Approximately 31 active-duty service members will take the Oath of Allegiance and become the newest U.S. citizens during a special overseas military naturalization ceremony on January 13, 2005, in Seoul, South Korea, at Yongson Military Base. The ceremony in Seoul is a continuation of the implementation of overseas military naturalization ceremonies conducted by the United States Federal Government, the first of which took place in Afghanistan, Iraq and Seoul in October of 2004.

At the conclusion of the naturalization ceremony, the new citizens will be unfurling and presenting the United States flag “Old Glory”. “Old Glory” has flown over the hallowed ground of Normandy, Pearl Harbor, Midway Island, Iwo Jima, Oklahoma City, Ground Zero (NYC), Shanksville, PA, the Pentagon and Arlington National Cemetery. After the Seoul naturalization ceremony, the next stop for this historic flag is the planned presidential inauguration ceremony scheduled for January 20, 2005 in Washington D.C.

“I am tremendously proud to welcome as new citizens men and women who have pledged to protect America’s freedom,” said Director of USCIS Eduardo Aguirre. “Thousands of immigrant troops are making extraordinary sacrifices for America. There is no more fitting way for a grateful nation to demonstrate its appreciation than through granting qualified service members the privilege of U.S. citizenship as quickly as possible, to carry out their dream of becoming Americans.”
