    Beautiful image! My girlfriend tells me I have to take this man as an example. She is thinking I am not enough romantic. Ok, so I know what I have to do!

    I don't know but he'd probably be in trouble doing that to a stranger today. That woman was kind of lucky. I wonder what happened next.

    Everyone was so happy and celebrating that day that no-one cared. But today it might be different. Many years after 1945 when the picture was taken many different women claimed to be the woman in the picture. No one was ever sure. But it may have been staged.

    Sorry. I was a student nurse that day working 3-11 in a delivery room welcoming new babies into a free from war world. Disappointing that we are still fighting all over the world. I would have loved to go to Time Square that day since I was right across the Hudson river in New Jersey.

    Very old . 86. Been a sodahead member since 2007 but did not go on much Retired three years ago and been coming on off and on . Getting bored being retired and healthy so I am getting a kick out of this. If I just disappear you will know what happened.

    Hello, you must be happy about over the years. waw. I would very much like you did escort and again to recall the street Times Square in New York. We visited the beautiful coffee shop and talk about your memories. But the problem is that I am not American, I'm from Europe. Otherwise, you will be in place to Times Square, please send me a postcard. thank you

    I did not recall, so I scrolled down and peeked! He was from Rhode Island. The kiss was in Times Square on V-J Day and more than one woman claimed to be the object of his affection. Since I peeked, I do not deserve a star!

    By now the man from Rhode island would be close to 90. I do not know if he could survive a kiss like that from you today! However, if you insist, maybe Sister Jean could get you his name, address and telephone number. LOL !

    Sorry, the lastest claimer is from North Carolina. There appears to be three other claimers as well. So, I just chose the latest claimer to date based on the evidence from a scientist from California. Only time will tell.
