WWII vets cut a rug at Reagan National (Video)

WASHINGTON — A pair of World War II veterans went off the proverbial hook at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport recently.

A group of veterans who were part of an Honor Flight were waiting in Reagan National Airport last month when a group of singers sent to entertain them broke into The Andrews Sisters’ 1940s hit “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” the Daily Mail reports.

That did it.

It took a while for the first one to get out of his chair, but once he began dancing he made up for lost time. Another veteran (the YouTube uploader identifies them as Marin Perryman and Paul Kopey, but doesn’t say which is which) went straight for the ladies and began to show his own moves.

It’s heartwarming; it’s sweet, and it’s a little embarrassing to those who may be half their ages and have less than half their skills.
