Manuel Daog - A Soldier's Journey Home!
On October 4, 2019 Manuel Daog returned from Florida to Hilo to attend a Veteran Reunion Luau but sadly fell seriously ill and was admitted to our Pōhai Mālama Care Facility. A special "We Honor Veteran's" pinning ceremony was done with his family, friends and Hawai‘i Care Choices staff to recognize Manuel's contribution in the U.S. Army. On Sunday, October 6, Manuel died with his children and grandchildren at his bedside.
Manuel Daog, Staff Sergeant, U.S. Army, was born on February 12, 1929 in Hilo, Hawaii. He was the fourth of five children. His parents Benita and Benito Daog came to Hawai‘i from Cebu, Philippines.
