2 women share 1st kiss after US Navy ship returns to Virginia, a 1st since repeal of ban
By The Associated Press

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) ' A Navy tradition has caught up with the repeal of the "don't ask, don't tell" rule on gays serving openly in the U.S. military.

The Navy said two women shared the coveted "first kiss" Wednesday when the USS Oak Hill returned home to its Virginia base.

Marissa Gaeta of Pacerville, Calif., descended from the ship and shared a quick kiss with her partner, Citlalic (SEET-lah-leek) Snell of Los Angeles. The crowd screamed and waved Navy flags around them.



Both women are fire controlmen in the Navy. They met at training school and have been dating for two years.

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.
