Veterans Day is a federal holiday and a state holiday in all states with the exception of Wisconsin.

The federal holiday is observed on November 12th or the weekday closest to November 12th, if November 12th falls on a weekend.

In most states, it is observed on the weekday nearest to November 11th. 

The holiday honours all veterans of the United States armed forces.

A traditional observation is a moment of silence at 11 AM remembering those who fought for peace.
