Fort Bragg couple gets hitched after Iraq betrothal

In Culture, Fayetteville, Fort Bragg, N.C. on December 31, 2007 at 4:56 pm

A year ago, when Maj. Eric Olson of Flushing surprised Maj. Laura Geldhof by proposing in a combat zone in Iraq. The two Army officers were supposed to wed Oct. 6 in a “dream autumn wedding” that had already been planned with gold hues and tables sprinkled with fall leaves. But in June the couple learned that Olson’s second tour in Iraq would be 15 months instead of 12.

Long story short, they finally got all married up this month. Awww. But a couple of cool quotes from the bride:

  • “He was wearing his rifle and everything. How many people propose armed?”
  • “I think being in a combat zone can be easier than planning a wedding.”
