With hundreds of military bases around the world, troops have a lot of options on where to pop the big question. Here are some of WATM's top picks:

1. Neuschwanstein Castle - Schwangau, Germany

Spc. Rafael Campos, a parachute rigger for the 421st Quartermaster detachment 4, and some of his fellow riggers gathered Nov. 2 to set up for the momentous occasion of proposing to his girlfriend in California (U.S. Army Photo by Spc. Adrianne Vinson, Public Affairs, 421st Quartermaster )

This soldier overcame the distance between him and his girlfriend. Whatever your plans are for proposing, just don't forget the ring. (And here are some engagement ring ideas from our friends at Shane Co.)
