Army commander Deshauna Barber is crowned Miss USA!

Well done, soldier!
Daily Mail reports this year's newly crowned Miss USA has both beauty and brains in spades - and has also served her country. 

Miss District of Columbia Deshauna Barber, who works as an IT analyst for the U.S. Department of Commerce in Washington D.C. as well as a Logistics Commander for the 988th Quartermaster Detachment Unit at Fort Meade, Maryland, broke down in tears as she was declared the winner. 

The 26-year-old, whose mother, father, brother and sister have also served in the army, claimed the title after giving a strong answer when asked about women in combat, saying that gender doesn't limit women in the U.S. 

She has previously said that joining the military was the 'greatest decision' she has ever made and while she has not yet been deployed overseas, if President Obama asked her to fight in Iraq, she would jump at the opportunity.
