Dom Lombardo (d. May 6, 1945) was a soldier in the United States Army. He served in the European Theater of World War II. On May 6, 1945, the day after Germany unconditionally surrendered, Lombardo was on patrol in a town called Lichtenau with Sgt. Charlie Pytlak. After accepting the surrender of a group of German soldiers, and turning them into the Army, Lombardo and Pytlak returned to their patrol. As they passed a derelict vehicle, a bomb planted inside went off. Lombardo was killed instantly; Pytlak lingered long enough to see the extent of his own injuries before dying in pain.
