Charles W. Cobb, Sr. Annual Memorial Golf Tournament was founded in 2012 and is hosted by Jerry L. Johnson & Associates, Inc. where Charles W. Cobb, Sr. served as company president for 21 years.
Charles W. Cobb, Sr. endeared himself to many through his generous nature, strong work ethic, and his caring lifestyle. He was a loving husband, father of three, and a dedicated veteran. A recipient of the Bronze Star and Purple Heart, Cobb served in the United States Army from 1966-1969 as Squad Commander for the 173rd Airborne Brigade during the Vietnam War.
Charles was a tough man with a generous heart. A natural born leader that loved his country, Charles spread his love throughout his community by donating to local charities. Charles had a great love for the game of golf and was a fierce competitor. It is through this Memorial Tournament that we continue his legacy of generosity.
VSG is a nonprofit organization, located in McDonough, GA, dedicated to providing FREE assistance to veterans of all branches of service and their families with Veterans Benefits, Veterans Health, and the National Cemetery. With over 17,000 veterans residing in Henry County and 15,000-20,000 in surrounding communities, VSG believes with increased support from our community partners, we will be able to aid a majority of this population.
VSG is currently renovating a home in downtown McDonough, Georgia. The Veterans House & Service Center (VHSC) will provide transitional assistance to veterans, such as: educational classes, job search applications, resource referrals, two free meals per day, clothing, and personal hygiene supplies for homeless veterans to assist with job interviews.
The Service Center will provide veterans and their surviving spouses with access to care for reduction of re-submissions and re-encounters. Additionally, it will bring increased awareness to veterans about illnesses related to their military exposures. Veterans will receive referrals to VA healthcare or VA community care to reduce preventable instances of heart disease, hypertension, and stroke.
With your sponsorship of the Charles W. Cobb, Sr. Memorial Golf Tournament, 100% of the proceeds will be dedicated to helping the Veterans Support Group complete their new service center renovations. Once the Veterans House & Service Center opens, VSG will be prepared to serve as many as 500-1,000 veterans and spouses in Henry County and surrounding communities.
