    Congratulations
    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    Congrats, and Welcome to our Mess. How long did the process take? I have heard it is quite an ordeal.

    CONGRATULATIONS!

    You now know more about the history of the United States than 7/8 of the population that was born here.

    Congratulations, our daughter in law became a citizen last year and in her swearing in ceremony the judge told everyone that 75% of graduating seniors in america could not pass the citizenship test. Congratulations again remember the last 4 letters in American a I CAN. I can vote, i can get a cpl, i can serve, and I can do anything.

    Congrats on becoming a legal citizen. I have 2 employees going through the process, so I'm glad to see at least 3 who are doing it right.

    If you don't mind my asking, how difficult was it and how long did it take you?

    Congrats.

    Do yourself a huge favor. Take a look at your certificate. If it is anything like the ones
    I've seen it says it is against the law to copy it or photograph it. So, make a record of the
    number on the certificate, make a note of the date of your naturalization, make a note of the court this
    happened in and the name of the judge who swore you. Put that info in a safe place separate from
    your certificate. Store it in the cloud, on a couple of different drives; but be sure you can recover that
    important information.

    Get yourself a safe deposit box at a bank and keep the original naturalization certificate in there.

    I just verified with my wife what I thought I remembered. She had to produce her naturalization
    certificate when she applied to receive her social security. Don't ask me why, I've no clue.
    Her passport wasn't good enough for them. So, keep it in a very very safe place because
    one day you will need it again unless "they" change the rules.

    Meanwhile--- APPLY FOR A US PASSPORT. Once you have a passport you won't need that naturalization
    certificate again except maybe when applying for Social Security.

    That, and your marriage certificate are hardly
    ever needed but when they are needed, you really need them.

    The naturalization certificate is one of those things that are just really
    hard to replace. A lost passport is much easier to deal with.

    And btw, keep your birth certificate or whatever document you have of your birth outside the US in a safe place too.

    You will need it when you get old enough to apply for Social Security, even though they already obtained that when they gave you a number. (Don't ask, it doesn't have to make sense, it is just what they do.)

    Congratulations and welcome! Very glad to have you with us.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
