The controversial Lieutenant Colonel signs a War Stories promotional card for a fan in blue ink
Autograph note signed: "Chris -/ Airborne!/ Soldier on!/ Oliver L. North" in blue ink. 5x3. Oliver North (b. 1943) is a former US Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel infamous for his involvement in the 1980's Iran-Contra affair. Coming from a decorated history as soldier during the Vietnam War (which includes a Silver Star, Bronze Star, and two Purple Hearts), North became involved in the arms scandal in 1985 when working as a military aide to the United States National Security Council, and was the one to originally propose that part of the profits from the sold arms would be diverted to the Contras to aid their rebellion against the Sandinista government. However, it was North's destruction of pertinent legal documents that most implicated North, which ultimately led to his conviction of illegal gratuity, obstruction of a congressional inquiry, and destruction of documents. However, his ruling was overturned due to being granted immunity. After being fired from his position, North pursued a career in politics that was unsuccessful, but did write a number of books detailing his life and career and currently hosts his own series, War Stories with Oliver North (2001). Pencil notes on verso in unknown hand. Fine condition.
