USCIS Naturalizes Six Sailors onboard U.S.S. Blue Ridge in South Korea

Six sailors assigned to the USS Blue Ridge, the flagship for the U.S. Navy’s 7th Fleet, home-based at Yokosuka, Japan, became citizens of the United States on March 8, 2010, while the ship was in South Korea for a military training exercise.

The six new U.S. citizens hailed from Canada, China, Germany, Mexico, and the Philippines. They join more than 55,000 other service members who, since September 2001, have become naturalized citizens through their service in the U.S. armed forces.
