U.S. Marine Corps captain Matthew Phelps is the first man to propose to his male partner inside the White House.
Phelps and his boyfriend Ben Schock were visiting the monument when Phelps got down on his knees and popped the question.
Ben said “yes” as visitors looked on.
Phelp’s wrote on his Facebook page:
“Such a special night surrounded by wonderful people in an amazing place, and the best is still yet to come with Ben Schock. Thanks for all the wonderful greetings and messages, and thanks to Barack Obama and Michelle Obama for lending us your home for the occasion!”
