The famed kissing nurse in the iconic 1945 Times Square photograph is back in New York to serve as a grand marshal in Tuesday's Veterans Day Parade.
More than six decades after her image thrilled a nation, 90-year-old Edith Shain even got a kiss from another young man in uniform Sunday.

Nick Mayo, 25, who plays sailor Richard West in the Lincoln Center production of "South Pacific," gave Shain a smooch - and a long dip backstage.
Remembering that celebratory kiss, Shain, who was a nurse in the now-demolished Doctors Hospital on the East Side, said she regretted never getting the dashing sailor's number.
"In retrospect, I should have said, 'Hey, wait a minute!'" the spry woman laughed.
Well, Edith, it's not too late. Turns out the guy who kissed you is Carl Muscarello, at the time a Middle Village boy. He lives in Florida now.
