One of the most famous photographs by Alfred Eisenstaedt of an American sailor kissing a young woman in 1945 will now hang in the VA Medical Center. Today, the center will hold a ceremony to accept 'VJ in Times Square' from Houstonian Glenn McDuffie. McDuffie is the sailor kissing the nurse in the middle of Times Square after finding out the war was over.

McDuffie says he wants to share a piece of history with the veterans and visitors at the VA.
