Anderson poses for a photo in his U.S. Navy uniform during World War II, when he served by working on destroyer escorts that protected U.S. supplies and troop ships.
His lifetime spans the Great Depression, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Cuban missile crisis, the Cold War, FDR and JFK’s time in office, the beginning of space exploration, 9/11, the introduction of televisions, computers, the Internet and more.
