Wai Man Wong was born in 1955 in Hong Kong. He was enlisted in the Royal Hong Kong Regiment (The Volunteers) in 1982 as a part-time officer and had served for 15 years.

When Wong was a full-time administrative officer in the Hong Kong Government, he focussed on human resources and administrations. Since joining the army he took multiple trainings abroad. In 1985 he was first selected to attend the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst. When he returned, Wong was promoted from Training Officer to Lieutenant. In 1987 he went to the School of Infantry, Warminster, attending the Platoon Commander Battle Course, and in the following year, he went for the second time, taking the All Armed Tactics Course. Upon his return in 1992, Wong was promoted to Major.

In Hong Kong, Wong was also responsible for leading the Junior Leader Corps, Royal Hong Kong Regiment (The Volunteers).

In 1992 he retired from the army as a Major because of the forthcoming transfer of sovereignty over Hong Kong to China in 1997.
