Aerial shots of ships returning from WWII at capacity; military personnel are sitting shoulder to shoulder on the deck. MS of rippling American flag with ship and Manhattan in the background. MS of two men lifting giddy female medic up. XLS of densely crowded Manhattan street, confetti flying. MS of ecstatic woman flailing arms atop man's shoulders. Someone waves the US flag above the street. Sailors and young women stand above the crowd cheering. Men throwing papers in the air. MS of sailor passionately kissing woman.
