Aragon said something she hopes to accomplish by participating in the fashion event is to show that being a woman in the military doesn't mean you can't enjoy fashion and beauty.
“A lot of people think if you're going in the military, you have to be macho and all that. It's just not true. In the military today, you can have any career you want and still be a lady,” Aragon said.
For women, today's military is a great leveling field in terms of professions, Aragon said.
“You're rated on your ability, your talents, the time you've been in. It's one of the few places where women earn the same as men when they have the same job, the same requirements. It's really a great opportunity,” she said.
