"A member in excellent standing, Len Anderson has been fighting for truth and justice since his teens. A onetime member of the Green berets and a longtime member of A.I.M., his salary may seem excessive, but his extraordinary abilities easily merit the price." - Jagged Alliance.
"A career military man, Anderson was barely out of his teens before he joined the Green berets. After serving with distinction, he joined A.I.M. as one of its original members and fought alongside A.I.M.s founders in the battle for Angetta. Len is a strong leader, his tours of duty has earned him the respect and appreciation of many." - Jagged Alliance 2
- Back in his home town, the community minded Anderson teaches a NRA course on the proper care and handling of automatic weapons.
- In Jagged Alliance 2, Len's skills and experience don't advance. This is intended and not a bug (old dog and new tricks) and partly explain his very low price for his level. His baseline skills still make him worth hiring however, especially towards endgame.
- Somewhat gravelly voice. No-nonsense and honest in his assessments.
- Respect is earned and not given with this man.
- Has no fear of criticising poor leadership.
- Reminds of a hard but honest drill sergeant. Tends to be very by-the-book, otherwise.
"Sorry, I only accept assignments that meet my standards! It should be written in my file, but the incompetents running this show refused to put it in there!" - Initial refusal to hire (Jagged Alliance)
"Corporal Len Anderson is indisposed momentarily. If you would like me to call you back, please leave a message. Thank you." - Answering machine (Jagged Alliance 2)

"I've had a long career, but this truly feels like my longest assignment" - Low morale
"I promised the wife that I'd spend some time with her. Confirmed just a couple of hours ago in a letter I sent her. Sorry." - Cannot renew contract
"My tour of duty draws to a close, Sir." - Contract about to expire
"Dr. Q. never fails to impress." - praise quote
- He is listed as a Corporal, the third lowest rank in the U.S. Army; however, in the U.S. Army, a "career military man" who'd spent most of his life in the Army would retire at least at the rank of Staff Sergeant. In addition, it is not possible to be a Green Beret (U.S. Army Special Forces) without being at least at the rank of Sergeant. Maybe he got a discharge and demotion.
