"We've known each other for four years, but we only just started going out this last deployment," explains Morgan. "And I've known how I've felt about him - ever since we've met but had to keep it down."

"Apparently this photo has been dubbed 'The Kiss Seen or Heard ‘Round the World' and is breaking barriers," says Morgan. "People feel more confident to live their own life and be truthful to who they know they are."
The couple started dating via Facebook two months ago – while Morgan was on his third overseas deployment in four years.
"That's why that kiss was so crazy. It was the first kiss!" says Wells.
