BELLEVUE, Ohio — A Fort Campbell, Ky., soldier from northwestern Ohio has died nearly two weeks after being injured in Iraq.
The Army said Staff Sgt. Jonathon L. Martin, 33, of Bellevue, died Nov. 22 in Regensburg, Germany, of wounds he suffered Nov. 9 in Jisr Naft when his vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb. He was serving his third tour of duty in Iraq.
Martin was a cavalry scout assigned to A Troop, 1st Squadron, 32nd Cavalry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division, the military said. He is survived by his wife, Rebecca, and children, Allura, Trenton and Alaina, of Fort Campbell; and his parents, Laura and Donald Martin of Bellevue, Fort Campbell said.
He entered the Army in 1997 and had been at Fort Campbell for two years, the post said.
Hundreds of people paid $10 apiece Nov. 25 for a lunch in Bellevue to benefit Martin’s family, with many throwing in a few extra dollars.
Kentucky Gov. Ernie Fletcher ordered flags at all state office buildings to remain at half-staff in Martin’s honor.
