NARROWSBURG — March 20, 2007 — Sullivan County lost a native son this past weekend in
the Iraq War when PFC Anthony Kaiser, 27, a Narrowsburg native, was killed in a roadside
ambush just outside of Baghdad.
An MP with the U.S. Army, 571 MP Company, Kaiser was serving as a gunner with his unit
when a car pulled up to his roadside checkpoint and opened fire. According to his brother
Steven, who also serves in the U.S. Army, Kaiser was hit in the head.
Exact details are still unknown and it wasn’t clear whether any other soldiers were killed in
the attack. Kaiser’s body is en route to the United States and will arrive at Dover AFB in
Funeral arrangements, under the direction of Rasmussen Funeral Home in Narrowsburg, are
still pending.
“They came under attack from another vehicle and Anthony was killed,” Andy Kaiser,
Anthony’s father, said Sunday afternoon from his Narrowsburg home. “It happened Friday or
Saturday. Being an MP in Iraq is probably the worst thing to be.
“His wife is pretty distraught,” Kaiser said. “It’s just horrible. I had kept my fingers crossed for
1 1⁄2 years.”
This is the second Kaiser to serve in Iraq. Anthony’s brother, Steven, served in both Kuwait
and Iraq.
“He served abroad for 1 1/2 years,” Kaiser said. “He’s a Staff Sergeant with the U.S. Army,
serving in Hawaii.
