Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta and her girlfriend of two years, Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell!
As part of Navy tradition, the crew of Oak Hill and the ship’s family readiness group sold $1 raffle tickets for a chance to win the first homecoming kiss when the ship docked in Virginia Beach after being at sea for several months. Petty Officer Marissa bought 50 tickets, which apparently isn’t a lot, and by the ginger grace of Rojo Caliente, her ticket was picked on Monday. So for the first time in Navy history, two gayelles made mouth love on the docks as the crowd cheered (and everyone got the most patriotic boners ever).
Petty Officer Marissa told the Virginian-Pilot afterward that it’s nice she can be herself now that Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell has officially been snuffed out and the acronym DADT can go back to standing for better things like Dogs And Dogs Tapdancing (or some shit). Here’s a little interview with Petty Officer Marissa and Petty Officer Citlalic that will take you on a prideful ride down a flannel rainbow to YES!!!
And Petty Officer Melissa’s girlfriend’s name is Citlalic Snell. CITLALIC SNELL! She has the name of a Hunger Games character or a metallic paint sold at Sherwin-Williams.
