Sgt. 1st Class A posed for the Miami Herald on Thursday, July 9, 2015 at the U.S. Navy base at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, in her civilian, prayer garb not far from the dining room for prison guards and other staff, in a photo framed under U.S. military rules of access to keep her identity anonymous. A platoon sergeant by day, she dresses like any other U.S. soldier, in battle dress, with no traditional Muslim head cover, but says in civilian life she covers her hair in keeping with her practice of Islam. U.S. Army soldiers reviewed this photo invoking Pentagon security restrictions and cleared it for release.
