Honor Flights offers complimentary flights for veterans to visit the city’s various war memorials, providing them with the opportunity to pay homage to their fellow servicemen and women.

This gesture aligns perfectly with the purpose of these memorials, which were built to honor the sacrifices and bravery of these heroes.

At Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in 2015, a significant group of veterans eagerly awaited their Honor Flight. Their joyous occasion was captured on video and shared on YouTube, where it has garnered over a million views to date.

During the wait, three women spontaneously began singing “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” and soon after, men in the group started rising to join them in dancing. What was once a tranquil atmosphere in the terminal quickly transformed into one of lively excitement.

A friend standing nearby kindly offered a cane to the first man who rose to dance, but he politely refused. With surprising grace and skill, he seamlessly transitioned into a full-fledged dance routine, as seen in the video.

As one YouTube commenter aptly noted, “You’re never too old.”

Inspired by the initial dancer’s boldness, many of his peers joined him, showcasing their moves. It makes one wonder if they were all seasoned dancers in their younger years, given the fluidity of their movements.

Merin Perryman and Paul Kopey, two of the dancers, are both 90 years old! Their lively performance not only captivated the nearby audience but also inspired millions of online viewers.

Witnessing these men, who had endured the hardships of war, come together with such enthusiasm and joy was truly moving for many. Even other airport visitors couldn’t resist joining in on the fun.
