G. Kenneth Anderson

The President of the United States takes great pleasure in presenting the Distinguished Flying Cross to First Lieutenant George K. Anderson for extraordinary achievement while participating in aerial flight while serving as Co-Pilot on a B-17 airplane on many heavy bombardment missions over enemy occupied Continental Europe. Displaying outstanding airmanship and skillfully assisting his Pilot on sustained operations, Lieutenant Anderson’s actions have been a contributing factor to the success of each of these missions, among which were the operations over Berlin, Germany, 4 March 1944; Munich, Germany, 18 March 1944; and Berlin, Germany, 29 April 1944. The courage, coolness and skill displayed by Lieutenant Anderson on all these occasions reflect the highest credit upon himself and the Armed Forces of the United States.
