Soldier's homecoming turns into surprise proposal
Returning from deployment, one soldier surprised his girlfriend with the question of a lifetime.
For Kaetlyn Miller, an exciting moment turned into a life-changing one. She was on her way to the airport to pick up her boyfriend, Sgt. Eric Parker. He was returning home from an 11-month deployment in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Running late, Miller ran to the arrivals area. A soldier walked past her; she noticed he was carrying a sign that simply read, “Will.”
“At first I was like, ‘Why did he have a Will sign?’” Miller told GoodMorningAmerica.com. “And then everyone was like, ‘Oh, my God. Read the signs, read the signs.’”
Two more soldiers walked by, carrying signs that read “You” and “Marry.” Finally, she spotted Parker, carrying a sign that read “Me?”

“I knew before the deployment, I just wanted to wait for the right time.”
The couple plan to tie the knot next spring. Read more about their story here.
