WWII's "Kissing Sailor" Passes at Age 95

Ενημερώθηκε: 7 Ιαν 2020

George Mendonsa, the sailor in one of the most popular photographs published by Life magazine, has passed away February 20, 2019, at age 95.

Pictured kissing Greta Zimmer Friedman , this picture by Alfred Eisenstaed was taken in Times Square, as New York celebrated the end of World War II, VJ Day, August 15, 1945.

Pray for this quartermaster on USS The Sullivans and his family, and thank a veteran today.
