Naval officials said it was the first time on record that a same-sex couple was chosen to kiss first upon a ship’s return. Both women are fire controlmen in the Navy. They met at training school and have been dating for two years.
Marissa Gaeta descended from the ship and shared a quick kiss with her partner, Citlalic Snell. The crowd screamed and waved Navy flags around them.
Hope springs eternal.
