FIRST MILITARY MEMBER WINS CONTEST!


Deshauna Barber was born in Columbus, Georgia.

LAS VEGAS (AP) –  The newly crowned Miss USA is a 26-year-old Army officer
from the District of Columbia who gave perhaps the strongest answer of the
night 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 of my unit, I’m powerful, I am dedicated," Deshauna Barber
said. "Gender does not limit us in the United States."

Sunday’s 2016 Miss USA competition, held annually since since 1952, was
held in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Miss Barber will go on to compete in the Miss
Universe contest.


The first Miss America was 16 year old Margaret Gorman in 1921.
