ALAMANCE COUNTY, N.C. -- Many people are probably finalizing their Valentine’s Day plans.

But a couple here in the Piedmont is probably working on their wedding plans.

Sgt. Jeff Karnes grew up in the Piedmont Triad and graduated from Southern Alamance High School.

He recently came home from his fourth deployment and he had quite a surprise for his girlfriend.

Karnes won the Charlie Company "First Kiss" raffle, but had a lot more than just a kiss for her.

Of course, she said yes.

The couple hasn't set a date yet, but we here at FOX8 wish them all the best.
