Veterans Day: 11 November
Veterans Day (originally known as Armistice Day) is a federal holiday in the United States observed annually on November 11, for honouring military veterans, that is, persons who have served in the United States Armed Forces (and were discharged under conditions other than dishonourable). It coincides with other holidays including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day which are celebrated in other countries that 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. At the urging of major U.S. veteran organizations, Armistice Day was renamed Veterans Day in 1954.
Happy Veterans Day!
