"LCpl Anderson was attached to my platoon while we were deployed in Afghanistan. As LCpl Anderson's Platoon Sergeant he was quiet but always dependable. He wanted to go out as often as possible and loved manning his machine gun. He was a vital part of our platoon and the Marine Corps. Devil Dog when you left us we had a hole in our platoon that no one could fill. You successfully completed your mission, bravely and with my deepest admiration. I held your hand as you left us and it was the hardest day of my life, I felt like I had lost a son. May you rest in peace and Semper Fi!"
