Possible Veteran's Day trip?

Can't see hours posted for Veteran's Day yet. Any guesses when it might come out?

Also, are the Xmas things up at that time, I would have thought not, but I "thought" I saw that it was somewhere on the board.

Where can I see the current explanation for early entry so I can plan?

I'll tackle the Christmas part of the question. The holiday season officially begins on 11/12 this year. That's the date by which all of the seasonal entertainment will definitely be up and running (the snow on Main Street, the nighttime lighting of the Winter Castle in icicle lights, the Reindeer Round-Up being open, the holiday fireworks, the holiday parade, Santa posing for photos, etc.).

However, It's a Small World Holiday usually "soft opens" a couple of days before the season begins, so I expect that it will be open sometime over Veterans Day weekend. It's possible that the holiday parade will begin a couple of days early too (it usually tapes for TV in early November and then officially begins running for the season on the official opening day). All of the other things I mentioned should start on 11/12 (unless, for some reason, Disney can get them running early).

As for the decorations themselves - because the holiday decorations are so extensive, the process of setting them up starts even before Halloween rolls around, to be sure everything is ready by 11/12. By Veterans Day, all of the decorations will be in place in both parks (maybe not the 3 hotels yet, though).
