Army Lt. Col. Anthony L. Sherman
Died August 27, 2003 Serving During Operation Iraqi Freedom
43, of Pottstown, Pa.; assigned to the 304th Civil Affairs Brigade, Army Reserve, based in Philadelphia, Pa.; died Aug. 27 of non-combat-related injury in Camp Arifjan, Kuwait.
Lt. Col. Anthony L. Sherman had been in the military for more than 20 years. He was eligible for retirement before he was deployed to Kuwait City in February, but his wife said he probably would never have left the military.
“He loved it,” Lisa Ann Sherman said. “He was very good at what he did.”
Sherman, 43, of Pottstown, Pa., died Aug. 27 of a non-combat injury.
He is also survived by his 8-year-old son, Anthony Grant.
Sherman, a member of the Pottstown Pacers Running Club, had been deployed with the 304th Civil Affairs Brigade, based in Philadelphia. Family friend Monica Weister said a part of Sherman’s job was to make sure hospitals and other public buildings were being taken care of correctly.
