_____________________________________________

We had a blast at the new years party they held. It was a top notch event. The only gripe that I had was the food. But they have hired a new caterer. We had so much fun, and it was an amazing feeling being dressed in period attire and dancing the night away on a ship that survived during the period these styles of clothing and music were at their peak.

I really got to thinking that if a ghost was to materialize no one would ever know..  lol.  If you enjoy old music, great dancing, and a great atmosphere you have to make it to this event! I am going for sure!!! I will dress in my grandfather’s WWII Army uniform again. I often wonder how many times he danced in his uniform. I have a photo of him from when he was at  a club near by Fort Bragg in North Carolina wearing the uniform.

My Grampa Johnson

Unfortunately I didn’t get the honor to meet him before he passed. When I wear his uniform I feel so proud. It is an honor to wear his uniform. Its the only thing that I really have from him. So this is my way of paying tribute to him and remembering him. I never met him but I am damn proud to be his grandson.

If you are interested in going to the event you must purchase tickets via their website: USS Hornet Big Band Dance

Hope to see you there!
