Attention! This unique military proposal will make you laugh. Retired officer Thomas Walker helped his daughter Courtney's boyfriend propose drill sergeant-style and the video has gone viral.

Normally, yelling demands at the bride-to-be wouldn't be considered a romantic way to pop the question, but it's clear that this dad only wants the best for his little girl. He makes his future son-in-law promise him that he will love, honor, protect and support his daughter. After he responds with a "yes sir," he commands Courtney to stand front and center. Just when you think "G.I. Dad" is going to ask the couple to drop and give him 20, he allows the groom-to-be to finally utter those four little words.

Check out the proposal here:

Walker posted the video on the video-sharing site Rumble with the following caption, "This amazing young airman proposed to my daughter, Courtney immediately after his graduation ceremony for Air Force Basic Military Training at Lackland AFB on May 23rd, 2014. To say she was surprised would be an understatement. It was a fantastic moment! This was a special time for me since I also officially retired from 24 years in the armed services 3 days later on Memorial Day. What a blessed time for both families!"

It is clear that this military dad can't wait to march down the aisle with his daughter. Best wishes to the happy couple!
