The 2021 spring graduation ceremony for the Augusta, Georgia Fire Department was one to remember for Marcus Thomas. After being pinned by his girlfriend, the firefighter dropped to one knee to propose. Through tears of joy and a room full of love, Olivia Golatt nodded, “yes.” Thomas told the fire department he had been planning the proposal for months. “He knew that becoming a firefighter could be a lifetime commitment of service to the people of Augusta, Georgia, so he wanted to commit himself to a lifetime with the person he loves the most,” the fire department wrote in a post on Facebook.
