ARDMORE, OK - A fallen Texoma solider arrives home in Oklahoma on Thursday afternoon. The body of 27-year-old 2nd Lieutenant "Joe Lee Cunningham" will arrive in Ardmore at one o'clock on Thursday where he will be escorted down Highway 70 to Madill.
Cunningham will be laid to rest in his hometown of Kingston, OK after a service at First Baptist Church in Madill at 11:00am Saturday morning.
The Army says Cunningham died in a non-combat related incident on August 13th.
He is 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.
