VICTORY KISS

Another V-J Day (August 14, 1945) shot finds us out in front
of the Trans-Lux Theater in Times Square, New York City, where
a sailor plants a victory kiss on his girlfriend's lips mere seconds
after word of the end of the war with Japan is announced. Click
to enlarge the photo, and you'll see the Amphibious Operations
Commando patch on his left sleeve.
