Our son, Gunnery Sergeant Chad Anderson has been deployed to Afghanistan since July 2013. While there he had the opportunity to give a shout out to his family and his favorite college team, the West Virginia University Mountaineers. His wife, Melissa and children, Cameron and Caitlyn have been staying busy at Camp Lejeune while he has been gone. They miss him very very much. We, his parents (Jim and Anne Anderson) live in Parkersburg, West Virginia. We are so very proud of his service to our country, for his military accomplishments, and his unselfish sacrifices he has made to defend our freedoms during his 15 years of being a Marine. Chad is currently serving at Camp Leatherneck with the Combat Logistics Regiment 2. Everyone is counting down the days until he returns home in February. He is one of the Few and the Proud! We love him so much!
