46th PARTNERSHIP DINNER 2017 • OLIVER L. NORTH

April 22, 2017 • 5:30 P.M.

Oliver North Oliver L. North is a combat decorated Marine, #1 NYT best-selling author, small business founder, inventor with multiple U.S. patents, columnist, and the host of War Stories on the Fox News Channel. Yet, he claims his most important accomplishment is to be the husband of one, the father of four and the grandfather of thirteen.

North was born in San Antonio, Texas, graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, and served 22 years as a U.S. Marine. His awards for service in combat include the silver star, the bronze star for valor and two purple hearts for wounds in combat.

Assigned to the National Security Council Staff in the Reagan administration, Lieutenant Colonel North was the United States government’s counter-terrorism coordinator from 1983-1986. He was involved in planning the rescue of 804 medical students on the Island of Grenada and played a major role in the daring capture of the hijackers of the cruise ship Achille Lauro. After assisting with plans for the U.S. raid on Muammar Qaddafi’s terrorist bases in Libya, North was targeted for assassination by Abu Nidal, the infamous terrorist found dead in Baghdad in August, 2002. President Ronald Reagan described him as “an American hero.”

Since 2001, North has been the host of War Stories, the award-winning military documentary series on Fox News Channel. He has also authored twelve books – all of them New York Times bestsellers. His latest book, American Heroes, based on his extensive coverage of U.S. military units engaged in Afghanistan, Iraq and the Philippines was released in May 2008 and is yet another New York Times Best-Selling Book.

North is a life member of the National Rifle Association and serves on the NRA board of directors. He is also the founder of Freedom Alliance, a foundation that provides college scholarships for the sons and daughters of service members killed in action.
