The Marine Kiss Seen Round The World

So forget Angelina's leg....here's the real viral pic of the week. This stunning photo of a military homecoming in Hawaii is such an unabashed display of love that it went viral after being posted on a Marine Facebook page over the weekend. It got liked more than 15,000 times and commented on 3,000 times.  It has become such a sensation that people wanted to know who these guys were. So now the guys have gone public with the real story behind the photo.

A local news station in Hawaii got the gay couple of four years to sit down and talk about how their photo shows that "love is love", as the Marine himself puts it.  What I love even more than their interview is the comment on all the hubub from a local Marine press rep: "It's your typical homecoming photo". True....not unlike an iconic photo taken in Times Square 65 years ago.
