Dr. Manley was raised in Evansville and graduated from Harwood Grade School in 1966 and Central High School in 1970. He graduated with distinction from the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland in 1974, with a degree in Mechanical Engineering.
Following a year of training in nuclear propulsion, Dr. Manley served in the engineering department in USS SEAWOLF (SSN 575), a fast-attack, nuclear submarine based near San Francisco. In SEAWOLF Dr. Manley had the privilege of serving under Capt. Charles MacVean and participated in some exciting espionage missions during the Cold War with the Soviet Union. Some of the exploits of SEAWOLF are recounted in the books Blind Man’s Bluff and Red November.
Dr. Manley then served two years as a Tenth Company Officer at the Naval Academy. These years coincided with the junior and senior years for the first class of women at the Naval Academy. Tenth Company had more female midshipmen than any other company and Dr. Manley had the honor of appointing the first female Midshipman company commander in the history of the academy.
During and after his time at the academy Dr. Manley attended the University of Maryland where he earned his Masters in Business Administration. After graduate school, Dr. Manley attended the Submarine Officers Advanced Course in Groton, Connecticut.

His next tour of duty was as Navigator, Operations Officer, and Chief Nuclear Test Officer in the fast-attack nuclear submarine USS PLUNGER (SSN 595), based first near Seattle and then in San Diego. In 1983, after two years in PLUNGER, Dr. Manley resigned from active duty to enter medical school.
