Veteran proposes marriage to girlfriend at Kentucky Science Center

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Screams and cheers erupted from inside the Kentucky Science Center on Monday.

The screams and cheers were not just for a cool experiment.

Keith Briggs urged his girlfriend, Robin Thomas, to volunteer for an experiment.

The couple took turns dropping Mentos into Diet Coke bottles and kids cheered at the reaction.

At the end of the demonstration, when the staff asked if there were any questions, Briggs popped a big one: he asked his girlfriend to marry him.

Thomas said, "I had no idea, no idea. In fact, he was bickering with me on the way here, so I thought it was going to be a bad day."

Briggs is a retired, disabled veteran and says he wanted everyone to know how much his fiance means to him, and all she's done during his recovery.
