    U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Alexander Okenwa, a motor vehicle operator with Headquarters Squadron Marine Air Control Squadron 4, Marine Air Control Group 18, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, is presented his Certificate of Naturalization by Col. Jeffrey L. Hammond, the camp commander of Camps Foster and Lester and commanding officer of Headquarters and Support Battalion, Marine Corps Installations Pacific, and Sgt. Maj. Brian R. Drechsler, the sergeant major of H&S Battalion, MCIPAC, during a naturalization ceremony hosted at the Chapel on Camp Foster, Okinawa, Japan, Dec. 7, 2021. A total of six Marines, one Sailor, and four Status of Forces Agreement personnel from 10 countries swore the oath of allegiance and received their naturalization certificates to become U.S. citizens. Naturalization is the process by which U.S. citizenship is granted to a foreign citizen after he or she fulfills the requirements to become a citizen established by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965.
