When a cheerleader living a comfortable life in Philadelphia becomes a soldier, it sure is some news. Even more so when she clenches her jaws and stands through the snow storms in Afghanistan to help the people there and relate to them while living in a mud-hut in a remote village.
Here is the inspiring and amazing story of Rachel Washburn, cheerleader-turned-soldier, who recently said, "Nothing motivates me more than being an example of what motivated females can be in the military. I just hope the military continues to progress and that skilled individuals get the opportunities available to them.” We think this braveheart deserves some recognition.
