On December 19, 2013, Marty Smith, Chairman of the Carroll County Commissioners, presided over the dedication of the Carroll County Veterans Building, calling it the “embodiment of the ideals of justice, freedom, and democracy.”  Smith said, “As veterans, you have served our country well.  Now in time of peace, may you use this building to serve the republic fearlessly and well.”  This building provides a meeting place for American Legion Post 143, Carroll County Veterans Memorial Park Committee, Marine Corps League, Sons of the American Revolution, and Sons of Confederate Veterans.  The building was once used as elementary classrooms of the Oak Mountain Academy and was later the site of a day care program.  It was donated to Carroll County by the Southwire Company.  Pictured from the left, Charles Feaselman, representing the Aubrey Gilbert Marine Corps League Detachment; George Wheeless, president of the Casimir Pulaski Chapter Sons of the American Revolution; Sam Pyle, commander of the McDaniel Curtis Camp 155 Sons of the Confederate Veterans; Norris Garrett, president of the Carroll County Veterans Memorial Park Association; and Donald Levans, commander of Post 143 of the American Legion, hold the ceremonial keys to the newly dedicated Carroll County Veterans Building.
