GENERAL ORDERS # 211 - 28 June 1953

   Sergeant TERRELL ANDERSON, RA14144405, Infantry, Company "G", 65th Infantry
Regiment, 3d Infantry Division, United States Army. During the early morning hours
of 16 May 1953, a platoon of Company "G" was holding the northern sector of Outpost
"Harry" in the vicinity of Songnae-dong, Korea. Sergeant Anderson, the platoon
sergeant, was among his men when enemy mortar and artillery fire began landing in
the area. He immediately checked to see that all of his men had adequate cover from
the shell blasts. Upon receiving word that friendly mortar flares were to be used
in the area. he moved through the devastating fire, warning his men to remain con-
cealed and not to expose their positions to the enemy. As Sergeant Anderson went to
each position, he instilled confidence and a fighting spirit among his men and was
inspirational to others as he repeatedly moved through the intensely shelled area in
the interest of the welfare of his comrades. While he was moving to an extremely
exposed position, a close landing mortar round mortally wounded him. Sergeant
ANDERSON'S outstanding gallantry and devotion to duty reflect great credit upon him-
self and the military service. Entered the Federal Service from Alabama.
