My heartfelt congratulations!

I just saw a quick blurb on Fox News about 150 new Citizens taking their Oath of Allegiance today on Ellis Island, with hundreds more to do the same all around the country this special weekend.
What a glorious time to become a Citizen!
I wish them the best of luck and I hope they prosper in their new country.

That's awesome!

Y'know what really moves me, though, is seeing pictures or videos of military personnel taking their oaths of citizenship while in formation. Beautiful to see so many new Americans dedicating themselves to this kick-ass country!

Haven't seen those yet, but I'll damned sure search for them. Do you have any links, Sis?

But the one that really made me happy was this:

A big-assed group of personnel becoming U.S. citizens in Iraq on Election Day.

I always tear up watching those ceremonies. Makes me proud that those people would go through so headache, heartache, time, and money just to get something that I was born with.

That's what makes it so disgusting that people cut in line.
