Austin is a Private First Class in the U.S. Marine Corps and wanted to surprise his girlfriend Brittany.

The proposal wasn't Austin's only surprise though, Brittany had no idea he was even coming home.

"Um, it was a little scary in the beginning because someone was late and I was kinda freaking out in the back," Austin said. "But I was shaking and my emotions were running, but I am just so glad to be home and have it happen and everything is just great."

Austin's family said it was hard to keep everything a secret.

Brittany said it was the best day of her life.
