and for development and security of other countries.
Fox most recently completed ‘The Domestic Puerto Rico’ also as a new release in the ‘domestic’ series. Fox admits there will probably be only one likely end to the ongoing writing effort.
Look for ‘The Domestic Columbia’ to be released in June 2018.
