Former U.S. Army captain & Muslim chaplain at Guantanamo Bay to speak on campus
James Yee, a Chinese American, graduate of West Point Military Academy, convert to Islam in 1991, captain in the U.S. Army, former Muslim chaplain at Guantanamo Bay and author of “For God and Country: Faith and Patriotism Under Fire,” will speak about his struggle for justice.

Lecture will be held in Life Sciences Complex Room 105 at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 22.
