Celebrating Veterans Day with Naturalization Ceremonies

Release Date: November 06, 2015

Each year, on Nov. 11, the nation honors past and present members of the United States armed forces for serving our country and defending our freedoms.

USCIS marks Veterans Day with naturalization ceremonies that highlight our agency’s commitment to bringing immigration services to members of our military and their families. This year, we will welcome more than 10,000 new citizens – including veterans, current service members and military spouses – in nearly 130 naturalization ceremonies between Nov. 7 and 13. A list of highlighted ceremonies is below.

We encourage you to share your ceremony experiences and photos via Twitter and other social media, using the hashtag #newUScitizen. You can also follow @USCIS on Twitter and Facebook.com/USCIS.
