The idea for the building of Greenwood Veterans' Memorial Park was that of Floyd "Red" Clark. Started in 2005, it was initially intended to be a memorial to the residents of the Wilson area who served in World War II. However, during construction, this focus was expanded to include all of those who served from the Wilson Area. There are flags flown for each branch of service, plus a large American flag. On the wall, over 2,500 names commemorate the men and women who served this nation.

In 2012, the Clark family gave the land on which this memorial sits to the town of Wilson, with the American Legion Martin F. Jennings Post #836 tending to the maintenance of the wall, flags, etc. On this site, the Legion Post hosts a ceremony every Memorial Day at 10 A.M.
