(WHTM)– With Veteran’s Day just right around the corner on Saturday, Nov. 11, many are wondering if they will end up getting their mail.
According to the United States Postal Service, Veteran’s Day is considered a holiday which means that mail will not be delivered. However, since the holiday falls on a Saturday, the Friday before will be treated as a holiday for most USPS employees “for pay and leave purposes.”
There are only two more holidays remaining in the year that mail also won’t be delivered on. Those are Thanksgiving on Nov. 23 and Christmas on Dec. 25.
