Veterans Day is spelled as it is for a very specific reason. The apostrophe plus S here, which would be the little curly mark between the “N” and the “S,” would denote possession. Veterans Day is not a day that belongs to Veterans or is owned by Veterans in any capacity. It is a day for everyone, regardless of if they’ve served or not, to reflect on the sacrifices of people who have served. The day may be dedicated to Veterans, but Veterans do not own it. We owe EVERYTHING to our Veterans. Please try and get involved with any Veteran group and show your respect.
