Greenwood Cemetery has great respect for our military veterans. With four different military sections, Greenwood is the resting place of veterans from every war our country has been involved in. From the Revolutionary War to the Conflict in the Middle East, we are honored to serve our military heroes.
Our current section for veteran interments is Vet West. This section is located in the Northwest area of the Historic Side of Greenwood, directly across from the Public Receiving Vault.
World War I
The WWI section of Greenwood Cemetery is one of the most recognizable sections on our grounds. Identified by its many large white crosses, this section pays tribute to veterans who served in World War One. This section also hosts the wreath ceremony every holiday season.
World War II
Greenwood Cemetery honors our WWII vets with a special section solely for veterans of World War Two. Located directly across from the WWI section, WWII section is identified by its flat bronze and marble military markers.
Grand Army Of The Republic
The G.A.R Section, or Grand Army of the Republic, at Greenwood Cemetery is easily recognized for its podium, dual cannons and cannon balls. This section is the interment place for veterans of the Spanish American War, the Korean Conflict, WWII and the Vietnam War.
