Vj Day, Under the statue of 26 feet built in the middle of Times Square, hundreds of people gathered yesterday in costumes to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the end of World War II, and the anniversary of a famous kiss. Couples staged the photo of Life magazine nurse Edith Shain be kissed by a sailor on the day of victory in the countdown of “3,2,1, Kiss!”
Veterans of World War II and their families also met some with photographs of relatives who died in the war. Rocco Moretto, 86, said: “I want to keep alive that day,” and kissed her friend and the Women’s Army Corps veteran Margie Zwick. He said of the kiss, it was amazing. It’s been a long time. “Gloria Bullard said he was in a nurses training school in 1945, and they kissed” a dozen times “in Times Square on VJ Day.” My uniform was a mess. My cuffs were off. I lost my twins. It was just wonderful. “
