DES MOINES, Iowa – It was a moment a National Guard master sergeant said he planned for months.
After hours on an airplane, Master Sgt. Rick Day proposed to his girlfriend as soon as he touched down with other members of the 132nd Fighter Wing Security Forces Squadron.
The proposal happened Wednesday, and the couple was greeted with plenty of hugs and tears.
Day had been overseas for six months providing defense for a base in Oman.
