Schroeder plans to graduate from the United States Air Force Academy with a degree in civil engineering in May. He was awarded a pilot slot and will begin pilot training at Vance Air Force Base in July.
The couple met at a Christian Challenge group at the academy in their freshman year and began dating at the end of their junior year. They were engaged on Nov. 28, 2014 in Granada. While MacLeod was studying at the Spanish Air Force Academy last fall, Schroeder flew to Spain and proposed during Thanksgiving break on a romantic pathway in Granada. They announced their engagement to family and friends at a party at the home of the bride’s parents.
