Dates: Veterans Day 2018 in the United States of America is on Sunday, November 11 but will be observed: Monday, November 12

What’s the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day?

Veterans Day is not to be confused with Memorial Day, a U.S. public holiday in May; Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, while Memorial Day honors those who died while in military service.
