Lesbian Wins Right to First Kiss from Raffle

2 women share 1st kiss at US Navy ship's return
A Navy tradition caught up with the repeal of the U.S. military's "don't ask, don't tell" rule on Wednesday when two women sailors became the first to share the coveted "first kiss" on the pier after one of them returned from 80 days at sea.

Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta of Placerville, California, descended from the USS Oak Hill amphibious landing ship and shared a quick kiss in the rain with her partner, Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell of Los Angeles.

Gaeta, 23, wore her Navy dress uniform while Snell, 22, wore a black leather jacket, scarf and blue jeans. The crowd screamed and waved flags around them.

"It's something new, that's for sure," Gaeta told reporters after the kiss. "It's nice to be able to be myself. It's been a long time coming."
Fortunately for us, the scene was recorded, and is available on Youtube:

I found this at Ace's.  Ace accuses unknown persons of conspiracy, but a commenter suggests:
Conspiracy, no. Every other raffle participant putting the winner name on the raffle slip to get to watch that.....I am not ruling that out yet.
I think the Navy set this up for recruiting purposes...
