NORFOLK, Va. - Cmdr. Doug Ivanac, a native of Herminie, Pennsylvania, serves aboard USS Gerald R. Ford, homeported in Norfolk, Virginia.  Ivanac graduated from Yough High School in 1998 and earned a degree from Ohio State in 2002.

The skills and values needed to succeed in the Navy are similar to those found in Herminie.  “I grew up in Scouts and sports, so I learned the importance of service above self,” said Ivanac. “Earning Eagle Scout was one of the bonuses when applying for a Naval ROTC scholarship. That scholarship made college possible for me, which led to this rewarding career.”

Ivanac joined the Navy 22 years ago. Today, Ivanac serves as a navigator.
