Sanders Anniverary

Major and Mae Sanders

In the spring of 1943, Major Sanders set his eyes on Mae Anthony, and while it’s a bit cliché’, he will say that it was love at first sight. Major and Mae dated for a year so. Mae was not easy girl; Mae wanted to make sure that he was the one. By 1944, Major enlisted in the Navy. Just before he was deployed he asked Mae to marry him. “That was really trying time for us. I was afraid I wouldn’t see him again. He wrote letters often to make sure I was still his girl,” Mae recalls. Major returned from his assignment in December 1945. Read More»
