Luke and I have lived in the USA for a good portion of our lives..we married Americans..and have made a life here as a family.. As I took that oath of allegiance and became a citizen of this land on May 18th, I sensed I had truly come ‘home’ and was increasingly aware of the duty and responsibility of a US citizen.. So it’s with a newfound pride and humble understanding of what so many men and women have sacrificed for our country that I say, #HappyMemorialDay. God bless America.
In the year of our Lord 2017, I, Joel David Smallbone, have officially been sworn in as a citizen of these, here, United States of America. Rest assured, I still have my Australian citizenship as well. Behind me is the first building I ever stepped foot into as a boy in #America…to see the full story of my first American adventure, click my bio link!
