Soldiers get engaged after meeting in war

FRANKLIN, Ind., Sept. 3 (UPI) -- After meeting in Afghanistan, two U.S. soldiers are now preparing to wed after an unusual proposal.

Army Sgt. Mike Miller and his future wife, Hollie, met on the battlefield, but their proposal took place in the sky Sunday, WISH-TV Indianapolis reported.

"The very first time I saw her I was like, 'I'm going to marry that girl,'" said Miller, but he had to come up with a way to propose.

Just one year later Miller bought the ring but couldn’t decide how to pop the question, so he asked his future mother-in-law.

"He says, do you have any ideas? And I said yeah, you guys went sky diving and some people would pay for a banner. But why don't you guys have the message on the ground. So when she comes back to earth there it is!. And he goes, 'I like that,'" Hollie's mother Jennifer Chapman said.

Once Hollie hit the ground Sunday Mike popped the question and she said yes.

"I wasn't expecting this at all," Hollie said.
