GALLOWAY TWP. -

In celebration of law day, Atlantic County held its first ever naturalization ceremony.

Fifty people from 26 different countries gathered at the Richard Stockton College today to take the oath of citizenship.

While many of them have been in the country for some time, becoming an American citizen is a major moment in their life that they'll cherish forever.

"It's just a fantastic place to live and I wouldn't choose anywhere else in the world to be, it is a great country," says new citizen, Tom Minty

After taking the oath, the brand-new united states citizens were each given their official paperwork and of course, an American flag.
