Veterans Day Remembrance
Begun with a small group of community volunteers, with the mission of providing a memorial plaza dedicated to honoring all who serve in the armed forces of the United States of America, past, present, and future, the Veterans Plaza Memorial is open to the public.
Located at 512 Schertz Parkway, the Plaza is a pentagon over a star with its five tips pointing to individual monuments representing the five branches of the military. A smaller pentagon within the star will be the central point of the plaza and contain three flags; national, state, and POW. In front of the central pentagon will be a bronze statue of a young boy saluting a bronze Battle Cross statue situated on a small rocky hill. The floor of the pentagon-shaped design is constructed with engraved brick pavers honoring individual veterans.
Construction of the Plaza was funded through donations, sponsors, paver sales, and volunteers. The Plaza was dedicated November 11, 2014 at a ceremony with more than 600 guests in attendance. Each year, the City of Schertz will hold a remembrance ceremony to honor our veterans.
The 2016 ceremony will be held Friday, November 11, 2016.
