APTOPIX D Day Citizenship

APTOPIX D Day Citizenship

Ninety-four-year-old World War II veteran Sherwin Callander talks to the media after a naturalization ceremony, Monday, June 2, 2014, in Atlanta. The World War II veteran from Alabama is headed to France for D-Day ceremonies, a trip that seemed unlikely just last week. Callander read about ceremonies for the 70th anniversary of D-Day and thought it would be meaningful to go. He hadn't been back to France since landing on Utah Beach during the Battle of Normandy, but he hit a snag when he went to get a passport. Callander was born in Canada to an American mother, and his family moved to the U.S. when he was 3. But he didn't have documentation proving his U.S. citizenship. Federal officials heard his story and on Monday gave him a proof of citizenship certificate so he could get a passport in time to leave for France just hours later. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
