War Stories on the Border: The Third Front

During the holiday season, Americans gather with their families to give thanks and remember their blessings. At a time when so many of America's finest men and women remain overseas fighting for the freedom we enjoy today, it is especially important to remember their sacrifices. But too often Americans forget about the sacrifices of those closer to home -- the men and women putting their life on the line to protect our borders.

This Saturday, Nov. 27, Lt. Col. Oliver North, bestselling author of the newly released American Heroes in Special Operations, gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the men and women on America's "Third Front," the Southern Border, in his latest critically-acclaimed "War Stories" installment on Fox News Channel. Since 2006, more than 26,000 people have been killed in Mexico in drug-related violence that regularly spills over to the United States' side of the border. With vicious drug cartels monitoring the passageways into America, it is left up to federal agents, Border Patrol officers and regular Americans to fight back against this rising onslaught.

Lt. Col. North and his "War Stories" team travels into the heart of the conflict -- from California's Pacific coast to the deserts of Arizona and the banks of the Rio Grande in Texas -- where he meets with everyday Americans who say they are under siege in a war that has gone unnoticed. As he talks to these embattled Americans, Lt. Col. North brings the same intimate portrayal of the faces behind the conflict as he did his bestselling book, American Heroes in Special Operations, which chronicles the personal stories of America's fiercest warriors.

Please join Lt. Col. North this Saturday at 9:00PM EST on Fox News, where he will uncover the real people and the real stories from America's "Third Front."
