"HOUSTON — A former Houstonian who was in one of the most iconic photos of WWII has died.
You’ve certainly seen the photo of Glenn Edward McDuffie. He’s the sailor grabbing and kissing a nurse in the middle of Times Square after finding out WWII was over. The photo was shot August 14, 1945.
We learned today of McDuffie’s passing today at the age of 86. He died on March 9. He was positively identified as the sailor in that photo back in 2007 after many men claimed it was them.”
