Tuesday November 11th is Veterans Day, an official United States holiday that honors people who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. It is a federal holiday that is observed on November 11 each year. It coincides with other holidays such as Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, which are celebrated in other parts of the world and also mark the anniversary of the end of World War I.
Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect.
Veterans Day is not to be confused with Memorial Day; Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, while Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving.
As we approach Veteran’s Day please remember to thank those you know and meet in your travels who have served our country.
