Navy Chooses Two Women To Share Traditional First Kiss

Petty officer Marissa Gaeta was chosen to share a first kiss with her girlfriend, also a petty officer in the Navy, on the docks after returning home. The Navy is publicly recognizing the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” Two responses: “Awww” and “Hot!!!”

The crowd screamed and waved flags around them.

Both women, ages 22 and 23 respectively, are fire controlmen in the Navy. They met at training school and have been dating for two years.

Navy officials said it was the first time on record that a same-sex couple was chosen to kiss first upon a ship’s return. Sailors and their loved ones bought $1 raffle tickets for the opportunity. Gaeta said she bought $50 of tickets.
