Hello, and welcome to our website!
I am Alton Head, and it is my pleasure to serve as the Commander of American Legion Post 516 in McDonough, Ga. Our post began in the 1950’s when men returning from World War 2 and Korea wanted a place where they could fellowship and be of continued service to the community. Since that time Post 516 has been a pillar in the Henry County area. From our humble beginnings we have been and will continue to be a source of goodwill and assistance to veterans.
Presently we provide school supplies for area school children, referral services for Veterans, participate in food, clothing, and water drives for communities that have been ravaged by weather events, and one of our proudest accomplishments is helping Veterans in need with repair to their homes.
Our post has been selected as Post Of The Year several times in the past few years, and we continue to strive for excellence in our membership and our responsibility to veterans and the community.
If you are an honorably discharged veteran, we invite you to consider joining Post 516.
“We Are Looking For A Few Good Men and Women.”
Our amazing leadership team drive our missions, and push us to always be the best we can be for our cause.
Henry County native Willie B. Hatcher died in the line of duty while serving in the U.S. Army during World War Two.
We focus on making the maximum positive effort for our community of veterans. Our members provide the momentum that helps us affect change.
