96-Year-Old Veteran Performs National Anthem On Harmonica At Baseball Game

96 year old veteran Pete Dupre plays a rendition of the national anthem on the harmonica

Recently, 96-year-old Pete DuPré shared a harmonica rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” at a New York Knicks game. It was the day before Veterans Day, which was perfect because Pete himself is a veteran. He wore a World War II Veteran hat during his performance. Pete is lovingly known as Harmonica Pete.

He shared a harmonica version of the national anthem at Madison Square Garden. Pete used to be a U.S. Army medic. Other members of the military were near Pete during his performance, holding the American flag. The crowd stood and cheered at the end of his performance.
