On Thursday, July 22, 2021, at 9:30 a.m., the District Court of Guam will proudly
host a special Liberation Day Naturalization Ceremony.

July 21, 2021 marked Guam’s 77th Liberation Day, the day United States military forces liberated the people of Guam from Japanese occupation during World War II.

The keynote speaker for this special occasion is Assistant United States Federal Public Defender, Leilani Lujan.

The naturalization ceremony will take place inside the courthouse, with social distancing guidelines implemented, where the soon-to-be citizens, who hail from Cambodia, Iran, Philippines, South Korea, and Uzbekistan will take their oath to bear faith and allegiance to our great nation.

This is a momentous event as the court welcomes 24 new citizens.

Chief Judge Tydingco-Gatewood states: “As we welcome our newest citizens this
week, we also celebrate the liberation of our island while remembering the men and
women who fought for our freedom and our ancestors who have gone before us.”
