MADISON, Wis. (AP) - It was a happy homecoming for two dozen military families who were reunited with members of a Wisconsin National Guard security forces unit.

And it was especially memorable for one sergeant and his future bride.

Two squadrons from the guard’s 115th Fighter Wing Security Forces spent about six months serving in Africa before arriving at the Dane County Regional Airport Sunday.

Sgt. Justin Padley tells WKOW-TV (https://bit.ly/1luOg4O ) he decided months ago that he would propose to girlfriend Wendy Anderson once he arrived home. Padley says he worked with family members to order a ring and arrange his proposal while he was overseas.

Once his unit arrived at the airport and he saw Anderson, Padley dropped a knee and proposed. She said yes.
