Come to the Oakland Center (campus map) in Banquet Room A at 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday April 3 and be a part of the truly amazing story of courage and hope told by James Yee. Yee ministered to Muslim detainees held at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, some of whom are suspected al Qaeda terrorists and members of the Taliban. He was arrested on September 10, 2003, when a U.S. Customs agent found a list of Guantanamo detainees and interrogators among his belongings. He was charged with five offenses: sedition, aiding the enemy, spying, espionage, and failure to obey a general order. These charges were later reduced to mishandling classified information in addition to some minor charges. The government dropped all the charges and reinstated him to his former rank. He resigned from the military and is visiting campuses and groups across the country to tell his amazing story.*
