Veterans Day is an official U.S. holiday which honors men and women who have served in the armed forces during all wars.  It is a federal holiday that is observed each year in the U.S on Nov. 11. Veterans Day is the anniversary of the signing of the armistice, which ended World War I hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918.
