Every year, on Nov. 11, the nation honors members of the United States armed forces who have served our country and defended our freedoms. This year, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) host 23 Veterans Day-themed naturalization ceremonies across the country, welcoming more than 1,600 veterans, service members, and military spouses as America’s newest citizens. 

USCIS has served current and former military members worldwide processing for military members, as well as specialized customer service with a dedicated phone line (877-CIS-4MIL) and email support. Since Oct. 1, 2001, USCIS has naturalized more than 125,000 members of the military, with more than 11,300 of those service members becoming citizens during USCIS naturalization ceremonies in over 35 foreign countries.

Veterans Day activities this year will feature a special naturalization ceremony at Patriot’s Point Naval and Maritime Museum in South Carolina on Nov. 13, among other special ceremonies.
