Returning Soldier Proposes to Girlfriend

Is anyone you know heading home from serving in Iraq? All the homecomings are pretty special. But one young man decided to make the day even more memorable.

In middle of the crowd on Cottrell Field this morning, Pfc. Lee Cummings dropped to one knee and proposed to girlfriend Amanda Kocher.

Cummings says he'd been planning this "since about half way through the deployment. I'd gotten the ring, but was waiting until I got home to give it to her. It finally happened."

They'll quickly work out the wedding details. The groom to be was among 300 soldiers from five different units to return this morning.
