Lt. Colonel Oliver North, a decorated Marine and New York Times Bestselling author, stopped by FOX8 Friday morning to talk about his latest book.

Described as an "American hero" by former President Ronald Regan, North is America's advocate for military personnel and their families.oliver2

On Friday, North talked about his book  "American Heroes on The Homefront – The Hearts of Heroes," which profiles some of the soldiers who have given so much for the country throughout the years.

North will be signing copies of the book at noon on Friday at the Costco, 4201 W. Wendover Ave., Greensboro.

North's book presents a no-holds-barred, profile of the dedicated men and women who serve our nation in harm’s way and chronicles what it really means to be a hero.

As only one who has “been there, done that” can do, North follows American “citizen soldiers” from the battlefield to the homefront and finds extraordinary inspiration in their triumph over life-altering adversity.

“This book is a tribute to the brave men and women I have covered in combat,” North explains. “I have the best job in broadcasting. Those who fight America’s wars are my beat. I get to keep company with heroes for a living… My heroes don’t wear sports uniforms – they wear flak jackets, flight suits, and combat boots.

Since America was attacked on Sept. 11, 2001, North and his award-winning FOX News War Stories documentary team have completed more than 50 “embeds” with U.S. and allied military units on various battlefields.
