What countries have Veterans' Day? USA?

I guess most countries don't have Veteran's Day, but actually it can be very good to have this Day, at least for the veterans.

Actually Veterans Day originally started as "Armistice day", honoring November 11, 1918, the day that World War I ended. It officially became a US holiday in 1926 and a national holiday in 1938. In 1954, Armistice Day became Veterans day to honor all veterans. Other countries have called it Remembrance Day.

That's my history lesson for the day
