From Battlefield to Beauty Pageant

Now this is a Miss America candidate I could get interested in. Er, in a wholesome way, of course.

Jill Stevens — Miss Utah, aka G.I. Jill — is a member of the Utah National Guard, with one tour of duty in Afghanistan as a combat medic under her belt. Be sure to check out the rest of her Flickr photos, too.

Seeing young people like this really restores my hope for the future of this country.

UPDATE: See a brief bio of Miss Stevens — with more photos — here.

Finally, here is a video of G.I. Jill describing her path to the pageant.
