Bomb claims Ardmore soldier in Iraq


The Associated Press


ARDMORE, Okla. — An Ardmore soldier died in Iraq when a bomb exploded near his vehicle, the military said Monday.


Spc. William Allmon, 25, died Saturday in Baghdad, the Department of Defense confirmed.


Allmon was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 64th Armor Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division at Fort Stewart, Ga.


Allmon, a combat engineer who joined the Army in June 2000, was on his second deployment to Iraq, said Kevin Larson, a Fort Stewart spokesman. He previously deployed as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom from January 2005 to January 2006.


Allmon’s awards include two Army Commendation Medals, an Army Achievement Medal and a Combat Action Badge.


Funeral scheduled for 3rd ID combat engineer


The Associated Press


ROME, Ga. — The body of a 3rd Infantry Division soldier killed in Iraq has returned to Georgia.


Sgt. William E. Allmon was killed April 12 in Baghdad after his vehicle was hit by an improvised explosive device.


The combat engineer’s funeral will be held Tuesday at Pleasant Valley South Baptist Church in Silver Creek, Ga.


About 300 people, including family members, honored Allmon on Saturday. Allmon was born and raised in Floyd County until age 12. The Pentagon previously said Allmon lived in Ardmore, Okla.


Allmon’s father, William Allmon of Cartersville, Ga., says his son had two months to go on his second tour of duty in Iraq with the Fort Stewart, Ga.-based Army division and had been struck by a roadside bomb before.


His father says family members will miss his smile and antics because the 25-year-old was a “kid at heart.”


Sgt. William E. Allmon remembered

With his “beautiful red hair” and “prankster” tendencies, William E. Allmon “never lost the little boy,” said his mother, Donna Fortune.


That included the times when, in exchange for beer, he would offer fellow soldiers a dance with his mother at a bar near Fort Stewart.


“It was hilarious,” Fortune said. “We had a unique relationship.”


Allmon, 25, of Ardmore, Okla., was killed April 12 in Baghdad after his vehicle hit a roadside bomb. He was assigned to Fort Stewart and was on his second tour.


“If you didn’t know him, you missed out on a lot,” wrote Sgt. Richard White in a letter read tearfully by his wife during a funeral service. “You are not only my best friend, you are my brother.”


He is survived by his wife, Jennifer, their son, Damien, 3, and stepson, Jason “Luke” Johnson, 11.


“We’re going to miss his smile and his antics — he was a kid at heart. When we went to Chuck E. Cheese, he’d get as much out of it as the kids,” said the soldier’s father, William Allmon.


“He loved life and his children,” said his mother.
