gay-marineOPENLY gay US Marine Sgt Brandon Morgan leapt into the arms of his boyfriend for a home-coming kiss after returning from the Afghan war zone.

The resulting photograph of the gay lovers – which flies in the face of the traditional 'Don't Ask, Dont' Tell' military line on homosexuality in the ranks – created an internet sensation.

Gay websites were awash with emotional responses to the photo, while slightly less forward-thinking forums took a somewhat darker view.

Sgt Morgan of Oakdale, California, was captured as he jumped into the arms of boyfriend, reported by International Business Times to be called Dalan Wells.

The pair locked lips in Hawaii - a longstanding tradition of military personnel is to share  the ‘first kiss’ with their partners on returning home from operational tour.

The picture went viral after being posted on the Gay Marines Facebook page and popular gay blogs Joe.My.God and Towleroad.

‘Welcome home and thank you for your service!’ wrote one commenter. ‘This is an awesome picture! Love knows no gender, race, creed or sexual preference.’
