Douglas E. Provance was born in Trenton, Missouri on April 19,1963. "Childhood was unique for me, as I was raised by my grandparents - Harry Dale and Helen Whitney." he said, adding, "They were great and loving parents."

As Provance grew up, he gained a deep interest in the military. "My uncle, William Duncan Whitney "Uncle Wee" was at the Battle of Iwo Jima with the United States Marines and received a Purple Heart posthumously for his sacrifice on the battlefield. "I have his medals, and his picture, as well as some of his effects, and they mean so very much to me." Provance stated.
