Times Square Iconic Kiss

August 15 is 60th anniversary of VJ Day (Victory over Japan Day).

As the U.S. servicemen returned home a young jubilant sailor clutched a white-uniformed nurse in a back bending passionate kiss to vent his homecoming.

The iconic image was captured by Life magazine photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt.

Today, Edith Shain, the 86 year old woman who claims to be that young nurse posed with a statue of the photograph which will be placed in Times Square for the next few days.
