Sergeant pops question after returning from Afghanistan

AMARILLO, Texas

With a terminal full of people and a ring in hand, Sgt. Josh Salicco got down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend, Christina.

They were surrounded by cheering family, friends and well wishers in Amarillo.

"Without her, I wouldn't have been able to make it. She was my life support," said Salicco.

Christina said yes, and the couple is expected to marry in June 2012.
