Dustin Anderson, better known as Dusty was the True Cowboy of Skiddy, Kansas. Dusty lived at Skiddy his entire life except for the time he played a major role in ending WWII. Dusty was one of four men, under General Douglas MacArthur’s plan of returning to the Philippines, whom raised the American flag on the Philippine island of Dinegat and Suluan offshore Leyte. Later, Dusty and a few other Rangers of the 6th Ranger Battalion had a special mission resulting in the liberation of a Japanese prison of war camp, Luzon. As Dusty and the other rangers crawled on their bellies toward the camp, a US military plane flew overhead turning its engine off and on and acting as if it were to crash. It flew just 30 feet over the tree lines. As the Japanese were taken by the sight, the Rangers caught them by surprise resulting in the freedom of the prisoners. These prisoners, survivors of The Bataan Death March, described the atrocities they endured and this inflamed America into ending the war.
