So here in Canada it's called Remembrance Day not Veterans Day but it serves the same purpose - remembering those who have fought/are currently fighting for our freedom. So my question is - what kind of things are done in the States to "celebrate" the day? Here the only businesses that are open are retail type ones and essential services (hospitals, cops, firemen, those types) but most if not all offices/doctors offices/service companies and other types of companies are closed so that the employees can go to services and such. Is it that way in the States?
Where I live (a town of about 2000) there is a service in the local civic centre and it's usually packed in there with people standing and such because there are no more seats. I would say that about 400 to 500 people attend. It's a big thing here and I'm just curious if it's as big of a thing in the States or if it's more the current millitary personnel and those associated with them that think the day is special.
