Explain why is it important that veteran's day observed on november 11, not on a monday or friday for a long weekend as some holiday

Report as

A cease-fire agreement with Germany at Rethondes, France on November 11, 1918, brought World War I to a close. This day November 11 was commemorated as Armistice Day in the United States, Great Britain, and France. After World War II, the holiday was recognized as a day of tribute to veterans of both world wars. Beginning in 1954, the United States designated November 11 as Veterans Day to honor veterans of all U.S. wars.
