An Army officer was just crowned Miss USA
At the end of the Miss USA beauty pageant on Jun. 5, Miss District of Columbia, U.S. Army Reserve 1st Lt. Deshauna Barber, was crowned the winner.
Barber is a logistics officer and commands the 988th Quartermaster Detachment in Fort Meade, Maryland.
The Miss USA pageant aired a commercial highlighting Barber’s dual nature. It shows embodying the feminine ideals of the beauty pageant after showing stripping off her military uniform.
Barber will now have to juggle her responsibilities as Miss USA, which entails appearing at public events and preparing for the Miss Universe pageant, while working in her day job as a Department of Commerce IT analyst and serving as a U.S. Army officer.
