He reached the rank of E-5 Petty Officer 2nd class and worked as an Armorer then as an Aircraft Hydraulics Mechanic. He once stopped an aircraft from going in the air due to noticing a mechanical problem. The aircraft would not have lasted in flight and he was recognized by his unit for his attention to detail. Domingo also boxed for over 10 years as a lightweight. He won an Atlantic fleet title and was runner up to an all military title which the Sailors in the audience felt he was robbed. Domingo loved baseball and enjoyed watching his children and grand children play baseball and soccer.
