Nicholaus E. Zimmer always lived the way he wanted to. "He was just in charge of himself the whole time. When he made up his mind to do something, he did it. He was always determined," said Janine Jackson, the mother of one of Zimmer''s friends, Jimmy Jackson. Zimmer, 20, of Columbus, Ohio, was killed May 30 in Kufa, Iraq, when his vehicle was hit by rocket propelled grenades. Zimmer was based in Friedburg, Germany. Lisa Zimmer said her son was proud to serve his country but that she could tell he was ready to come home. Zimmer was known for dyeing his hair different colors or wearing a mohawk before he enlisted in the Army. Survivors also include his father, Harold Zimmer.
