VIDEO: Army Veteran and Jamaican Immigrant Becomes a U.S. Citizen on Veterans Day

On Veterans day we pay respect to those who fight to defend America so we can keep our freedom.

Fox News captured a beautiful moment when Linval Lindsay, a legal Jamaican immigrant and veteran of the U.S. Army, finally became a naturalized U.S. citizen.

There is something truly special about doing it the right way.

DailyCaller reports  Earhardt mentioned that she had been drawn to Lindsay because she had noticed him wiping away tears as he swore allegiance to his new country.

“It has been very emotional for me today. I’ve been postponing this thing for longest time. I finally decided to do it. I’m so happy I did. It is so emotional,” Lindsay responded.

“Tell me your story,” Earhardt prompted.

“I was drafted more than 50 years ago. Served in, went up to Greenland. Went up to Greenland twice. I came back. The Army has been my, one of the best two years of my life, really,” Lindsay replied. “My mother cried, I’m so happy she cried. Today I’m happy.”

Earhardt asked one last question: “What does the flag mean to you, sir?”

“Oh, everything,” Lindsay said. “Everything.” He noted that he still loved Jamaica, but that he was proud to be an American.

“We’re both Americans,” Earhardt smiled. “God bless you.”
