In 1973, he accepted a Presidential nomination to the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland and graduated four years later with a Bachelor of Science degree in oceanography.
Doug then attended Naval Flight Officer training, qualifying as a jet navigator. Between 1979 and 1983 he flew hundreds of hours from the decks of the aircraft carriers USS Constellation and USS Ranger with Fleet Air Reconnaissance Squadron One. The missions took him from the eastern edge of the Soviet Union, south to Australia and as far west the African Coast and the Persian Gulf.
