A local Marine managed to pull off the surprise of a lifetime.

With the help of his  friends at MCAS Miramar, Lance Corporal William Bell was able to keep his marriage proposal a secret.

Leianna Seals thought she was in San Diego to pick up a gown for the upcoming military ball.

Bell won an engagement ring and gown in a contest in which he shared his love story about how they met in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Much to her surprise, Bell proposed instead and she said: Yes!

"It was an awesome surprise, first time in Southern California, so I'm loving the weather, here from Southern New Orleans, so I'm just speechless. I don't know what else to say," said Seals.

They haven't set a wedding date yet.

The military ball is next month.
