CHUCK KENNEDY / MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS

Muslim soldier from Fort Lewis stood up for America and for his faith

Kareem Rashad Sultan Khan was invoked by Gen. Colin Powell in his endorsement of Sen. Barack Obama on Sunday's "Meet the Press." Khan, 20, is one of four Muslim soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan and buried in Arlington National Cemetery. Powell said a photo of Khan's tombstone, with a crescent and star, was a reminder that Muslims shouldn't be considered any less American than others.
