North attended Ockawamick Central High School in Philmont, New York, where he grew up. He went on to the State University of New York at Brockport for two years after graduating in 1961. He also spent the summer in the Marine Corps Base Quantico in Virginia, where he attended the US Marine Corps Platoon Leaders Class.

North was selected to the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, in 1963. He joined the US Marine Corps as a second lieutenant in 1968 and served as a platoon commander during the Vietnam War, earning the Silver Star Medal, Bronze Star Medal, and two Purple Heart decorations. He returned to Virginia after his experience in Vietnam and became an instructor at the Quantico Basic School. He then returned to Vietnam as a witness in Corporal Randy Herrod’s trial, where he was accused of mass killing Vietnamese civilians.

North was promoted to Captain in 1971 and served as the commanding officer of the US Marine Corps in the Northern Training Area in Okinawa Prefecture, Japan, after which he was assigned to the Marine Corps Headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, where he was later promoted to Major and assigned to the 3rd Battalion and 8th Marine Regiment as an operations officer.

North was appointed deputy-director for political-military affairs of the National Security Council by President Ronald Reagan after graduating from the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island in 1981. He was promoted to lieutenant colonel two years later, and while at NSC, he oversaw a number of operations, including the 1983 Beirut barracks bombing, which resulted in the deaths of around 300 American and French military personnel; the US invasion of Grenada in the Caribbean Islands; and the 1986 Libya bombing. He was involved in the Iran-Contra affair, which entailed selling guns to Iran in exchange for US hostages, with the proceeds going to the Nicaraguan Contra fighters.

North was fired by President Ronald Reagan as a result of the controversy, and he formally resigned his Marine Corps commission in 1988. The following year, he was found guilty of three of the affair’s 12 accusations and received a three-year suspended prison sentence, two years of probation, community service, and a $150,000 fine. However, a Federal judge dismissed all charges against him two years later.

North’s memoir “Under Fire: An American Story” was published in 1991. In the years that followed, he published a number of other books, including “Mission Compromised,” “The Jericho Sanction,” “The Assassins,” “After Jihad,” “Heroes Proved,” “In the Fight Against Radical Islam,” “Counterfeit Lies,” “American Heroes on the Homefront,” and a number of others, all of which contributed significantly to his net worth.

He ran for the United States Senate as a Republican Party candidate in 1994, but was defeated by Democrat Charles Robb. North began conducting a nationally syndicated radio show named “Oliver North Radio Show,” sometimes known as “Common Sense Radio,” the following year. He co-hosted the MSNBC show “Equal Time” in 1999. Since 2001, he has hosted “War Stories with Oliver North,” a Fox News military history show, as well as serving as a regular commenter on “Hannity,” another Fox News show. His fortune has risen dramatically as a result of his work as a host.

North has been in a number of television productions, including “The Jerry Springer Show,” “Wings,” “JAG,” and “Auction Kings,” among others. He also helped write an episode story for the TV show “The Americans.” He voiced himself in one of the game’s levels as a military consultant in the 2012 video game “Call of Duty: Black Ops II.” His fortune has grown as a result of the ventures.

North is married to Betsy Stuart, with whom he has four children, and they have been married since 1967. North is now a member of the National Rifle Association of America’s board of directors, a non-profit organization that advocates for gun rights. In 1990, he formed Freedom Alliance, an organization dedicated to assisting soldiers slain or permanently disabled in the line of duty, as well as those who are currently serving on the front lines and their families.
