    The Muslim Law Students Association invites you to listen to former Guantanamo Prison army chaplain James Yee discuss his detention as well as the current issues surrounding the infamous prison.

    James J. Yee, also known by the Arabic name Yusuf Yee, is a former United States Army chaplain with the rank of captain. He is best known for being subject to an intense investigation by the United States, but all charges were later dropped. Yee, a Chinese American, was born in New Jersey and raised in Springfield Township, where he attended Jonathan Dayton High School. Yee graduated from West Point in 1990. Shortly afterward, he converted from Lutheran Christianity to Islam in 1991, undergoing religious training in Syria and meeting his wife Huda, a Palestinian, with whom he now has two children.
