Marines Logo... to the William E. Dillard American Legion Post 104 of Sylva, NC.  We strive to serve all military veterans and their families within the local communities of Jackson and Swain Counties in Western North Carolina as best as our abilities will allow us to do so.  Post 104 is always in need of other dedicated veterans to assist us with the many endeavors in which we are involved and the units that we served under are a part of the United States Armed Forces. Therefore, your participation is greatly needed within this organization in whatever manner that God has gifted you to serve others. The Legion still needs a “Few Good Men.”

It is quite ironic, because some people believe that our service towards other veterans ended upon our separation from active military service.  On the contrary, it is because of our joint unity, as veterans, that we serve to protect the freedoms of this nation, so that those who survived the rigors of serving in the Armed Forces might serve veterans in other ways.

No Airman, Coast Guard, Marine, Sailor, or Soldier ever trained or served alone in the pursuit of serving this great nation and Post 104 is no different.  We need active veterans because you are gifted and skilled in some way that is a valuable asset to the veterans whom we attempt to serve on a regular basis.  If you are motivated to offer your gifts, talents, and skills to this local post, that we might assist other veterans in a better way then, I would encourage you to contact us and make yourself and your skills available.   Further more, I would encourage any current member who is not currently involved with this post to attend one of our monthly meetings.

Thank you veterans and to your families for their sacrifice towards your military service.

Honoring first-responders who serve our community…

Mallary Caraway

Monday, September 13, 2021, at Post 104 was a night of remembering two highly recognized citizen servants who do so much for our community. Homage is given to honor firefighters Mallary Caraway and Jim Surrusco for their outstanding service to the city of Sylva, North Carolina. Mallary was chosen by Fire Chief Mike Beck as the firefighter of the year and Jim is a former FDNY 9/11 firefighter. During a special dinner and ceremony, Post 104 Commander Ed Harwood commends each individual for their service and awards them a Challenge Coin with the image of 9/11 on it and in turn he challenges these fine servants to continue their service to the city of Sylva.
