Good morning Joe,
I haven't heard him called that. "Dugout Doug".
My dad always called him that. I guess it was an affectionate name given him by his troops.

He got the name "Dugout Doug" in the Philippines if I remember correctly.
"We're the Battling Bastards of Bataan,
No mama, no papa, no Uncle Sam,
No aunts, no uncles, no cousins, no nieces,
No pills, no planes, no artillery pieces,
And nobody gives a damn!"
Frank Hewlett, 1942.
