Man Known as “Kissing Sailor” in WWII-era Photo Dies

Man known as kissing sailor in WWII-era picture dies | Fox News.

Remember the famous photo of the sailor kissing a nurse in the streets of New York at the end of WWII?  The man’s name was Glen McDuffie and he died this week at age 86.  There has been controversy over the identification of the man and woman in the photo; as no names were recorded the day the photo was taken.  The photographer died some time ago.  A forensic artist determined with high accuracy that Glen McDuffie was the man in the photo.  It was important to Glen for the world to know he was the man in the photo and thankfully, this was made known before his death.
