Finally, after months of battling with terrorists in Marawi, soldiers and policemen are finally back to their mother units. And to celebrate their victory over the Maute group, a surprise heroes’ welcome had been prepared where they were awarded with Medals of Valor for their bravery and patriotism.
The celebration was attended by their families and loved ones who were all excited for their most-awaited comeback. But just when everybody thought the celebration was over, a policeman from the Regional Public Safety Battalion of Northern Mindanao surprised his girlfriend with a wedding proposal.
PO1 Alexis Tagapulot suddenly knelt down before his girlfriend, Angeline, and asked her to marry him. Angeline is a social worker and was his girlfriend for 3 years. Because of the Marawi siege, the couple was unable to see each other and had lost communication for 5 months.
According to Tagapulot, he knew it was the right time for him to show how much he loves her and he doesn’t want to waste even a single minute of it now that they were together again.
Shortly after proposing, Angeline had given her ‘sweetest’ yes while all people who were there rejoiced and were so happy to see their genuine love for one another.
The heroes’ welcome was not only a celebration of victory but it also turned out to be a ‘romantic’ confession of love.
Tagapulot and Angeline plan to seal their love and get married next year, 2018.
