This is a document that is a Soldiers Guide to Citizenship. The Department of Defense has partnered with US Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) to assist non-citizen military personnel with their citizenship applications. The goal is to streamline and expedite the handling of their applications. The Department of the Army has directed its Battalion (BN) and Brigade Combat Team (BCT) S-1s, Military Personnel Divisions (MPD), and Military Personnel Offices (MILPO) to assist Soldiers with their applications for citizenship and to coordinate with the US Army Human Resources Command (USAHRC) as necessary to facilitate the process. This guide explains the procedures for Soldiers to apply for citizenship under the military facilitated program and the responsibilities of the BN or BCT S-1s, MPDs, and MILPOs to assist them. For additional information, Soldiers should visit the CIS website at A Guide to Naturalization.
