Man was born in Kien An, Vietnam, to Bau Van Pham and Thom Thi Nguyen on February 10, 1942. He married Xi Thi Pham (Nguyen) on July 8, 1965. They raised 3 sons and 3 daughters.

At the age of 20, Man joined the Vietnamese military academy Truong Bo Binh Thu Duc. He graduated 2 years later and began his career as a Military Intelligence Officer in the Tay Ninh province in Vietnam. He also later served in the Long Khanh province in Vietnam. He rose among the ranks to a Captain. Before the fall of Vietnam in 1975, he arranged for his wife, 5 children (+1 on the way), parents and siblings’ families to flee to the U.S. He was unable to escape with his family as he was captured by the Vietnamese Communist regime. He was a POW for 13 years. In 1990, he was reunited with his family in the U.S. under the Humanitarian Operation program.

In his spare time, he enjoyed gardening and spending time with his 13 grandchildren.
