Veterans Day History

Veterans Day was originally known as Armistice Day. It was introduced as such by President Woodrow Wilson in 1919, but it was renamed in 1954. It is distinct from Memorial Day, which is a United States public holiday that is celebrated in May. Veterans Day celebrates the service of all United States military veterans, while Memorial Day honors those who have died while engaged in military service.

There is another military holiday, Armed Forces Day, which is a United States remembrance that also occurs in May. Armed Forces Day specifically honors those who are currently serving in the U.S. military. On Veterans Day, non-essential federal government offices are closed. There is no mail is delivered, and all federal workers are paid for the holiday. Any federal workers who are required to work on the holiday will receive holiday pay for that day in addition to their wages.
