Because adding as s onto the end of a word makes it plural, adding an 's makes it possessive plural.
Like "jeancluadia's answers" you are the noun so you get a possessive plural, whereas answers is just plural.
Does that make any sense?
Not a stupid question. The 's' is because it's not just one veteran, it's plural, but it's also possessive, so the apostrophe goes after the s. If it was possessive , but belonged to only one veteran, it would go before the s.
It does make sense but if you're talking about multiple vets wouldn't it be veterans' day or could it be both veteran's and veterans' day? when I see it everywhere, no one is adding the apostrophe. Anyway, thanks!
