Remember this iconic photo?
It looked pretty sweet didn’t it? 1945, after the announcement of end of WWII at Times Square a sailor grabs the nurse and kisses her. Sweet photo but many controversies behind it, like the sailor being unidentified for years (some still think his identity is unknown) because he was married (not to the woman pictured, LOL).
Here’s the newest, still sweet version:
Two female US navy sailors shared a kiss after returning to base at Virginia Beach, VA after an 80 day deployment to Central America :). Unlike the iconic 1945 photo pictured above, these two are actually a couple and in love! Navy officials said it was the first time a same-sex couple was chosen to have the first kiss. The first-kiss is a Navy tradition for ships returning to port.
I was delighted to see this on the news a few days ago :). Husby knows me so well he asked me if I had seen it (we both saw it on different occasions) and he somehow knew I would blog about it. LOL.
