Honors Our
Veterans Day was originally called "Armistice Day" on November 11, 1919 [1]. Armistice Day's purpose was to acknowledge the first anniversary of the end of World War I and honor the fallen soldiers of the war. Veterans Day became a national holiday after Congress passed a resolution in 1938.

In honor of our veterans, city, state and federal government buildings, including courts and post offices, are closed today. So are New York City public schools and many banks and library branches.


To all those who served our country, your dedication and commitment to protecting the lives of fellow Americans is truly honorable.

Thank You For Your Service!
