Veterans Day

On this Veterans Day, you may be wondering if the correct spelling is "Veterans Day," or "Veteran's Day," or maybe even "Veterans' Day."  This FAQ from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs will answer that question for you, and many others:


It explains why some schools close and others don't, why Veterans Day doesn't always fall on a Monday like most Federal holidays, and why poppies are more closely associated with Memorial Day than Veterans Day.  It even provides links to posters and Teacher's Guides that can be downloaded.  As the site says, "Veterans Day is largely intended to thank LIVING veterans for their service."  So, many thanks to all who served and all who are serving now!
