Doug Mauritz served in the US Air Force, joining in October 1995 following his High School graduation. Following his enlistment, he was sent on Temporary Duty from Eielson AFB, Fairbanks North Star, Alaska to Kuwait. His unit, the 354th Maintenance Squadron, was awarded the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal.
Following his discharge in January 2000, Doug relocated to Marshfield, joining Mueller-Hintz VFW Post 1866 in 2001 where he is a Life Member. He has served as Post Judge Advocate, Quartermaster, JVC, SVC, and Commander, as well as District JVC and SVC. He is currently in his second consecutive term as District 7 Commander, earning All-State (Team Captain) honors in 2022-2023. He looks forward to continuing to mentor those he recruits.
One of the highlights of his volunteerism for Veterans’ causes has resulted in the merging of two of Doug’s passions: helping Veterans and riding motorcycles. He is a founding member of the Dept. of Wisconsin Riders Group and spearheaded the organizing of the District 7 Riders Group as well. Doug and his wife Jennifer, who is an active member of the VFW Auxiliary, live and work in Marshfield.
