It's traditional in the Navy to honor one sailor returning to port by granting them the 'first kiss' with a loved one.
Yesterday, the honor went to Fire Controlman 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta who ran to kiss her fiancé (also a member of the Navy) Fire Controlman 3rd Class Citlalic Snell.
This is surely the first lesbian kiss to be memorialized on the official website of the United States Navy.
It makes me want to cry. God bless America. It just got better.
