Veterans Day Observed Monday, Nov. 12

What's open and what's closed for Veterans Day. The traditional observance is Sunday, but the national holiday will be Monday.

Americans will pause to remember those who have fought for our country on Nov. 12, a day later than the traditional Veterans Day.

The national ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery takes place at 11 a.m. on Sunday as Nov. 11 is the traditional Veterans Day (since Nov. 11 is a Sunday, Nov. 12 will be bank and national holiday). If you are planning to attend, organizers say to arrive early to get through security.
