GoCertify Honors Fallen Servicemembers on Memorial Day

The GoCertify offices are closed today, May 28, in observance of the U.S. holiday Memorial Day. But we didn't just walk away and leave you with nothing until Tuesday.

Gettysburg ELP MemorialToday is Memorial Day here in the United States. It’s a federal holiday, so the GoCertify home office is 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 members, 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?
