WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Two Fort Drum soldiers were invited to Washington this Fourth of July to be sworn in as citizens, according to the White House.
About 25 military members became United States citizens at the White House Wednesday. Among those are two Fort Drum soldiers, Silvano Carcomo, a line medic with the 3rd Brigade Combat Team from Honduras, and Faye Ngirchomlei, an automated logistic specialist with the 511 Military Police Company from Palau.
With President Barack Obama on hand, the military members were sworn in by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
The President said the ceremony was the perfect way to celebrate America's birthday and used part of his speech to push for immigration reform.
