NEW YORK, NY - OCTOBER 25: John Cincar, 62, (L), raises his right hand while repeating the oath of allegiance to the United States during a ''homebound'' naturalization ceremony on October 25, 2013 in the Queens borough of New York City. Cincar, who was born in Yugoslavia and moved to the United States in 1965, has been a quadripelegic since falling at home in 2011 and now lives in the Midway Nursing Home. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), performs such on site naturalization ceremonies for immigrants with health issues and disabilities who have limited mobility. With his new American citizenship, Cincar says he plans to apply for a U.S. passport and, after further physical rehabilitation, hopes to travel back to his village near Belgrade, Serbia to visit family members he has not seen since his youth. He served in the U.S. Army from 1969-1972 as a supply clerk in Germany. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
