On Thursday, August 12, 2021 at 9:30 a.m., the District Court of Guam will proudly host a special Naturalization Ceremony.
We will have a Keynote Speaker for this ceremony: Colonel Ryan A. Hendricks, Staff Judge Advocate for the 36th Wing,
Anderson Air Force, Base, Guam. Purple Heart Day is celebrated on August 7 and is a day of remembrance
of the men and women who bravely represented our country and were wounded or killed while serving.
These people are decorated with a Purple Heart in the name of the President, and this day is for
remembering them and their sacrifice. Some states, counties, and cities pause in recognition,
as do some sports and entertainment entities. Military and veteran organizations also hold meetings
for remembrance. Locally, Governor Lou Leon Guerrero has signed a proclamation designating the
month of August as Purple Heart Month.

The Naturalization Ceremony will take place inside the courthouse, with social distancing guidelines implemented,
where the soon-to-be citizens will soon take their oath to bear faith and allegiance to our great nation.
This is a momentous occasion as the court welcomes 24 new citizens. Chief Judge Tydingco-Gatewood states: “I am excited to be
joined by Colonel Hendricks once again to welcome our newest citizens and wish them luck on their new American journey.”
