KOSCIUSKO — Although Veterans Day is on a Sunday this year, the federal holiday is Monday, Nov. 12. Warsaw City offices will be closed in observance of Veterans Day. Post Offices will not be open and there will be no mail delivery Monday.
Veterans Day is an official holiday observed on Nov. 11 to honor military veterans. Veterans Day is different than Memorial Day, a U.S. public holiday observed in May to honor those who died while in military service. Armed Forces Day, also observed in May, honors those currently serving in the U.S. military.
At 11 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 11, the Kosciusko County Courthouse joined in a tolling of bells across the country to honor those who served in The Great War. The annual Veterans Day Program sponsored by American Legion Post 49 and VFW Post 1126 took place at the Center Lake Pavilion in Warsaw.
Many businesses offer special discounts for veterans.
