MSG Thomas E. Anderson

 

MSG Thomas E. Anderson was an Operations and Intelligence Sergeant, a Korean War Veteran, Silver Star recipient, Master Parachutist, and C/3/12 unit member for over 10 years.

He was instrumental in the design and manufacture of the PRC-74 Radio by Hugh's Aircraft Corporation, which became standard issue for Special Forces.

While attending U.S. Army Ranger School in 1969, he lapsed into a diabetic coma and subsequently died.

He was a professional reservist and dedicated member of C/3/12.  T.E. Anderson Drop Zone (DZ) at AFRC Los Alamitos was named and dedicated in his honor for his outstanding contributions as a soldier.

Also in recogniton of MSG Anderson's excellence, C/3/12 dedicated their annual Soldier of the Year award in his name as well.

The T.E. Anderson Soldier of the Year award was limited to SF qualified personnel E-6 and below for outstanding performance of military duties.

The recipient was determined by vote of all the unit's Senior Operations Sergeants.  In case of a tie, the unit SGM would cast a deciding vote.
