Israeli ex-soldier is causing a stir with Facebook pictures

After being posted on Facebook, a photograph depicting a U.S. soldier kissing his boyfriend has become a success on the web and the topic of the day in multiple social networks.

So far it has received 14.000 "likes" in addition to 3,000 comments on the Facebook profile of the "group of gay soldiers."

The blogger Joe. My. God. Brandon Morgan quotes the soldier in the picture:

"To all who have responded positively, my partner and I want to thank you. Dalan, the giant in the picture, can not believe how many there likes so far. We did not do this to make us famous or something. We did it because we know just four years ago and we said what we feel about each other. And for those who have hated the picture ... let them hate. We had never been so happy, and if the problem was that we were in uniform . well if I had just arrived and Sergeant, Captain and Colonels did not care why should you care?

In short, thank you all for your love and support. I have received many friend requests on Facebook so I do not accept many requests, so if you did for this particular photograph, please let me know. "Says Brandon on facebook.
