Hello, Allow me to introduce myself, I am a Sophomore High School Student from Miami, Florida and i am Muslim. I was born in Houston, Texas and my parents are Turkish so therefore i am a Turk. I have a good gpa and looking forward to going to college. I wanted to be an officer in the United States Armed Forces ever since i was a little kid (I am down to choosing either Marines, Army, or Navy help me out on that too <_<). I am currently enrolled in NJROTC (navy =p) and i am incredibly motivated and there was nothing else i wanted to choose other then a career in the Armed Forces. One day i turned on CNN and there was news about Religious Discrimination on Military Academies (West Point, Naval Academy, etc.). People looked down on people that weren't Christian, and there was a lot of Anti-Semitism going on. This made me think a lot. Especially with what is going on in the world now (Iraq, Israel-Palestinian Conflict, Muslim Terrorists) and the media changing the views of Muslims, do Christian enlistees and officers view Muslim enlistees and officers serving in the U.S. military as un-trustable, especially during the war in Iraq, which is kind of our own people? If and when i do get commissioned after college (going to take ROTC or NROTC in college), will i be able to earn respect and further my career in the Armed Forces? In all my history books i have never heard of a Muslim United States General or Admiral, which even scares me the most, as i look to try my best in leadership to get all the way to O-10 if i go. Please anyone that is currently serving or has served a long time, can you help me with this? Thanks for your Time.
