U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Seattle District swore in approximately 15 new U.S. citizens Thursday, during a naturalization ceremony at JBLM. The new citizens are active duty service members. This ceremony honors Veterans Day.
The ceremony took place at 1 p.m., at the Club on McChord Field. The JBLM Joint Service Honor Guard presented the colors. The keynote speaker for the ceremony was Col. Patrick M. O’Sullivan, Deputy Joint Base Garrison Commander.
