USAF Pilot competes for Miss America

Miss Colorado Madison Marsh, who secured the title last May, is set to create history as the first active-duty US Air Force officer to compete for the Miss America crown. The 22-year-old, with a degree in physics from the Air Force Academy, successfully blends her military service with her pageant achievements. Advocating for breaking limitations, Marsh encourages others to find their passions, emphasizing the military’s openness for personal leadership. She will compete in the Miss America pageant in Florida on January 13 and 14, showcasing her dedication to both military and pageant commitments.

Marsh’s journey involves pursuing a Master’s in Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School while holding the rank of 2nd lieutenant. Initially aspiring to a pilot’s license, she explored pageants during her time at the Air Force Academy, ultimately winning Miss Colorado. Marsh aims to use her platform to challenge stereotypes about military women and inspire young girls to serve. Additionally, driven by her mother’s battle with pancreatic cancer, she envisions contributing to cancer research and impactful policies.
