On this holiday Americans honor our military veterans. Originally Armistice Day, it celebrated the end of World War One ... on the eleventh hour, the eleventh day, of the eleventh month. The United States had 18.2 million living veterans as of 2018 ... 9 percent of them, women. 7 million veterans served during the Vietnam War ... three million in support of the War on Terrorism. Most stores are open today ... many having sales. There is no regular postal delivery ... and federal, state, and local offices are closed.
