Soldier Proposes Marriage During Homecoming Ceremony


Hundreds of 10th Mountain Division soldiers are returning from a nine month deployment in Afghanistan - and one of them had a big surprise for his girlfriend!

At Tuesday's welcome home ceremony at Fort Drum, Tucker White of the 10th Aviation Brigade's Pathfinder Unit got help from two of his buddies in holding up a special sign. 

It read, "Monica, will you marry me?"

Tucker's girlfriend, Monica Bogado said yes.

So how did Tucker get an engagement ring while he was in Afghanistan?

He coordinated with friends and family to help him out.

Tucker, a Texas native, and Bogado will tie the knot in her hometown in New Jersey on May 25.
