Colonel Grant Eugene Zachary Jr. -US Army(Ret.)
Marianne and Family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family on the loss of Grant. He was a great guy and made the National Guard (both in Minnesota and at the National level) better because of his professionlism, dedication and humanity. He will be missed.
I truly enjoyed the time spent with Grant in the few years I knew him. He was always a friend to me at NGB with a smile and a kind greeting. He never hesitated to take time to visit. I'm thankful for the time spent with him. Please know, you and your family are in the McSheffrey family prayers tonight. May God provide you comfort in this time of loss. Lou
My deepest condolences to COL Zachary's family. He will be greatly missed and fondly remembered.

Dearest Friends, I was so sad to hear about the loss of Grant today. It's such a shock to us all. As a young officer, I worked closely with Grant as a member of the RRAC II and R&R Command. He was a good mentor and friend to many of us. later, while working as the G1 and COS in Delaware, I became friends with Marianne, who also is a top Soldier and mentor. I wish there were some words to ease your loss, but I want you to know, that we are here with support and prayers for you all. God bless!
I've known Grant since he was in Minnesota before he ever went to NGB the first time, must be since the very early 90s. I am so very sorry to hear of his passing. My prayers are lifted for Marianne and the family. May you be comforted during your time of grief. Jimmy Shafe, Grayson, GA
