The Veterans Memorial Plaza located at 512 Schertz Parkway in Schertz is a monument to millions who have served in uniform over the last 238 years. The one-acre site has trees, trails, greenery and chimes surrounding the plaza – 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 is the central point of the plaza and contains three flagpoles for the U.S., Texas and POW/MIA flags.
It started out as the dream of a few and blossomed into a community-driven effort. Located on land donated by the City of Schertz and financed with $300,000 in individual, business and civic contributions, the plaza today is a quiet place to Remember and Honor.
