Memorial Day gives Americans the opportunity to remember and honor the men and women who died in service to the United States. This Memorial Day, USCIS pays tribute to the military personnel, both native- and foreign-born, who have given their lives for this country. 

Did you know that “Memorial Day” can be found in several places on the naturalization test? Prospective citizens may be asked to “Name two national U.S. holidays.” during the civics test. It is also one of the holidays that applicants may be asked to read or write as part of the English Test.
