Now this is cool! Salute the Runway is a new fashion show at New York Fashion Week that will honor veterans who have served our country by incorporating servicewomen as its models.

Models will walk in designers like Calvin Klein, DKNY, and Mara Hoffman.
"This is an opportunity to show folks it's not just men who serve. Women are out there doing the hard jobs too," said Stacy Pearsall, a retired staff sergeant who was wounded in Iraq. "I've spent most of my time in uniform, [but] I love fashion. I'm not a beautiful, tall girl you usually see on the runway, but I can hold my own."
What a great idea! Meet the models and read up on the full announcement here.
