Veterans Day extra special for new U.S. citizens


Veterans Day 2021 will be extra special for 12 military members who will celebrate it as U.S. citizens for the first time. The service members were from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps, hailing from 10 different countries.

One of the new citizens said becoming a citizen and serving in the military is about giving back and setting a good example. “Becoming a citizen means so much to me because it puts me in a position to give back to the country. I decided to join the Army to advance in my career and to serve this great country. Also, to be a better example to my daughter to let her know she can be anything as long as she puts her mind to it since I joined at a later age.”
