Sgt Brandon Morgan, an openly gay marine from Oakdale (California), has caused a stir as he shared a traditional home-coming kiss with his boyfriend Dalan Wells in Hawaii. The men locked lips after they were reunited following the end of Morgan’s Afghanistan tour with US Marines –

The pair seem to have followed in the footsteps of Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta of California and Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell of Los Angeles who in December became the first lesbian couple to share the traditional home coming first kiss.
