VETERANS
DAY




Veterans Day is an annual American holiday honoring
military veterans. A federal holiday, it is usually
observed on November 11. However, if it occurs on a
Sunday then the following Monday is designated for
holiday leave, and if it occurs Saturday then either
Saturday or Friday may be so designated. 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.)

The holiday is commonly printed as Veteran's Day or
Veterans' Day in calendars and advertisements. While
these spellings are grammatically acceptable, the
United States government has declared that the
attributive (no apostrophe) rather than the possessive
case is the official spelling.

NATIONAL
COALITION
FOR
HOMELESS
VETERANS




NCHV will end homelessness among veterans by
shaping public policy, educating the public,
and building the capacity of service providers."

The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans (NCHV)
— a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization governed by an
17-member board of directors — is the resource and
technical assistance center for a national network
of community-based service providers and local,
state and federal agencies that provide emergency
and supportive housing, food, health services, job
training and placement assistance, legal aid and
case management support for hundreds of thousands
of homeless veterans each year.

NCHV also serves as the primary liaison between the
nation’s care providers, Congress and the Executive
Branch agencies charged with helping them succeed
in their work. NCHV's advocacy has strengthened and
increased funding for virtually every federal
homeless veteran assistance program in existence
today.
