Montgomery County Holidays: Veterans Day

Event details

  • November 10, 2017
  • All Day

Veterans Day, formerly known as Armistice Day, is observed annually on November 11. From 1971 until 1977, it was observed on the fourth Monday in October, but in 1978 it was restored to the original date of November 11. The first Armistice Day was proclaimed on November 11, 1919 to mark the signing of the armistice on November 11, 1918 that ended World War I. The name of the holiday was changed officially to Veterans Day when President Dwight Eisenhower signed an act of Congress “to honor veterans on the eleventh day of November of each year a day dedicated to world peace.”

Montgomery County government will observe this holiday.
