Guam - It was a defining morning for 55 men and women who celebrate their first day as U.S. citizens today.

With their flags in hand, they recited the Oath of Allegiance marking their naturalization as Americans.

Supreme Court of Guam Chief Justice Robert Torres said, "I want to congratulate you on your naturalization and taking the oath of allegiance in the United States of America - the greatest country in the world. All of you have your own stories on why you have chosen to call this country and this island your new home," he said.

A total of 600 men and women are naturalized every year on Guam.

Today's naturalized citizens represent Japan, the People's Republic of China, Taiwan, the Philippines, South Korea, and Vietnam.
