Doug gives you an idea of what it was like to fly a dust off mission in South Vietnam to pick up an injured American soldier to get him to a medical facility.

Doug grew up on the East Coast and shortly after he entered a military college, he enlisted in the US Army and went to flight school to learn to fly helicopters. He is a decorated Vietnam veteran, having served more than twenty years as an aviator in the United States Army. Doug continued to serve others by working in the financial services industry for twenty-five years, helping families with their financial security. Today he continues to take deep-seated passion in making a difference in the lives of others through his life-affirming messages, and is fulfilling his life’s purpose by inspiring people into action. He is an award-winning author of six enlightening, thought-provoking books, reaffirming the good in all of us.
