On Sunday, World War II veteran Pete Dupre, 96, brought the house down at Red Bull Arena Sunday as he gave his rendition of the National Anthem on a harmonica in front of 26,332 soccer fans.
Red Bull Arena in Harrison, NJ was filled to capacity to watch an exhibition soccer match between the U.S. women’s national team and Mexico. The performance was beautiful!
“During WWII, DuPre served as a medic in the 114th General Hospital Unit in Kidderminster, England. At age 17, both of his parents had already died, making him the acting patriarch of a five-person family. Within a year, Pete had enlisted in the Army serving three years overseas during which time he treated wounded servicemen from all areas of Europe,” [NJ.com]
