Embassy Djibouti hosts U.S. naturalization ceremony

Embassy Djibouti hosted a naturalization ceremony, March 10. The ceremony, which was a unique occurrence for an overseas mission, saw 15 U.S. Army soldiers from Task Force Wolfhound (1st Battalion, 69th Infantry Regiment) assigned to Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, and representing the countries of Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Haiti, Jamaica, Mali, Philippines, Saint Lucia, Senegal, and Spain become American citizens. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services conducted the ceremony, while Embassy Djibouti welcomed 135 of their colleagues and arranged for the families of the soldiers to view the ceremony virtually. Ambassador Jonathan Pratt (back row, center) and Combined Joint Task Force—Horn of Africa Commanding General Maj. Gen. Jami Shawley (front row, center) also attended the event.
