Citizenship for Airmen

Senior Airman Camilla Elizeu
355th Fighter Wing Public Affairs

A Desert Lightning Team member will lead the Pima Community Citizenship program here, Sept. 5.

Pima Community College offers the course on their campus for all those who would like to obtain their U.S. Citizenship but Master Sgt. Natasha Lindblom, 355th Comptroller Squadron Financial Management Flight flight chief, volunteered to teach the classes to Airmen and their dependents on base.

“The course is free to anyone interested in getting their citizenship,” Lindblom said.

The program is designed to ease the stress of going through the process from start to finish.

“If people need education on the process we can assist them with that,” Lindblom said. “We also cover the lessons which the test will be on.

The reason the program is being brought to the base is because there are people who don’t have their citizenship serving in the U.S. military.

“The class will be offered once a week for 10 weeks,” Lindblom said. “Participants can come as needed; it is not a necessity for them to attend every class. The class is not rigorous; people can come as many times as they want.”

To sign up for the course, contact the Pima Community College office on base at
206-4866.
