Veterans Day 2020, Thank you for your Service
Happy Veterans Day!
Thank you Veterans, for your Service!
Veterans Day (originally known as Armistice Day) is a federal holiday, observed annually on November 11, for honoring military veterans, which are, persons who have served in the United States Armed Forces (that were discharged under conditions other than dishonorable).
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 1. 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.
Veterans Day is distinct from Memoria Day, a U.S. public holiday in May. Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, while Memorial Day honors those who had died while in military service.
Another military holiday that also occurs in May, Armed Forces Day honors those currently serving in the U.S. military. Additionally, Women Armed Forces day, is recognized by a growing number of U.S. states that specifically honors women who have served in the U.S. military.
