A Pleasanton soldier has been killed while serving in Afghanistan. Army Spc. Jameson Lynn Lindskog, 23, was on his way to a military airport Tuesday when an apparent roadside bomb exploded.

The Pleasanton Weekly says Lindskog was a licensed massage therapist before enlisting in the Army as a medical technician.

Spc. Lindskog was due to be discharged next year.
