"We're super grateful because he hasn't been out the house in so long.
All these 'pretty women' get to come around him. He gets to hand out
flowers and just be himself. He hasn't been himself a while.
So, he's super happy."
Sonnier was serving in the U.S. Navy when
the Pearl Harbor attacks happened.
He then served during World War II.
He said he regretted not being able to physically
dance but enjoyed the event nonetheless.
"It feels good to be with all these beautiful women."
