Thanks Joshua, I wanted to use some kind of date format in latex but ended up using exactly what you and Marc suggested.  
Felipe D. Carrillo
Supervisory Fishery Biologist
Department of the Interior
US Fish & Wildlife Service
California, USA

Is this what you want?

format(as.Date("3/10/10",
> format="%m/%d/%y"), "%B %d, %Y")
