Protest over Fort McPherson commissary closing

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Several families of retired military personnel rallied on Saturday to protest the closing of the commissary at Fort McPherson.

The commissary, which serves members of metro Atlanta's active and retired armed forces, is scheduled to close later this month.

The daylong demonstration on Saturday included speeches and a petition drive.

Many feel betrayed by the closure after promises that a commissary would stay in the area.

Protestors say the commissary closes on September 28th.
