His Plane Was Delayed so This WWII Veteran Decided to Bust Out Some Moves. Like a Boss!

You’re never too old to dance! Dick Van Dyke made this point clear a couple of months ago when the 89-year-old entertainer danced with his wife. The same can be said about this WWII veteran that had to wait because of a plane delay at Reagan National Airport. Then he heard a song, “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”, and got the urge to dance!
