A funeral has been scheduled for an Altus Air Force Base airman who died last week while serving in Afghanistan.
The Altus Times reports that a service will be held Saturday in Sumter, S.C., for 23-year-old Staff Sgt. Andrew Bubacz.
The Department of Defense says Bubacz died Friday after sustaining head injuries while maintaining a communications tower at a forward operating base in Nuristan, Afghanistan. His death is under investigation.
Bubacz was assigned to the 97th Communications Squadron at Altus Air Force Base. Squadron commander, Maj. Randy Wardak, says Bubacz had a tremendous effect on the unit and across the base, and will be missed.
Bubacz was from Dalzell, S.C.
