Miss Indiana Bridget Bobel Cheers the Troops

Bridget Bobel is representing Indiana in the MISS USA pageant. Miss Bobel, a Peru native, is a former staffer for the Majority Caucus in the Indiana House of Representatives.

She is now in Baltimore where the pageant finals will take place April 21st. A Baltimore television station reported on a trip the MISS USA contestants took to the Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) to cheer departing members of the U.S. armed forces. The televised story can be seen here.

Miss Bobel handles herself very well during her brief time on camera. The television segment, though, is a bit over the top. I was struck by the length of this local television news segment and the enthusiasm of the reporter. It is not something seen in most Indiana television markets.

Ms. Bobel remarked:
"We just really appreciate our troops going over and serving our country," said Miss Indiana Bridget Bobel. "They're fighting for our freedom and the freedom of so many other people," she added.
