She will be buried next to her husband at Arlington Cemetery.

It was one of the most famous pictures of the 20th century, the moment Americans learned of the Japanese surrender. Greta Friedman, who was believed to be kissed by a U.S. Navy Sailor in New York’s Times Square in an iconic picture symbolizing the end of World War II, died last Thursday.

Greta Friedman will be laid to rest with her late husband, Mischa Elliot Friedman, who is buried at Arlington National Cemetery. Click the box below for the complete story.

Find a Grave

Since Arlington National Cemetery has been in the spotlight, now seems a good time to remind visitors about the Arlington National Cemetery app ANC Explorer, which can be downloaded on a smart phone or used through a web browser that will enable family members and the public to explore Arlington’s rich history. ANC Explorer will allow users to look up events, locate grave sites or other points of interest throughout the cemetery, generate front-and-back pictures of a marker or monument, and receive directions to these locations. In the future, ANC Explorer will offer features such as emergency and event notifications, restroom and water fountain locations, shuttle stops, and self guided tours.

A camera like the one that Apollo 11 left on the moon.

Today in 1969, American Neil Armstrong became the first person to walk on the moon. It is estimated that half a billion people watched his journey on TV. A camera similar to this one was used to film those first steps, but the original camera was left behind. #FCCGov #Telecom #TV #History #BuzzAldrin #Apollo (Photo/caption credit: National Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian Institution, NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration)
