Veterans Day 2019 will be on Monday, November 11th, 2019. As a federal holiday Veterans Day is typically observed on November 11th every year. However, if it occurs on a Sunday then the following Monday is designated as the Federal holiday, and if it occurs on a Saturday then either Saturday or Friday may be designated.
In times when the observance falls on a Sunday, the following Monday is designated as the Federal holiday. For years when the 11th is on a Saturday, either Friday or Saturday may be designated as the Federal recognition of Veterans Day.
When the Federal holiday and November 11th dates are different, Veterans Day activities may take place on both days; many activities are often scheduled the weekend leading up to Veterans Day even during years when both dates match.
2018 marked the Centennial Commemoration of the end of World War I on November 11, 1918. The theme for the 2018 Veterans Day Poster is: “The War to End All Wars” and features a poppy and barbed wire.
