How Common is This ?

Maybe I'm simply ignorant about how many beauty-contest contenders come from gritty backrounds, but I was a bit disconcerted to read that the new Miss Utah, Jill Stevens, crowned on the 30th of June, is a combat veteran who did an 18-month tour in Afghanistan, and is still serving in the Utah National Guard with the 1st Battalion, 211th Aviation.

So instead of the cliched "work for world peace", it's "one shot, one kill"... Hooah.

(Or maybe it's "actually do something that might bring some measure of peace to the world, instead of mouthing knowingly empty rhetoric").

More about Jill Stevens, good article.
