Largest Number of Military Naturalizations since the Korean War

Largest Number of Military Naturalizations since the Korean War

military naturalizationThe U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) reported today that in Fiscal Year (FY) 2010, the agency has naturalized over 11,000 U.S. military service members in military duty stations throughout the U.S. and abroad. That is the largest number of military naturalizations in any year since the Korean War.

The number of military naturalizations is increasing due to the USCIS’ outreach to eligible military service members and their dependents.  For example, the USCIS has hired Military Liaison Officers (MLO’s) at USCIS field offices across the country and the MLO’s are sent to military duty stations abroad to conduct educational seminars and other outreach programs to educate service members about naturalization and family-based immigration services.

We at Pappas & Associates, P.A. are happy to learn that more of our foreign born military servicemen and women who put their lives at risk for their adopted country by serving in our military, are increasingly becoming U.S. citizens.
