The World War II veteran is waiting for a plane at the Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C. Then a trio of three women singers start harmonizing a song the Andrews Sisters made famous, “The Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”. Music and memories set his heart thumping, his legs moving, and he is up and dancing.
Any stiffness his bones may be feeling disappears as he swings to the beat. Someone tries to give him his cane, but he ignores it. Another vet joins the singers and is soon invited to dance by a young woman with the veterans. The first vet taps him on the shoulder and takes over. You can feel the smiles spread.
The whole thing is only a couple minutes long, but it is 2:15 full of life, memories, and joy.
