Be sure to land your entire family at the admission-free American Heroes Air Show when U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services hosts a Naturalization Ceremony for members of the military. In conjunction with Texas Military Forces and the American Veterans Traveling Tribute [ AVTT ], the American Anthem presentation is sure to be an emotionally charged ceremony as members of the military affirm their support for and love of America by taking the formal Oath of Allegiance and become U.S. Citizens in front of AVTT’sgleaming replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall.

The American Veterans Traveling Tribute (www.avtt.org) is a veteran-owned project that travels the USA to provide a forum for communities to HONORRESPECT - REMEMBER those who have sacrificed their lives for our country's freedom. The AVTT Exhibit includes a September 11 tribute, a Cost of Freedom display of Gold Dog Tags (identifying each service member killed since Vietnam), and the centerpiece of the exhibit: An exact replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall (80% scale), displaying all 58,253 names of the men and women killed in the Vietnam War. "It is an especially important first for us to provide our Vietnam Memorial Wall as the backdrop for members of the military as theyrecite their Oath of Allegiance", explained Don Allen, Executive Director of the AVTT and retired U.S. Army Special Forces. "We’re proud to be part of this event at the Texas Military Force’s historic Camp Mabry while we honor all Veterans and those currently serving by letting them know they will never be forgotten," Allen added.

"This will be a memorable way to honor those serving in our military", said Brian Johnson, Event Director of Austin’s American Heroes Air Show. "We are honored the American Veterans Traveling Tribute will be with us to provide an emotional backdrop to all the heroes that will stand up today and take their Oath of Allegiance."

Event Director Johnson has been working for months with the team from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services on the scheduling and presentation details. "It’s been an eye-opening privilege to work with USCIS from Dallas and San Antonio," Johnson noted. "The naturalization or ‘NATZ’ ceremony, as they call it, fits in so well with the theme of the American Heroes Air Show – and it’s a vivid reminder to our guests that many serving our country in the military are fighting to defend citizenship benefits that they themselves don’t fully enjoy."

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) conducts naturalization ceremonies at public locations, such as the American Heroes Air Show, to reinforce the value and meaning of the process through which the United States naturalizes citizens – many of them serving in the military. As part of the Department of Homeland Security, (DHS), USCIS naturalized 10,505 members of the military in fiscal 2009, with 1,655 of those men and women taking the Oath of Allegiance at ceremonies overseas. Since 2001 USCIS has naturalized more than 55,000 soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines at ceremonies across the country and in 17 nations around the world.

The American Heroes Air Show is admission-free at sites from coast-to-coast and dedicated to educating the public about the unique capabilities of helicopters in law enforcement, fire service, public / private EMS, homeland defense and national security. Produced by the American Heroes Aviation Network, the event also includes the CODE3 Career Fair which delivers recruiting teams from law enforcement, public safety, government service, volunteer agencies and the military who are on-scene to profile their mission and provide information on their hiring, training and application processes.

As a long tradition at American Heroes Air Shows around the country, collectible event trading cards will be available and free in limited quantities to early bird event arrivals. These popular trading cards feature photos ofparticipating aircraft plus flight performance and mission profiles.

In Austin, the American Heroes Air Show is part of the American Heroes Celebration weekend in collaboration with the Texas Military Forces at Camp Mabry which features award presentations, entertainment, historic military reenactments, concessions and much, much more.
