Wonderful that they want to reach out to younger veterans. Certainly there is a need, but sadly, hosting an "... event [that] would have big band music and be in the style of the USO dances held in the past." ain't gonna do it for warriors in their 20s and 30s my friends.
Maybe if you invited Iraq, Afghanistan or Somalia veterans and asked them to tell you what it was like for them over there and how it was to come home to a nation blissfully untouched by what they had to see and do, you might get some takers.
