Congratulations to Deshauna Barber, winner of the Miss USA 2016 competition. Not just a beauty queen, the newly crowned Miss USA is a 26 year old Army officer from the District of Columbia. During the competition, Deshauna Barber gave a strong answer when asked about women in combat:
“As a woman in the United States Army, I think…we are just as tough as men. As a commander in my unit, I’m powerful and I am dedicated…Gender does not limit us in the United States.”
