National Guard Member in Miss America Pageant

From The Washington Times:

During Sunday’s Miss America pageant, televised September 15 at 9 p.m. on CBS, Vail will be the first contestant not to cover her tattoos during the bathing suit and evening gown portion of the competition.

Vail’s body art is not subtle. The serenity prayer is tattooed on her right side, and covers the area from just under her arm all the way down to her hip in large old English style writing. Vail has another tattoo of the army medical corp. insignia on her shoulder. Both will be visible.
