Pulaski to be U.S. citizen?

More than 200 years after his death, Revolutionary War hero Casimir Pulaski is on the verge of becoming an American citizen.
Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) announced Saturday that the Senate unanimously passed a resolution he sponsored granting the Polish-born Pulaski posthumous, honorary citizenship. Durbin introduced similar legislation in August 2005, but it never came up for a vote.

"We're all very aware of the contribution he made during our nation's revolution," Durbin said Saturday before the Polish Constitution Day Parade, "and I believe that bestowing this honor in his memory is a tribute not only to him but to the Polish people and what they've meant to America from the beginning."
