Milwaukee police officer proposes to girlfriend right after award ceremony

Posted: Updated:

MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Getting one of the most prestigious awards was not the highlight of a Milwaukee police officer's night this week.

On Wednesday, people were honored as some of Milwaukee's bravest, including Officer Anthony Milone.  Milone received the Medal of Valor Combat Award for shooting back at a suspect who fired at him.  He ended up capturing the felon wanted for murder.

But shortly after the ceremony, Officer Milone proposed to his girlfriend, Rangana Wanniarachchi. Her father works as a photojournalist for our Milwaukee affiliate, WISN, and he captured the entire surprise proposal and the moment she said "yes."
