In observance of Veterans Day, USCIS will be holding special Veterans Day naturalization ceremonies across the country for Veterans, service members and military spouses. From November 7th through the 13th, more than 10,000 new citizens in nearly 130 naturalization ceremonies across the country and around the world will take the Oath of Allegiance.
USCIS Director León Rodríguez stated, “On Veterans Day, we salute the men and women who have so courageously served our country and defended the freedoms that it was built upon. Among our brave veterans are thousands of immigrants, many of whom vowed to defend their new home even before they were citizens,” He also said, “It is because of their extraordinary sacrifices, and those of their families, that we can enjoy the rights and liberties of living in this great country.”
USCIS is asking these new citizens and their families to share their naturalization ceremonies experiences through Twitter and other social media using the hashtag #newUScitizen.
