WWII Veterans ‘Boogie Woogie’ At An Airport Terminal And Make Everyone’s Day
Typically, airports are a drag, but one airport terminal at Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C. became a place to let loose and “boogie-woogie” – all thanks to a singing trio a couple of dancing World War II veterans!
While waiting to board an Honor Flight, (“a service that provides free flights to veterans so that they can tour the war memorials in the nation’s capital,”) two WWII veterans unexpectedly jumped out of their seats! Then they danced, twirled and sang along with a talented singing trio called Three Ladies of Liberty. These fabulous ladies entertained the veterans by singing beloved patriotic tunes, such as the treasured 1940’s Anderson Sisters’ hit “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.”
To their surprise, the veterans, Marin Perryman and Paul Kopey, who were both in their 90s at the time, became viral sensations! Not only did the crowd at the airport terminal love them, but millions of fans did too! “You’re simply never too old….” commented one fan.
