Pulaski to be U.S. citizen?

Breaking News

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."
