Pvt Omling was born in Windouter Bavaria. He enlisted into the US Army on December 21, 1871 at Taylor Barracks Louisville KY. He was described as 5-5, hazel eyes, light hair, fair complexion. His civilian occupation was blacksmith. He was assigned to Company F 7th US Cavalry. His daliy duites were cook.

At the Battle of the Little Bighorn Company F was attached to Custer's battalion. After the battle many soldiers from Company F were found on Last Stand Hill or in the area of Deep Ravine. Omling's body was not identifed. It is likely that his unidentified remains were buried where they had been found. In 1881 all known battlefield burials were moved to a mass grave on Last Stand Hill.
