Ah, Joe. It's gratitude time. The only Muslim family I'm aware of in your country already has a Gold Star.
Muslim infantry saved many American lives in Italy, and has always been welcomed warriors in Commonwealth ranks.
They not only fought side-by-side as distinct units within US divisions in Sicily and Italy, they pulled Mark Clark's fat out of the fire in one of finest attacks of the war.
And don't forget the Muslim nation Turkey's performance in the Korean War. From Wikipedia:
"United Nations Forces Commander in Chief, General Douglas MacArthur, described Turkish Brigade's contribution to the war: "The military situation in Korea is being followed with concern by the whole American public. But in these concerned days, the heroism shown by the Turks has given hope to the American nation. It has inculcated them with courage. The American public fully appreciates the value of the services rendered by the Turkish Brigade and knows that because of them the Eighth American Army could withdraw without disarray. The American public understands that the United Nations Forces in Korea were saved from encirclement and from falling in to the hands of the communists by the heroism shown by the Turks."
