The Queen of the Lakes for the Aquatennial gets called up to active duty to the National Guard to go to Iraq, and becomes a role model
Gaulke will present her resignation today to the annual meeting of the Aquatennial Ambassador Organization. Though she said being Queen of the Lakes is "a huge honor," she said she is simply honoring the agreement she made when she committed to the Guard before her senior year at Robbinsdale Cooper High School.
"It really wasn't a decision that was mine to be made," said Gaulke, a former Miss Robbinsdale. "My unit's going. I've accepted it. It's part of the whole scope of why I joined; I'll be there for all of us over here."
Her beauty is on the inside as well as the outside.
