Fareportal Brand OneTravel Shares Veteran’s Day Travel

New York, New York, Nov. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Americans will celebrate Veteran’s Day on Friday, November 10th this year, and Fareportal online travel agency brand OneTravel is offering some insight on where to travel to commemorate this significant day and honor those who have served.  The observance has an interesting past regarding both name, and date.  Originally created as Armistice Day just after the first World War, the name of the holiday was officially changed to Veteran’s Day in 1954. Later, to create three-day weekends for federal employees and encourage travel and tourism, in 1968 Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act. This moved observance of Veteran’s Day to the 4th Monday in October. Americans’ reaction to the date change were mixed, and in 1978 President Gerald Ford returned the observation of Veteran’s Day to November 11th. This year, the date falls on a Saturday, so Veteran’s Day is observed on the previous Friday.

According to an article published November 2nd on the OneTravel “Going Places” blogsite, ways to observe Veteran’s Day  in keeping with the spirit of the day could include visits to a number of parks, memorials or museums that honor veterans:

  • Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum — Mount Pleasant, South Carolina
  • Gettysburg National Military Park — Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
  • Navajo Nation Veterans Memorial Park — Window Rock, Arizona
  • National Veterans Art Museum — Chicago, Illinois
  • Liberty Memorial — Kansas City, Missouri
  • Vietnam Veterans Memorial — Washington, D.C.
  • Arlington National Cemetery — Arlington, Virginia
