In observance of Veterans Day, USCIS held naturalization ceremonies around the country and even aboard an aircraft carrier for members of our Armed Forces. Because veterans play such an important role in our Department’s mission, Secretary Napolitano set a goal to employ 50,000 veterans at DHS by the end of 2012. We are proud that today to have reached that goal, more than a year ahead of schedule. Read more about these and other efforts to honor our Veterans and Military, click here.
