YOKOSUKA, Japan (May 7, 2021) — Retail Specialist 3rd Class Chloe Nichole Luz Rodriguez, originally from the Philippines, poses with her certificate of citizenship next to Cmdr. Robert Briggs, commanding officer of USS Mustin (DDG 89) during a United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) naturalization ceremony.
