KINGSTON, OK - Funeral plans have been announced for a Texoma soldier who died in Afghanistan earlier this month. 27-year-old 2nd Lt. Joe Lee Cunningham of Kingston will be laid to rest in his hometown after a service at First Baptist Church in Madill at 11 a.m. Saturday.

The Army says Cunningham died in a non-combat incident on August 13th in the Laghman Province.

He's one of seven Oklahoma National Guardsmen killed in Afghanistan this summer, making this month the deadliest for the 45th Infantry Brigade since the Korean War.

There are currently 2,200 members of the 45th serving in Afghanistan.
