Glenn McDuffie, Sailor Kissing Nurse in WWII Photo, Dies at 86.
After WWII, McDuffie, who was born in North Carolina and moved to Houston in 1960, became a mail carrier and semi-professional baseball player. But his life became more exciting about six years ago when Houston Police Department forensic artist Lois Gibson was able to identify him as the young man leaning over the woman in his arms to kiss her.
… And so began a whirlwind lifestyle of going to air shows, gun shows, fundraisers and parties to tell his story. Women would pay $10 to take a picture kissing him on the cheek, Gibson said.
"He would make money and kiss women," Gibson said. "He had the most glamorous life of any 80 year old."
