Rosemarie Felts, a native of Berlin, Germany, talks about her love for her new country, the United States, and the journey that led her to become a U.S. citizen in 1969. Felts’ remarks were part of the Old-Fashioned Fourth of July Celebration held Tuesday, July 4, at the Historic Forks of the Wabash. She is writing a book about her experiences of “being an alien,” saying she “feels the freedom” of the country.
