Happy Memorial Day from Your Friends at GoCertify

How much do you know about famous memorials of the United States and the world? Celebrate the U.S. observance of Memorial Day with another GoCertify holiday quiz!

Grants TombToday is Memorial Day here in the United States. It's a federal holiday, so the offices of GoCertify are closed until Tuesday. Memorial Day honors the American citizens, both men and women, who died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. It is spiritually akin to Veteran's Day (Nov. 11), which honors all Armed Forces veterans, including those who did not die while serving.


We'll return to our regular schedule of operations tomorrow. Until then, why not enjoy this Memorial Day-themed quiz about famous memorials in the world, courtesy of our friends at Certification Magazine?
