Does anyone other than government employees get off for Veterans Day?

The commercial world is too busy to take a day off

I'm surprised that school isn't out anymore.

I am a state employee and enjoyed my day off AND even visited two veterans just to tell them thank you.

We didn't get the day off, but our NJROTC and the band students put on an outstanding Veteran's Day Program for us today. All of us in the faculty who are vets were honored as well. As far as student body it was limited to Juniors and Seniors. They were very reverent and respectful. That part was as inspiring as the program itself. We have a very supportive principal as well. It WAS a good day.

Thank you for doing that. Even though they have their own day, I feel that they are often forgotten.

I think that was an excellent thing to do. Our students need this type of exposure to make them appreciate those that served. I would also hope that some of them were moved to consider joining the military.

Thank you sir for your service to our country.

I am now retired. When I did work, of course, we got Veterans Day off. I am retired from USAA so we do love those military people.
