NEW YORK (NY) - Couples gathered in Times Square to reenact the famous kiss at the end of World War II.

A 25-foot sculpture depicting the famous photo taken of a sailor kissing a white-uniformed nurse towered over dozens of couples for the commemoration of the end of the war in New York City.

Ray and Ellie Williams travelled from their home in Georgia to kick-off the re-enactment of the famous kiss. Both served in the Navy and married the day after V-J Day.

Ray Williams said he and his wife are "deeply honored and privileged" to represent the "greatest generation" at the celebration.
