“It’s an honor that this day has come. A dream come true today. Yes. Definitely,” Montez told WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs.

How would the late president feel on this special day?

“Simply bully! For you see, Americanism is not a question of birthplace, creed, or religion, but rather a question of purpose, spirit, and ideal,” says Roosevelt re-enactor James Foote. “Well, he’d be certainly satisfied and happy to see that the great American experiment is still going on.”

Two US servicemen are among the newest Americans sworn-in.
