Veterans Day is an official United States holiday that honors all people who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces and are known as veterans. Veterans Day coincides with Armistice Day and Remembrance Day in other parts of the world and marks the anniversary of the end of World War I. Veterans Day should not be confused with Memorial Day which is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.
