Plans are being made for a special ‘Ceremony to Honor’ along with a ‘40s-style USO dance at Naval Air Station Corpus Christi, Bay Club. The event will be held on Sept. 22, at 6:30 p.m. and will feature a swing band, along with dozens of young couples dressed in vintage WWII uniforms and ‘40s attire—all designed to honor the lives of “the greatest generation.”

WWII veterans and their families, including surviving widows of vets from the Second World War, along with Korean veterans, are encouraged to participate in this special celebration with USO South Texas.

The ‘Ceremony to Honor’ along with the dance at the Bay Club follows a private film shoot for the documentary, Anchored, which chronicles the life of Dewey Holden of Aransas Pass, Texas. He met his wife Dorothy Smith at a USO dance in Mobile, Alabama in January of 1942, while serving in the U.S. Coast Guard.  The family of Mr. Holden is producing the film in his honor, and is pleased to be aiding the Bay Club in hosting the USO dance on Saturday night to honor all WWII veterans.
