First same-sex naval kiss - level 1

This news is about the Canadian Navy. When a ship comes back, people choose one marine. He leaves the ship first. His girlfriend or wife waits for him. They meet and kiss. This is the naval first kiss.

Now it is 2016, and the Canadian Navy supports gay marines. When one ship returns, people choose a gay marine. His partner waits for him. He is also a marine. They kiss.

Difficult words: the navy (part of the army which is at sea), marine (somebody who serves at the navy), support (to help, to be friendly about something).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
