Alabama National Guardsman Dies While Serving In Cuba

A veteran Alabama National Guardsman currently serving in Cuba died of a heart attack Sunday afternoon.

58-year-old Ronald Claunch, a first sergeant with the Prattville-based 217th Military Police Battalion, was deployed to Guantanamo Bay in July of last year. The Alexander City native had served in the military for almost 40 years. The unit's 135 soldiers have been providing security for detainees from the war on terrorism, including al-Qaida and Taliban members. Funeral services for Claunch have not been finalized, but relatives said he will be buried in Alexander City.
