Doug Applegate for Congress

Doug Applegate grew up in a working-class neighborhood just outside of Dayton, Ohio and was the first member of his family to attend college. In 1974, Doug joined the United States Marine Corps, just months before the fall of Saigon. Initially, Doug served as an Infantry Officer, then went on to become a Judge Advocate. From there, Doug has had a successful career as both a small business owner and an attorney, while continuing to serve his country in the Marine Corps Reserve. Doug retired from the Marines in 2006 after 32 years of service, both active and reserve. Doug has lived and worked in the 49th Congressional District for over 30 years and has raised his family there.
