It was truly a humbling moment to be in the presence of MAJ(R) Anthony Grant, 102 years young, Quartermaster Hall of Fame member.
MAJ(R) Grant provided great wisdom and mentorship by sharing his military experiences as a Quartermaster Soldier. He was drafted by the Army in 1942, shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor, and retired in 1963 at the rank of Major.
Throughout his tenure, he served in logistical positions as a Noncommissioned Officer, Warrant Officer and culminating as a Commissioned Officer.
He completed basic training at Fort Dix, NJ and initial military schooling at Fort Lee, VA. He managed several commissaries in Europe and the U.S. following retirement and later performed administrative work at Langley Air Force Base. Grant retired from civil service in 1998.
MAJ(R) Grant is truly a legend in his own time within the community and the Quartermaster Corps!
