RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Sgt. 1st Class Naida Hosan is not a Muslim - she's a Catholic. But her name sounded Islamic to fellow U.S. soldiers in Iraq, and they taunted her, calling her "Sgt. Hussein" and asking what God she prayed to.
So before deploying to Afghanistan last year for her second war tour, she legally changed her name - to Nadia Christian Nova.
This did not solve her problems.
