Last Known Activity
Second Lieutenant, U.S. Army
106th Infantry Regiment, 27th Division, A.E.F.
Date of Action: September 27, 1918
The Distinguished Service Cross is presented to Lane S. Anderson, Second Lieutenant, U.S. Army, for extraordinary heroism in action in the attack on the Hindenburg Line in France, September 27, 1918. Shortly after reaching his objective his detachment was attacked and almost encircled by the enemy, who were covering the position with sweeping machine-gun fire. In the face of this fire, Lieutenant Anderson, with a grenade in each hand, jumped up from the cover of his position and attacked the enemy by bombing. He had advanced but a short distance when he was struck several times by machine-gun shots. He was dragged back to his trench and died shortly after.
