RICHMOND, Ind. — A soldier from Richmond was killed when an improvised explosive device struck his vehicle, the Department of Defense said.

Spc. Johnathan A. Lahmann, 21, died Dec. 10 in Tikrit of wounds suffered in an explosion in Bayji, Iraq, the military said.

Lahmann was assigned to the 59th Engineer Company, 20th Engineer Battalion, 36th Engineer Brigade, based at Fort Hood, Texas.

Family members said military officials told them he died in a suicide bombing.

Lahmann, the son of Linda and Alan Lahmann Jr., was a 2004 graduate of Richmond High School.

“I saw the military out here and I knew it,” said neighbor Monica Hardwick. “That hurts. He was a great kid.”

She said the last time she saw Lahmann was when he and a friend made a fire pit in the Lahmanns’ back yard. “He was a great neighbor,” she said. “Very polite kid, good manners.”

Army Spc. Johnathan A. Lahmann was killed in action on 12/10/07.
