U.S. Soldiers proud to become citizens

U.S. service members from all over Iraq take their seats before the naturalization ceremony April 12 at Al Faw Palace in Baghdad. During the ceremony, which was one of the largest overseas naturalization ceremonies to date, approximately 260 service members were granted U.S. citizenship. "That what's the beautiful part in this Army - the variety. I saw people from Africa, from South America, people from everywhere. That was really nice," said Sgt. Omar Ramirez, a native of Ecuador and a transportation coordinator with Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 168th Brigade Support Battalion, a Fort Sill, Okla., unit, attached to the 1st Sustainment Brigade, in support of Multi-National Division - Baghdad.
