We Would Like to Thank All of The Veterans!
In America, Veterans Day falls on November 11th. This day is the anniversary of the signing of the armistice, which ended the World War I hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918. Veterans are thanked for their services to the United States on Veterans Day.
Veterans Day is intended to honor and thank all military personnel who served the United States in all wars, especially living veterans. It is marked by parades and church services and in many places the American flag is hung at half mast. A period of silence lasting 2 minutes may be held at 11am. Some schools are closed on Veterans Day, while others do not close, but choose to mark the occasion with special assemblies or other activities.
Veterans Day is officially observed on November 11th. However, if it falls on a week day, many communities hold their celebrations on the weekend closest to this date. This is to enable more people to attend and participate in the events. Federal Government offices are closed on November 11th. If Veterans Day falls on a Saturday, they are closed on Friday November 10th. If Veterans Day falls on a Sunday, they are closed on Monday November 12th. State and local governments, schools and non-governmental businesses are not required to close and may decide to remain open or closed. Public transit systems may follow a regular or holiday schedule. We would like to take this time to Thank all Veterans for serving our country & protecting our freedom! Veterans Day 2014!
