The photo, taken by legendary photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt, was published in Life magazine a few weeks later. But the identities of the two people were a mystery.
It was not until 1980 when both Friedman and George Mendonsa, the sailor in the photo, were determined to be the couple in the photo, CNN added. (IANS)
