During World War II, Candido was serving with Battery B of the 200th Coast Artillery Corps in the Philippines when Imperial Japanese began their invasion on 8 Dec 1941. After the artillery had been destroyed by the aerial attacks, the 200th resorted to fighting as infantry and became known as the "Battlin' Bastards of Bataan".

They were among American and Filipino forces on the Bataan Peninsula when compelled to surrender on 9 Apr 1942. Candido survived the Bataan Death March that followed, but died as a POW in Hoten POW Camp, Manchuria where he was exploited as slave labor.
