You will not find a more deserving group of people in the world who deserve their citizenship today than this group.”Vice Adm. Gerald R. Beaman, commander, U.S. 3rd fleet, and U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa, served as the keynote speakers for the ceremony.Beaman commended all of the new citizens for their service and their commitment to their new country.“Each person here has an incredible story to tell and to share about their journey, and I ask that they do share it with their fellow service members,” said Beaman. “Their examples serve to reinvigorate our own feelings of pride, service, patriotism, and reinforces our knowledge that we live in the greatest country in the world.”[mappress]Source: navy, November 11, 2011 View post tag: Navy View post tag: Midway View post tag: Service View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Aboardlast_img read more
