His claim to immortality is that he was the only Tagalog general to lead a full scale military expedition to the Visayas Against the Spanish forces. He was also among the very few who, in the "twilight of the period of the revolution" bravery undertook guerrilla warfare against the Americans.

General Diokno began his military career as Secretary of War in the departmental government of Batangas. He distinguished himself in several battles in the Batangas-Laguna-Tayabas zone. The expedition to the Visayas he led has for its purpose the annihilation of the Spanish stronghold in that region at the same time unifying the Visayan rebel forces with the Central Revolutionary Government of Aguinaldo. This he was able to carry out.

The American government in 1916 offered him the directorship of the Bureau of Agriculture, but he refused because he believed it is a disloyalty to his country to serve the very foreigners who suppressed its independence.
