SAN DIEGO (NBC/KNSD) - It started as simply a photograph of a sailor kissing a nurse at the end of World War II in 1945.
Now what may just be the most famous kiss in U.S. history has a new home in California.
After a 2,800-mile trip that began in New Jersey, the newly cast bronze statue of the salient smooch arrived in San Diego Monday morning.
The 25-foot-tall, 15,000-pound piece of art cost $1 million to make and replaces a form-core version.
This new bronze version will be installed along San Diego's waterfront in the next couple days.
Police are investigating a report of a home invasion, but say there are inconsistencies.
A Kalamazoo County sheriff's deputy will not face criminal sexual conduct charges.
A candlelight vigil was held Wednesday night for an innocent bystander who was shot and killed in October.
