A video of a United States Marine completing basic training in South Carolina is going viral this week after it was posted to Twitter.

Jamil Brown, a Marine Corps recruit who completed boot camp on November 30 in Parris Island, South Carolina, was taking a photo with his uncle to celebrate the competition. He wasn’t expecting his girlfriend, Jevonna Williams, to make the trip  to visit he and his comrades in Platoon 1094.

Watch the entire thing unfold below:

“That was not expected,” Williams told The Island Packet Monday, adding, “It’s just something that is heartwarming, and it’s nice to share on Twitter, and I did. And my notifications are through the roof.”

And only 10 days later when Brown had a 10 day leave before shipping off to North Carolina, he surprised Williams by asking her to marry her.

Talk about an awesome story.
