Wondering if the mail will be delivered on Veterans Day? Waiting to receive something super important like a past-due paycheck or a birthday card from your mother-in-law? Or maybe you like browsing through your local pennysaver magazine and are waiting anxiously for the next issue of ads. Whatever the reason, you’re curious to find out if the mail will be delivered on this day dedicated to the men and women of the American armed forces.
Veterans Day was originally established on November 11, 1919, on the one year anniversary of the first World War. However, it wasn’t until 1938 when this day was designated a national holiday. And since the United States Postal Services is a government agency, they’re also set to honor this day on November 11th by not delivering any mail. So, to answer the question…
Is There Mail Delivered On Veterans Day?
