The Navy marked the long-time-coming shedding of the military’s antiquated “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy when two female sailors shared the first kiss on the dock today after one came back home following a deployment.

The two women in question are Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta of Placerville, Calif., and Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell of Los Angeles. The couple that gets to have the first kiss is apparently chosen through a lottery system of $1 per ticket, and Gaeta bought 50.
