                By the authority vested in me as President by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of 
                America, including section 329 of the Immigration and 
                Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1440) (the ``Act''), and

                during the period of the war against terrorists of 
                global reach, it is hereby ordered as follows:

                For the purpose of determining qualification for the 
                exception from the usual requirements for 
                naturalization, I designate as a period in which the 
                Armed Forces of the United States were engaged in armed 
                conflict with a hostile foreign force the period 
                beginning on September 11, 2001. Such period will be 
                deemed to terminate on a date designated by future 
                Executive Order. Those persons serving honorably in 
                active-duty status in the Armed Forces of the United

                2001, and terminating on the date to be so designated, 
                are eligible for naturalization in accordance with the 
                statutory exception to the naturalization requirements, 
                as provided in section 329 of the Act. Nothing
