On August 14, 1945, Alfred Eisenstaedt took a picture of a sailor kissing a nurse in Times Square, minutes after they heard of Japan's surrender to the United States. Two weeks later LIFE magazine published that image. It became one of the most famous WWII photographs in history (and the most celebrated photograph ever published in the world's dominant photo-journal), a cherished reminder of what it felt like for the war to finally be over. Everyone who saw the picture wanted to know more about the nurse and sailor, but Eisenstaedt had no information and a search for the mysterious couple's identity took on a dimension of its own. In 1979 Eisenstaedt thought he had found the long lost nurse. And as far as almost everyone could determine, he had. For the next thirty years Edith Shain was known as the woman in the photo of V-J Day, 1945, Times Square. In 1980 LIFE attempted to determine the sailor's identity . Many aging warriors stepped forward with claims, and experts weighed in to support one candidate over another. Chaos ensued.
For almost two decades Lawrence Verria and George Galdorisi were intrigued by the controversy surrounding the identity of the two principals in Eisenstaedt's most famous photograph and collected evidence that began to shed light on this mystery. Unraveling years of misinformation and controversy, their findings propelled one claimant's case far ahead of the others and, at the same time, dethroned the supposed kissed nurse when another candidate's claim proved more credible. With this book, the authors solve the 67-year-old mystery by providing irrefutable proof to identify the couple in Eisenstaedt's photo. It is the first time the whole truth behind the celebrated picture has been revealed.
Man when I was growing up, if I left a sucker on the cofee table, my mother would kick my ass.

Ahh, Heather Graham. Sure she may be a little crazy but nobody rocks a red dress like her. And nobody rocks a blue dress like her. And now nobody rocks the hour long orgasm like her.
uhhhhh, hey Ernie, you might want to let charlie know that when American Embassies cross into the relm known as Hostile Fire Zones like Benghazi did a long time ago, Marine security goes out the window. Embassy security becomes part of USSOC and these "security details" employ some REAL badasses, not hollywood types. As for this tragedy, it killed me when hillary (the cunt) said this. That should have awaken Americans. The Lt.
Remember teen mom Farrah Abraham's sex tape? Well now you can buy the bikini that she (very briefly) wore in that video. You know, if that's your thing, creeper.
A musical fountain is a type of animated fountain for entertainment purposes that creates an aesthetic design including three-dimensional images. This is achieved by employing the effects of timed sound waves and timed light (including laser) against water particles. The water refracts and reflects the light, and in doing so, three-dimensional images can be produced. Installations can be large scale, employing hundreds of water jets and lights, and costing into the millions of dollars, or in smaller household forms, where a budget of one thousand dollars is feasible. Musical features tend to be complex, and require a degree of mechanical, hydraulic, electrical, and electronic components out of view that might be as impressive to its audience as the show itself.
Huh. So this is turning into a thing, I guess. Oldest and most busted: Toronto Blue Jays' JA Happ takes a line drive to the head. Not to be outdone, Toronto Maple Leafs' defenseman Mark Fraser takes a slap shot to the face. Now the new hotness: Washington Nationals' Bryce Harper takes a wall to the face. Or his face ot the wall? Or whatever.
A jon boat is a flat-bottomed boat constructed of aluminum, fiberglass, or wood with one, two, or three bench seats. They are particularly useful for hunting due to the greater stability as compared to a V-hull boat. They are quite suitable for fishing as well. Because the hull of a jon boat is nearly flat, it tends to ride over the waves rather than cut through them as a V-hull might, thus limiting the use of the boat to calmer waters. Jon boats typically have a transom onto which an outboard motor can be mounted. They are simple and easy to maintain, and inexpensive with many options to upgrade. Jon boats with beefed up aluminum construction, and powered by jet-drive outboards, are capable of operating in extremely shallow water and thus are used frequently in rocky rivers and areas with submerged obstructions such as oyster bars and coral.
Wow, that lady sure has a lot of tattoos.
