Veterans Day marks the annual celebration in the United States honoring military veterans. For some little history about the Veterans Day, November 11 is Veterans Day and it is a national holiday. Veteran’s Day is also known as “Remembrance Day” or “Armistice Day” in some other areas in the world. This is to commemorate the end of World War 1 and honoring soldiers to this day.
