Sammy has been in the Army approximately fifteen years and dating his girlfriend Jennifer about half of that time. After several months of Jennifer bugging him to propose, Sammy finally got the courage to ask his superior officer for permission to use the galley and mess-hall so he could propose to his girlfriend. Upon obtaining proper permission, Sammy explained to Jennifer he would be home late for the next three nights. On the third night, Sammy told Jennifer to go buy a new evening gown, get her hair done and look her best for the following day. The next day came and Jennifer did just what Sammy had told her to with anticipation and wonder. Later that night, Sammy picked up Jennifer, blindfolded her, and soon arrived at the mess-hall. To Jennifer’s surprise, Sammy finally proposed and Jennifer accepted. Two years later, Jennifer gave birth to their new baby boy.
