Yokosuka U.S. Naval Base, Japan-Many people are serving in the United States military, but it is a method for Servicemembers to earn a chance to gain United States Citizenship. Because of their service, many people in the United States Military are able to fast track their applications. After passing the United States Citizenship test, they can be privileged to earn their United States Citizenship.
Recently 72 people were sworn in as United States Citizens, last Friday in a ceremony at the United States Naval Base at Yokosuka. And, due to the passage of a law the youngest new citizen was only 7 years old.
Martin Miles Ulsano is the son of United States Servicemember Petty Officer 2nd Class Casar Ulsano. Because of the provisions in the 2008 Defense Authorization Act, many young dependants are able to gain citizenship who are dependants of US Servicemembers.
?Martin is an American, has been raised with American culture and values his whole life,? said his father, Caesar. But the family was pleased to make it official for their son. Petty Officer Ulsano became a citizen in 2004, and has been a proud citizen ever since.
