VIDEO: WWII veteran plays national anthem on harmonica


An inspiring moment Sunday before the U.S. women’s soccer team game against Mexico. 

96-year-old World War II veteran Pete Dupre performed the national anthem on his harmonica. 

And he may have stolen the show! 

During World War II, Dupre, who’s also known as “Harmonica Pete,” served as a medic in the 114th General Hospital unit in Kidderminster, England. 

Sunday’s game saw the U.S. with a win over Mexico 3-0.

It was the team’s final tuneup ahead of next month’s World Cup in France.
