Washington (CNN) - More than two dozen active duty service members will celebrate their Fourth of July with a very patriotic event.
Twenty-five members of the U.S. Army, Marine Corps, and Air Force will be sworn in as citizens in the East Room of the White House Wednesday. President Obama will make remarks and Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano will deliver the oath of allegiance.
As a disabled vet, I am thrilled for these members of our elite Armed Forces. The fact is their volunteering as the defenders of our great country, already makes them Americans. Thank You Mr. Presidrnt for welcoming them to our Country. God Bless America and happy birthday.
In a typical Obama marketing strategy, he's holding the ceremony on Independence Day. Obama in my opinion is the best marketing machine we've ever witnessed.
Thank God we live in a country that people WANT to come to,willing to face all kinds of adversity to get HERE!!! Something must be right for the USA to be the land that freedom still rings it alluring harmony heard throughout the world.....Individuals from every land have build this nation and that history continues today at the white house!!!!
We need strict immigration. Stop for a while, even to foreign doctors, IT too. We need to have more PAs to see pts.
wait a minute I thought President Obama was supposed to be in PARIS today?? at least that is what the right wing blogosphere was saying. Too bad they can tell flat out lies about the POTUS without even saying they are sorry about it. Anyway congrads to our new citizens and thank you for the service to our nation.
I never understood the policy of having people who are not American citizens sworn into military service...I just don't think its appropriate. It's a path of infiltration by our enemies.
