Couple of 67 years re-enact historic Times Square kiss for V-J Day

August 15th, 2014

Sydnor and Harriette Thompson, who have been married for 67 years, struck a pose next to a replica statue based on the photograph taken in New York City on 14 August 1945, the same day Japan surrendered and brought the war to an end.

Mr Thompson said the greatest thing he ever did was marrying his wife.

The event marked the start of a year-long effort to boost awareness of Victory-over-Japan Day, which reaches its 70th anniversary next year.
