Feola received a bachelor of science in business administration from Wesleyan and graduated from the Naval Aviation Schools command as an officer receiving a designation as a naval aviator.  He spent 11 years on active duty, including a decorated one-year tour as a combat helicopter pilot in Vietnam.

For his years of service in the Antarctic program, a geographic feature, Mount Feola, was designated in his honor.  It is located in the Asgard Range, Dry Valleys, near McMurdo Station, Antarctica.
