Veteran's Day this year is on November 11, 2009. Thanksgiving follows shortly after on November 26, 2009.
Veterans Day ceremonies included the traditional laying of the wreath before the Tomb of the Unknowns, the rededication of the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Intrepid, and thousands of parades and commemorative observances in the United States and around the world.

The armed forces of the United States are regularly honored all the time. They even have two holidays recognized for their service to the country. The first holiday is Memorial Day, which takes place in the beginning of the summer. The second holiday is today,Veterans Day, in the beginning of the fall. Memorial Day is a generic celebration of those who died in service. But as for Veterans Day, it was originally created to honor a specific day in U.S. and world history.
