Reigning Miss USA Nana Meriwether of Maryland and 2013 Miss Nevada USA Chelsea Caswell of Las Vegas attended a meet-and-greet with troops and their families, hosted by Chinese Laundry, at The Exchange at Nellis Air Force Base on Saturday, and contributing photographer Erik Kabik of Retna was onsite for a photo gallery.

1995 Miss USA Shanna Moakler, who remains active with the Miss USA Organization, also attended the event in North Las Vegas. Meriwether became Miss USA in December after Olivia Culpo of Rhode Island won the 2012 Miss Universe Pageant at Planet Hollywood on Dec. 19.

Caswell, who works for Steve Wynn at his casino resorts here as a food and beverage supervisor, competes in the 2013 Miss USA Pageant at Planet Hollywood on June 19. Two questions: No tiaras? Who would travel without them?!
