    An insurgent attack in Afghanistan claims the life of a 23-year-old airman from Schiller Park.

    Chicago Breaking News reports Senior Airman Daniel Johnson died Tuesday in Kandahar.  Insurgents attacked his unit with an improvised explosive device.

    Johnson was a newlywed.  His relatives say he got married in June.

    Johnson wanted to be an EMT when he was living in Schiller Park with his grandmother, but he left that life behind when he went to serve in Afghanistan.
