This WWII vet can bust a move!!

During a layover at the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport , a World War II veteran passed the time and entertained passengers with a sudden display of dancing!
A group of veterans were awaiting their Honor Flight home, when three women began singing The Andrews Sisters’ “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.”
Encouraged by the lyrics “he started to dance” the sprightly old man jumps out of the crowd and starts to boogie. When someone offers him a walking cane he rejects it and instead, shows off some serious dance moves. His energy and enthusiasm gets the crowd of other vets joining in on the fun!
Honor Flights provide free flights to veterans who served in WWII, Korea and Vietnam by flying them to see the war memorials in Washington , DC built in their honor. It’s wonderful to see these brave veterans enjoying life in the moment after what must have been an emotional visit!
