Naturalization Ceremony at Arlington Cemetery Video


This government video shows what happens at a naturalization ceremony by interviewing public officials, new citizens, and their family and friends. The ceremony portrayed in this video is unsual in some ways, because it took place in historic of Arlington National Cemetary. However, ceremonies such as this one take place on a regular basis across the country. They are the culmination of the long process of becoming a U.S. citizen.

How does one become a U.S. citizen? What does it mean to be a citizen? What are some of the rights and responsibilities associated with citizenship?
