About C. Douglas Sterner
Doug Sterner is a decorated former Army Combat Engineer who served two tours of duty in Vietnam. He is a Life Member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and in 2012 was enrolled as an Honorary Life Member of the Legion of Valor. In 1998 and again in 2002 he was appointed by Colorado Governor Bill Owens to terms on the Colorado State Board of Veterans Affairs, and was subsequently elected to that Board as its Chairman.
In 1998 Doug launched a website at HomeOfHeroes.com to document the citations and biographies of our Nation’s Medal of Honor recipients. His website today receives more than 10 million hits each month. In 2001 he expanded his work to create a comprehensive database of military award recipients, and partnered with Military Times where he continues his work as Curator of the “Hall of Valor”, the the largest and most complete unoffical database of U.S. Military award recipients in the world.
Doug’s wife Pam, while a student at CSU-Pueblo, authored “The Stolen Valor Act” which she and Doug shepherded through Congress, as well as hearing before the U.S. Supreme Court in what became a landmark 2012 First Amendment decision. Their efforts are detailed in their 2014 book: Restoring Valor – One Couple’s Mission to Expose Fraudulent War Heroes and Protect America’s Military Awards System.
Doug has been a frequent guest on all major News Networks, and in May 2011 was named CNN’s most intriguing person in the news. He has been featured in two half-hour documentaries, and done two guest appearances for Lou Diamond Phillips’ History Channel program “An Officer and a Movie.” He and Pam were featured in a 2011 in AARP Magazine, the largest circulation magazine in the world, and he was again featured the following year (January 2012) in “Penthouse” for his work.

Suzie Patterson is a stripper with a drug problem. Estranged from her mother and infant daughter, her life is spinning out of control. Her life is further compounded by a late night assault.
Devon Anderson is the "lone wolf"; Army CID Agent who comes to her rescue, and, having just met her, he can't stay away from her.
Together they must find a way to deal with her problem and heal each other.
"Suzie, look at me and focus solely on me," Devon directed. "The second step in recovery is to acknowledge the strength and the control of a higher power. Do you understand that?"
She nodded quietly and shivered, noticing the coldness of his eyes, unflinching, unmoving, and dark beyond imagination.
"Suzie, tonight, I become YOUR higher power!"
