The inauguration of Donald Trump was filled with plenty of powerful and inspiring moments.
However, you probably haven’t heard about this special story from the weekend.
It’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
Bristol Palin has the details…
Two-time Purple Heart recipient Shane Kruchten proposed to his girlfriend Reena Norville.
“If I’m gonna propose, I’m gonna do it in front of the President of the United States while I’m standing here with my brothers and sisters of the Armed Forces,” Kruchcen says. “Make America Great Again? Why not Make My Life Great Again?”
How sweet is that? Kruchcen was deployed to Iraq twice where he received life-threatening injuries.
He told IJR:
“Most people can’t say they spent their 18th, 20th, and 21st birthdays all in a hospital recovering from war wounds,” he says as his new fiancé takes his hand. The Marine tells IJR that he struggled with alcoholism, drug abuse, and suicide attempts after leaving the Service, but Reena gives him purpose.
Rest assured, readers, she said YES!
Doesn’t get much better than that in terms of engagement stories.
Congratulations to Shane and Reena.Note: The author of this article has included commentary that expresses an opinion and analysis of the facts.
