New citizens to be naturalized during Flag Day ceremony

WASHINGTON (AP) - Today is Flag Day, and the National Museum of American History is celebrating by hosting a citizenship naturalization ceremony for 20 people.

Appropriately, the late-morning ceremony will be held in the museum's Flag Hall, a space in front of the gallery that holds the American flag that inspired "The Star-Spangled Banner."

The 20 participants taking part in the ceremony are from 12 countries, and they'll take an oath of allegiance to the United States, the conclusion of the process to become a naturalized U-S citizen.
