Veterans Day and Memorial Day Both Honor Those Who've Served
Here's how they differ
Both Veterans Day and Memorial Day honor the U.S. military community, but the two holidays serve different purposes — and their origins are rooted in two different wars.
Veterans Day was originally called Armistice Day
Celebrated every November, Veterans Day honors all who have served in the U.S. military.
The federal holiday is observed on Nov. 11, the day World War I ended in 1918.
