SHREVEPORT, LA - Veteran's Day falls on a Saturday this year and it will be a great day to honor our veterans and military personnel.

What Day Will Be the Federal Holiday?

When is the federal holiday this year? Well the federal rule is if November 11 happens on a Sunday, then the following Monday is the Federal holiday. If November 11 falls on a Saturday like it does this year, then the government may designate either Saturday or Friday. The 2023 federal observation date is Friday, November 10, 2023.
