In fact Muslims have fought for America in every major conflict going back to and including the Revolutionary War.
More than 15,000 Arab Americans fought for the Allies during the Second World War and hundreds have served in diplomatic positions or as translators for US troops since then.
A report from 2011 showed that 6,024 Muslims have fought honorably in in the US military since 9/11, a number which is doubtless higher today.
One of the highest ranking Muslims was Marine Colonel Douglas Burpee, who spent more than 20 years in the military.
In one interview he said: 'Everyone knows I'm a Muslim. When I fly, attached to my dog tags, I wear a pendant with a passage from the Koran'.
Daily Mail Online has profiled some of Captain Khan's contemporaries who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
