Certain veterans of the U.S. armed forces are eligible for expedited U.S. citizenship through their military service.
In partnership with the Governor's Office and the California Department of Social Services (CDSS), the California Department of Veterans Affairs launched an initiative to reach out and educate unnaturalized veterans in California regarding the state and federal benefits they earned based on their military service, including expedited citizenship naturalization services.
