Manuel, born in Wareham, Massachusetts to the union of Manuel Joseph Rose, Sr. and Lillian Ormsby joined the U. S. Navy at an early age. Manuel became a crane operator loading and unloading dangerous ammunition onto ships. After traveling to many different locations in the United States, Manuel was stationed at Pier 91 in Seattle. He decided to be discharged in Seattle because he loved the water which reminded him of his home in New England and he made many friends.
