Muslims in the Military: Converting to Islam in the Air Force | NBC Left Field
Many Muslims in the U.S. Air Force hide their faith to avoid harassment. Because of the secrecy, the majority of openly-practicing Muslims are actually converts—people who enter the military as one faith and then switch to Islam. Muslim converts like Lillian Harbor are often ostracized by friends and family who don’t support their decision. This makes the process of transitioning to Islam on a military base all the more isolating.
