On Veterans Day, what do you say to a veteran?

VETERANS DAY occurs only once a year, and it allows us to honor troops who have served in the military.

Veterans Day is a November national holiday dedicated to honoring those who have served in the military.

Veterans Day was formerly known as Armistice Day until 1954, when it was declared a public holiday by the United States Congress in 1938.

Armistice Day was first observed on November 11, 1919, before the United States Congress changed its name.

The first Armistice Day was established to celebrate the first anniversary of World War I’s end.

Veterans Day was observed on the fourth Monday of October from 1968 to 1975 as a result of the Uniform Holidays Bill. In 1975, it was moved back to November 11 as the annual date.

If you know or come across someone who has served in the military, wish them a “Happy Veterans Day.”

“Thank you for your service,” you can also say.

Veterans Day is frequently mistaken with Memorial Day.

Memorial Day is observed on the final Monday in May each year to honor those who have served and died while serving in the military.

Veterans Day is intended to celebrate all veterans, living or dead, who have served in the military.

Other countries, in addition to the United States, mark their own version of Veterans Day to honor their own troops.

Remembrance Day is observed in Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, Barbados, and other Commonwealth countries.

The majority of the worldwide parallels of Veterans Day and Remembrance Day have comparable customs, such as honoring military during November.

Every year on Veterans Day, at 11 a.m., a moment of silence lasting two or more minutes is observed.
