Airman 1st Class Carl L. Anderson Obituary


His name was officially Carl L. Anderson Jr., but his family knew him as "Little Carl" and his military buddies called him "C.J.," for Cool Jones. Anderson enjoyed music and sports, said his sister, Carletta. He once had a car with a disco ball and was repairing a 1978 Chevrolet Impala he nicknamed "Sheila." Anderson, 21, of Georgetown, S.C., died Aug. 29 when his truck ran over a roadside bomb near Mosul. He was based at Elmendorf Air Force Base. He and his sister, two years apart in age, talked at least once a day while he was stationed stateside. "He liked hip-hop, and he would try to rap and write lyrics," she said. Anderson entered the Air Force after graduating from high school in 2001. The easygoing middle child, he was voted most popular in his senior class. "He was very friendly and outgoing and very well-liked," said the Rev. William Walker, Anderson''s godfather. "He will be missed. It''s like there was a link in a chain, and there will be no one else who can fill that spot." Anderson is survived by his parents, Doris and Carl Anderson.
