A special celebration in honor of women veterans was held Saturday, June 10, 2023, at Veterans Plaza — just ahead of Women Veterans Day.

A highlight of the ceremony was the unveiling of “Athena’s Prayer,” a bronze monument created by world-renowned artist James N. Muir and recently acquired by the City of Boerne in honor of women veterans. The monument depicts a female soldier just back from battle, helmet protecting her heart, as she gazes skyward.

“This is a wonderful addition to our Veterans Plaza,” Director of Special Project Paul Barwick said. “The statue pays tribute and recognizes the role women have played in our armed forces and is near and dear to many in our community.”
