Veterans Day – School Observance Required
Does your school have its Veterans Day observance planned? Schools are required to conduct educational programs and activities for Veterans Day. All government buildings, businesses and citizens of the state of Missouri are encouraged to display the POW/MIA flag. Additionally, this is a day of celebration to honor our nation's veterans, not a day of mourning. Therefore, the United States flag is flown at full staff.

Veterans Day – Office Closed
Veterans Day will be observed on Friday, Nov. 10, and our office will be closed.

Go to the United States Department of Labor website to register your event.
