Quartermaster Corps honors 101-year-old Army veteran

Retired Army Maj. Anthony Grant, who will celebrate his 102nd birthday in January, is one of the relatively few World War II veterans still alive. Born in Harlem and raised in St. Lucia during his youth, Grant was drafted in 1942 and served until 1963. Continuing to work for the government, he managed a number of commissaries in Europe and the U.S., and then took an administrative job at Langley Air Force Base. Grant’s passions these days are spending time with family, traveling and reading. He said he also enjoys outdoor walks every other day. (U.S. Army photo by T. Anthony Bell)
