Chuck Holton has been producing high-octane features and news for CBN since 2003. He has freelance reported from nearly all of the world's hot spots, including Afghanistan, Burma, Lebanon, Iraq, and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
After serving eight years in the U.S. Army - four with the Elite 75th Ranger Regiment and four flying helicopters as an Aeroscout Observer in the National Guard - Chuck went on to a successful career as a stockbroker.
Ten years later he felt compelled to spend more time with his family, so he left Wall Street to become a full-time writer. From that field he branched out into television.
Chuck is now the author of seven books, including Making Men, Bulletproof, A More Elite Soldier, Stories from a Soldier's Heart and the Task Force Valor series. He also collaborates with Lt. Col. Oliver North (USMC Retired) on the New York Times bestselling American Heroes series of books.
As a war correspondent and freelance video producer, Chuck travels to more than a dozen of the world's hot zones each year.
He frequently speaks to churches and other organizations around the world on the topics of Biblical manhood, life structuring, adoption, homeschooling, and other charitable and patriotic causes. When he is not traveling, he spends time at his farm in Appalachia with his wife Connie and their five children.
