A single father from the East Bay was killed in iraq. Thirty-one-year-old Michael Manibog is a graduate of San Leandro High School. The Army specialist is survived by his 9-year-old son. Friends say he joined the military to help get his life on the right track. Manibog and three others soldiers died Friday, when their vehicle rolled over a bomb in the city of Taji. It's about 20 miles north of Baghdad, in the Sunni triangle.
