A short time ago, a small group of World War 2 veterans were quietly waiting for their flight at Reagan International Airport, when something magical took place.

Someone decided to play some old-time music from the 1940’s, and suddenly, as if a vail was lifted and a curtain pulled back, the solders instantly reverted back to a time when they were young, agile and filled with life.

The following video shows us this unique transformation in a beautiful and wonderful way and the tremendous power of music.

    It is true – we don’t really age on the inside… It’s just the flesh and bones that kind of get blurred with time passing…

    Lovely moment!

    This brings back the days of dancing at the Hollywood Palladium to the big bands with servicemen dates. It was the last dance for many of them before they were shipped off to the Pacific.
