Johvany Moize, a Brooklyn, New York native and machine gunner with 1st Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, 2d Marine Division, poses for a photo with his father during Continuing Promise 2022 in Jeremie, Haiti, Dec. 14, 2022.“[Being naturalized] was a good feeling,” said Moize. “It didn’t feel real to me that I was an actual citizen.
