I believe that this is an excellent way to show commitment to our nation—indeed, I think that service in the military should be a requirement for US citizenship, for those able to serve.br /br /Well, on 12 Nov, Karl Eikenberry, US ambassador to Afghanistan, helped complete the citizenship journey for more than 120 US service members in a ceremony, by presenting them with certificates of naturalization.
