Meet Khalid Saleem—a young, African-American Muslim growing up in a mostly typical suburban family, who, in 1998 at the age of seventeen, makes a major decision that will affect the rest of his life in ways he could not even begin to imagine. Without consulting his parents, he joins the U.S. Army —the “Green,” as he calls it. And it turns out to be the best decision he could have possibly made.
Here is Khalid’s unabashed, candid and humorous telling of his time in Basic Training where he learned, among other things, how to march, run, shoot, do push-ups, obey orders, work as a team and, above all, become a man.
