The event included a number of musical interludes from the Texas Children’s Choir, a naturalization ceremony for eight ne U.S. citizens, readings of the service creeds and singing of the service songs.

The ceremony ended with three volleys of rifle fire from the Fort Sam Houston Memorial Services Detachment and the playing of “Taps.”
