Honoring Our US Veterans
Veterans Day celebrates and honors all who have served in the US military. The Federal holiday is observed on Nov. 11 each year.
The origins of Veterans Day come from the end of World War I. On Nov. 11, 1918, an armistice between the U.S.-led Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. Congress officially recognized the day as a Federal holiday with a resolution passed on June 4, 1926.
