Veterans Day

Holiday honors service members

Veterans Day honors those who have served in the American armed forces.

This Veterans Day marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, the milestone that established Nov. 11 as the day set aside to honor those who have served in the American armed forces.

The holiday is especially significant to the Postal Service, one of the nation’s largest employers of veterans. The organization has more than 100,000 current or former service members in its workforce.

This year, USPS is honoring employees who are veterans with special badges and lanyards.

The Postal Service also honors veterans and military members through its stamp program. In special recognition of the end of the Great War, USPS recently issued the World War I: Turning the Tide stamp, which pays tribute to the United States’ role in ending the global conflict.
