Veterans Day is an annual American holiday honoring military veterans, a day to commemorate the sacrifices of members of the armed forces and of civilians in times of war, specifically since the First World War. Both a federal holiday and a state holiday in all states, it is usually observed on November 11.

It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on November 11, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.)

ASQ Baltimore salutes our veterans and our military, and thanks them for the service they have provided to our country.
