96-year-old WWII vet wows NJ stadium by playing national anthem on harmonica

A New Jersey stadium went wild on Sunday when a 96-year-old played a touching rendition of the National Anthem on his harmonica ahead of Memorial Day.

Pete DuPre played the tune at halftime during the U.S. women’s national soccer team’s USWNT match against Mexico at Red Bull Arena in Harrington.

DuPre, whose musical abilities have earned him the nickname “Harmonica Pete,” has reportedly played the national anthem live before.
