Nevermind the Half-Hitch, Let’s Get Hitched!
The most significant question asked during the Surface Warrior Ball this year wasn’t “chicken or steak?” but rather, “will you marry me?”
HM3 Charles Carroll popped the question to his girlfriend of four years, Courtney Loughman during the ball—incorporating the proposal into the evening’s raffle prizes. After HM3 Carroll handed Courtney the ballot, the emcee called out their names… at which point HM3 Carroll dropped to one knee. All dressed up and completely taken my surprise, Courtney got her fairytale proposal during the grand ball.
HM3 Carroll had previously been thinking of summer wedding proposal opportunities and already notified both families of his plan. The happy couple plans to tie the knot next summer in Michigan, where the bride is currently pursuing her master’s degree.
