February 2006
Soldiers;Feb2006, Vol. 61 Issue 2, p46
The article deals with the naturalization of aliens and noncitizens serving on active duty in the U.S. armed forces. The Expedited Naturalization Executive Order allows active-duty personnel serving on or after September 11, 2001 to immediately filed for citizenship. Every military installation has a designated point of contact to handle military naturalization applicants. Since U.S. President George W. Bush signed the order, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has naturalized nearly 20,000 service members.
