Corpus Christi, Texas — Female Veterans were honored at a special ceremony held at the Sherrill Park Veterans Memorial on Saturday.

Women’s Veterans Day was June 12th, set aside to bring awareness to women in the army.

“It’s the day the United States recognized women in the military,” says Navy NCO Christie Johnson. “There were many women who came before us, were not recognized for their service, or were treated as members of the army.”

Women’s Veterans Day is not intended to separate men from women. Instead, its purpose is to raise awareness of female veterans who have served and are still listed as active.
