BAYAMON, Puerto Rico (AP) -- Miss USA says she thinks the U.S. Navy should halt bombing exercises on Vieques until studies prove the training does not harm residents of the island.
Asked about Vieques, Kandace Krueger said: "I think the bombing should cease until they have done further research to prove that there is not any danger to the people of Vieques."
Krueger also said Wednesday the Navy should be able to continue using its firing range on the island's eastern tip "if they verify and prove that there's no harm done to the people."
