I would like to tell you the story behind this picture. My son, U.S. Navy petty officer third class Kyle Bergman from Wadesville, Ind., is stationed in Yokosuka, Japan. He wanted to find the perfect way to propose to his girlfriend, Mallorie. She planned to visit Kyle in Japan so he asked her to bring a copy of Evansville Living so they could take a picture for your Snapshot section.
We reminded her every time we talked so she wouldn’t forget – because it was to play an important role in the proposal – though Mallorie, from Bowling Green, Ky., didn’t realize this. As you can see, the magazine made it there. Kyle asked a friend to come along to take the picture for them. As Kyle was holding the magazine, he went down on one knee and proposed. Kyle would like to thank Evansville Living for helping him with one of the most wonderful days in his life (besides his nieces being born, that is.) The photo was taken on Monkey Island (Sarushima) in Yokosuka, Japan, on Aug. 20, 2012.
