MISAWA AIR BASE, Japan – U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer Joe Ardon, Navy Air Facility Misawa Navy Supply site director, hugs his wife Jessela Ardon as she comes from the interview room one step closer to her U.S. citizenship here Nov. 10. After passing their interview, prospective U.S. citizens must receive the oath of allegiance during a citizenship ceremony to become full U.S. citizens.
