FORT PAYNE, Ala. — Funeral services are scheduled Nov. 6 for a member of a Fort Payne-based Army National Guard unit killed in Kuwait.

The Pentagon says 19-year-old Spc. Adrian L. Avila of Opelika died at Khabari Crossing in Kuwait from injuries he received in a noncombat-related accident.

Avila was assigned as an infantryman with the 1343rd Chemical Company of the 151st Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Battalion. He had been in the National Guard for about two years.

Avila was among 130 members of the unit who left in April for training in Fort Hood, Texas, before being deployed to Kuwait for a year.
