Madison Marsh, a 22-year-old Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force, was crowned Miss America 2024 on Sunday. It's the 1st time an active-duty service member has taken the top prize. Marsh graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy in 2023 with a degree in physics and was Miss Colorado before winning her crown and title of Miss America 2024.


"We've had this preconceived notion in the past that you might be judged and not be taken seriously as a leader," Marsh told People. "This just proves that you can be feminine while leaning into your leadership role," she added to the outlet.
