Lt. Col. Oliver North (USMC-Ret), political commentator, military historian, Fox News host, one-time senate candidate, and New York Times best-selling author, drew a crowd in Sun City Center on Thursday during a visit to the community’s annual Business Expo to promote and autograph his latest book, Heroes Proved.  North has had several best-selling books over the years including Under Fire, One More Mission, War Stories — Operation Iraqi Freedom, Mission Compromised, The Jericho Sanction, and The Assassins.

More than 100 people lined up to purchase the new book and for autographs.  Col. North also specially autographed books for some of the veterans attending the expo.

He rose to fame during the Iran-Contra controversy in the late 1980s.  Heavily decorated for service in Vietnam, North was the recipient of the Bronze Star, the Silver Star Medal and two Purple Hearts.  In 1981, he was assigned to the National Security Council in Washington, D.C. as deputy-director of military-political affairs.  North spent his final two years of active duty assigned to Marine Corps Headquarters in Washington.
