There are so many uplifting stories that have come out of the wars and conflicts our amazing veterans have been a part of over the years. On this day, Veteran's Day, we honor those who served in our armed forces and we say a well deserved "thank you" to them. I'd also like to celebrate a heartwarming video from a Midwestern veteran - one that proves we can still have uplifting stories from our veterans long after they served their country.

A 97-year old Waukesha, Wisconsin loves to dance

While this is not a brand new video, it's still very much worth sharing. In April 2020, during the early days of a dark pandemic, World War II Navy pilot Chuck Franzke, then 97 years young, shared a video of himself emerging from the home he shares with his wife, and dancing to Justin Timberlake's smash hit "Can't Stop the Feeling". Like most of us, Franzke was social distancing last April and still had the urge to get up and do something. So, he did! And in doing so, he spread cheer that's worth sharing once again on this Veteran's Day 2021.

At 97, it was far from a new idea for Franzke. In 2017, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel did a piece on the then 95-year-old Franzke's love for movin' and groovin'. His wife, who is now in her mid 90's, is also featured.

For many of us, myself included, the thought of being cooped up at home is horrifying. Many of our seniors and veterans, had to go so long without seeing loved ones. Chuck Franzke made the best of it, and I'm sure continues to dance on this Veteran's Day.

Small Town Iowa: Road Trip to Pella - Photos

When you mention Pella, most people say "they have all the tulips right?" Where that would be correct, there is so much more to this town. Pella is also home to two manufacturing companies, a college, the largest working windmill in the U.S. and it's the boyhood home of the legendary Wyatt Earp. Now, let's go on a virtual tour of this excellent example of picturesque small-town Iowa.

LOOK: 50 famous memes and what they mean

With the infinite number of memes scattered across the internet, it's hard to keep track. Just when you've grasped the meaning of one hilarious meme, it has already become old news and replaced by something equally as enigmatic. Online forums like Tumblr, Twitter, 4chan, and Reddit are responsible for a majority of meme infections, and with the constant posting and sharing, finding the source of an original meme is easier said than done. Stacker hunted through internet resources, pop culture publications, and databases like Know Your Meme to find 50 different memes and what they mean. While the almost self-replicating nature of these vague symbols can get exhausting, memes in their essence can also bring people closer together—as long as they have internet access.
