Birth: Aug. 27, 1924
Newaygo County
Michigan, USA
Death: Oct. 25, 1944, At Sea

Phillip E. Anderson TM3c at his time of enlisted in the US Navy was from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada and he volunteered for the Submarine Service during WWII.
He was assigned to the USS Tang (SS 306) commanded by CDR R. H. O'Kane.
On the night of October 24, 1944 the USS Tang was finishing off a record war patrol and she had attacked a convoy. O'Kane was going to fire her last two torpedoes at a crippled Japanese merchant ship and then head for home. The last torpedo fired went erratic and made a circular run striking the Tang in the stern. Out of 87 Tang crew members only 9 men escaped from the submarine, Charles Andriolo was not one of the 9. Unable to escape, he went down with the Tang and is now on Eternal Patrol in the Formosa Strait near Turnabout Island.
