Oliver North will be speaking at The Wall That Heals Closing Ceremony on the 11th at 1:00 PM.

North served as a platoon commander during the Vietnam War, where during his combat service, he was awarded the Silver Star, Bronze Star Medal with Combat V, and two Purple Heart medals.

At the time of his being awarded the Silver Star, North was a platoon commander leading his Marines in Operation Virginia Ridge. He led a counter-assault against the People’s Army of Vietnam, as his platoon took on heavy machine gun fire and rocket propelled grenades. Throughout the battle, North displayed “courage, dynamic leadership and unwavering dedication to duty in the face of grave personal danger.”
