Veteran’s Day is celebrated every year on November 11 regardless of what day of the week if falls, which means this year it will be celebrated on Wednesday. This is also when the Veterans Day National Ceremony will be held, though local communities often choose to hold events or parades on the weekend either before or after the holiday itself. The day — November 11 — marks the end of World War I, and was originally known in the United States as Armistice Day. This changed in 1954, when it became officially known as Veterans Day.

Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause.
— Abraham Lincoln
