This guy got married.
Spc. Dupree kept that pledge this weekend in a brief ceremony punctuated by tears and laughter before 120 family members and friends.
The 24-year-old Army reservist was part of the first contingent of U.S. troops to touch down Sept. 26 at Baltimore-Washington International Airport for 15 days of rest and relaxation.
For Spc. Dupree the past week has been anything but rest and relaxation. After all, he had a wedding to help plan.
"It's been hectic," he acknowledged a few days before Friday-night's ceremony. "I haven't had time to relax much."
