Release Date

Each year, on Nov. 11, the nation honors members of the United States armed forces who have served our country and defended our freedoms.

USCIS celebrates 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 7,500 new citizens – including veterans, current service members and military spouses – in more than 40 naturalization ceremonies themed for Veterans Day. A list of highlighted ceremonies is below.

We encourage you to share your experiences and photos from naturalization ceremonies through social media, using the hashtag #newUScitizen. You can also follow us on Twitter (@uscis), YouTube (/uscis), Facebook (/uscis), Instagram (/uscis) and the USCIS blog The Beacon.
