Did Biden Administration Ban Iconic WWII Photo? What We Know

U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Denis McDonough has rescinded a proposed governmental ban of an iconic World War II-era photo.
The image, one of the most famous photographs celebrating U.S. victory, shows a U.S. Navy sailor embracing and kissing a total stranger on Victory over Japan Day in New York City’s Times Square on August 14, 1945. It was taken by journalist Alfred Eisenstaedt and has become synonymous with that war and military generation.
A recent memo by RimaAnn Nelson, assistant under secretary for health for operations at the VA, dated February 29 went viral and implied her request for a ban, saying in part that the photo should be removed from all VA health administration facilities
