Flag Day Naturalization Ceremony Honoring Jeff Bezos

Amazon.com founder and James Smithson Bicentennial Medal recipient Jeff Bezos addresses the crowd, speaking about his father’s journey from Cuba to the U.S. at the Special Naturalization Ceremony held in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C. on June 14, 2016.

 

The citation on the medal says: For his embodiment of American creativity through new uses of the internet; for envisioning the future, on earth and in space; for transforming the consumer experience and the speed of business; for valuing entrepreneurship, innovation and freedom. Through the expression of these values and achievements he has contributed to the fulfillment of James Smithson’s vision for the “increase and diffusion of knowledge.”
