Did you know that you don’t need to be a citizen of the United States to serve in the Army? From dhs.org [3]:

161 U.S. Soldiers Naturalized in Baghdad



July 4, 2007 (Baghdad, Iraq) – During an Independence Day ceremony at Camp Victory, 161 soldiers became naturalized U.S. citizens.



Army Gen. David Petraeus said the troops being naturalized as U.S. citizens were most deserving: “When you enlisted into the Armed Forces you swore to support and defend a Constitution that did not yet fully apply to you. You chose to endure the same sacrifices as your fellow comrades in arms to preserve the freedom of a land that was not yet fully yours. You accepted that you might have to pay the ultimate price on behalf of a nation to which you did not fully belong. Now, you will officially become citizens of the United States, a country to which each of you has already borne true faith and allegiance in your hearts and your deeds.”

Absolutely incredible, I love America. Happy Independence Week everyone and have a great weekend.

Now onto our regularly scheduled programming…
