North grew up in Philmont, New York where he attended Ockawamick Central High Scool. Upon matriculating in 1961, he went on to attend the State University of New York at Brockport for two years. While at college, he also attended the US Marine Corps Platoon Leaders Class during summer, held at the Marine Corps Base Quantico in Virginia.

In 1963 North was appointed to the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. In 1968, he became a second lieutenant in the US Marine Corps, and during the Vietnam War he served as a platoon commander, winning a Silver Star Medal, Bronze Star Medal, and two Purple Heart medals. After his time in Vietnam, he came back to Virginia and became an instructor at the Basic School in Quantico. He later returned to Vietnam as one of the witnesses in the trial of Corporal Randy Herrod, who was accused of the mass killing of Vietnamese civilians. In 1971 North received promotion as Captain and served as the commanding officer of the US Marine Corps in the Northern Training Area in the Okinawa Prefecture, Japan, after which he was based work at the Marine Corps Headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, later being promoted to major and serving as an operations officer in the 3rd Battalion and 8th Marine Regiment.

Upon graduating from the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island in 1981, North was appointed deputy-director for political-military affairs of the National Security Council by President Ronald Reagan. Two years later he was promoted to lieutenant colonel, and led various operations while at NSC, such as the 1983 Beirut barracks bombing case which resulted in the loss of around 300 American and French military personnel; the U.S. invasion of Grenada in the Caribbean Islands as well as the 1986 Bombing of Libya. He was involved in the Iran-Contra affair, the sale of arms to Iran in exchange for US hostages, with the profits being channeled to the Contra guerrillas in Nicaragua.

Following this scandal, North was dismissed by President Reagan, and in 1988 he officially resigned his Marine Corps commission. The following year he was declared guilty on three of 12 charges from the affair and was given a suspended jail sentence of three years, two years probation, ordered to do community service and fined $150,000. However, two years later all charges against him were dismissed by a Federal judge.

In 1991 North published his memoir “Under Fire: An American Story”. During the following years he released 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 many others, which greatly contributed to his net worth.

In 1994 he ran for the United State Senate as the Republican Party candidate, but lost to Democrat candidate Charles Robb. The following year North began hosting a nationally-syndicated radio program called “Oliver North Radio Show” also referred to as “Common Sense Radio”. In 1999 he co-hosted the MSNBC show “Equal Time”. As of 2001, he has been hosting the Fox News military history show called “War Stories with Oliver North” while also serving as a regular commentator on another Fox News show called “Hannity”. His career as a host has greatly improved his wealth.
