If there was any doubt that "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is now a thing of the past, just check out the photo to the left -- the picture of a soldier giving his boyfriend the traditional "welcome home" kiss has gone viral.

The Daily Mail reports that the photo shows Sgt. Brandon Morgan coming back from a tour of duty in Afghanistan and being greeted by his boyfriend in Hawaii with a big kiss.

The photo was posted on the Gay Marines Facebook page over the weekend and has already received 18,000 "likes" and 4,000 comments.

This couple is following in the footsteps of a lesbian couple which made international headlines last year for the first-ever recorded gay "welcome home" kiss.
