Veterans’ Day has been declared an official public holiday by a law passed by the American Congress in 1938. This makes 11 November a federal holiday in the USA. For this reason, no non-essential government offices are functional on that day. For those government officials who must work, a compensatory holiday pay, in addition to their wages is given. Educational institutes cease to work for a day and government functions, such as mails pause their jobs for one day. Even the election day does not hold such a great honor as does the Veterans’ Day.
