About the Author



Doug 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 consecutive 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 to document the citations and biographies of our Nation's Medal of Honor recipients. 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 unofficial database of U.S. Military award recipients in the world. In 2018 he sold the HomeOfHeroes website to focus all his attention on efforts to complete his awards database.

Doug's wife Pam, while a student at CSU-Pueblo, authored "The Stolen Valor Act" which she and Doug shepherded through Congress. It became a landmark hearing before the U.S. Supreme Court in what became a 2012 First Amendment decision that struck down the act. Within two years, however, Congress acted with near unanimity to craft and pass a more limited version of the Stolen Valor Act. 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 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.
