Memorial Day

D1X970 National World War II Memorial, Washington, DC USA

The U.S. Embassy in Rabat and the U.S. Consulate in Casablanca are closed on Monday, May 31 in observance of Memorial Day. On this day Americans honor those who gave their lives in service to their country.
The holiday is observed on the last Monday of May, as weather is turning warm and most schools and universities are adjourning for the summer, establishing Memorial Day weekend as the unofficial beginning of summer.
