On Nov. 11, we celebrate Veterans Day to honor past and present members of the United States armed forces for their dedication to serving our country and defending our freedoms. 

USCIS marks this occasion each year 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 3,000 new citizens in nearly 40 naturalization ceremonies between Nov. 7 and 14 in honor of Veterans Day. A list of highlighted ceremonies is below.

We welcome 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.
