Theresa Vail is an sergeant in the U.S. Army who is a crack shot, can handily skin a deer, is an expert with a bow and arrow, and sports a couple of tattoos. And to top it all off? She speaks Chinese! The 22 year-old blonde beauty is also representing Kansas in the Miss America pageant.(She’s only the second woman from the armed forces to compete in the pageant).

I was about 10 years old. I’d been bullied pretty much consistently up to that point. We lived in Germany at the time and it got so bad that I nearly took my own life. Thank God it was my Dad who saved me. I remember I didn’t know the words of the Serenity Prayer at that point but I knew what I wanted to say to God, which was, help me find peace in these things that they’re making fun of me for, because I can’t change them, but on the other hand I also prayed for courage to just stand up for myself and change things that I really could. So when I was old enough I knew I never wanted to forget that story because I wanted to inspire people who may be in the same situation. That’s why I got the Serenity Prayer tattoo on my side.
