PHOENIX - A half-dozen members of the U.S. military or their family members are set to become U.S. citizens during a ceremony at the Arizona Capitol.
Thursday's ceremony in the House of Representatives' chamber will include members of the Air Force, Marines and Navy and the mother of a member of the Civil Air Patrol's honor guard.
The ceremony has been held for the past three years while the Legislature is in session.
House Speaker Andy Tobin and Senate President Andy Biggs will host the ceremony.
Those becoming citizens come from Armenia, Canada, Mexico, Trinidad Tobago and the Philippines.
