A Soldier's Story: Staff Sergeant Diobanjo San Agustin


Staff Sergeant Diobanjo San Agustin was born in 1986 in the Philippines. He and his family immigrated to National City, California, and he enlisted in the US Army in 2007. 

Taking advantage of the US Military's path to citizenship, Staff Sergeant Diobanjo San Agustin would become a US citizen in Kuwait while on his first deployment for the War on Terror in Iraq. After that, he would decide to become a career soldier and would ultimately deploy two additional times, once to Kosovo and once to Afghanistan.  

On September 4, 2018, Staff Sergeant San Agustin was involved in a fatal accident at Bagram Air Base during his third deployment.
