Navy sailor Jonathan Jewell was greeted with a homecoming kiss from his boyfriend Sean Sutton on Friday, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported.

Sutton greeted his boyfriend of 2 years as he returned from a seven month deployment aboard the USS John C. Stennis. The last Navy air mission over Iraq was launched from the aircraft carrier. It returned to port in Bremerton, Washington.

Jewell and Sutton become the third gay military couple to make headlines with a homecoming kiss.

In December, Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta of Placerville, California purchased 50 $1 tickets for the “first” raffle to win the privilege of being the first to exit the returning USS Oak Hill as it docked in Virginia Beach after 80 days at sea.

Gaeta and her partner, Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell of Los Angeles, shared the coveted “first kiss” on the pier as a crowd cheered and waved flags around them.

The kisses wouldn't have been possible only last year, before the military repealed its “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” policy which barred gay and bisexual troops from serving openly.

A picture and a link to the story was posted on Obama's re-election blog ( along with the caption: “President Obama signed the repeal of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' into law one year ago today.”

Last month, a homecoming kiss between Marine Sargent Brandon Morgan and his partner Dalan Wells went viral on Facebook.
