    That's lovely.

    I first became aware that there were a LOT of gay sailors in San Diego my only time there, where a gay bar was full of them.

    In fact, one of them gave me the best pickup line I'd ever heard.

    I was with a group talking and one sailor in the circle just kept looking up at me, finally saying only this to me: "You're what we're fighting for."

    That'd make a great caption for that kiss photo.

    Obviously this was the Gulf War. Thanks for not suggesting Vietnam.

    Seriously cool. I hope a lot of papers pick up on this; I cc'd it to the Seattle Times.

    Remember when the sky was going to fall if if LGBT's were allowed to serve? Remember Sam Nunn inspecting the sleeping quarters on a submarine and saying LGBT's would ruin the military? I hope he's reading this.

    And the guys were elected!

    Send copies to Judge Roy and Bobby Jindal and Sam Brownback and the whole raft of GOP neanderthals!

    This won't be the last but sorry to mention how contrived seems the photo staged among projectiles. Campy but not candid. Congrats to your friend, to gay community, on the occasion nonetheless.

    Pssst! It wasn't the first kiss Gay kiss on a Navy Vessel.

    My ex Jimmy was on an LST in 84. We managed to sneak a kiss in the galley.

    Haha well noted.

    There was a lesbian couple that got the "first kiss" I believe last year too which was pretty awesome to see.
