World War II Vet's Haunting National Anthem On Harmonica Wows Crowd

This might be the most patriotic thing you'll ever hear.

To mark the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack on Wednesday, World War II veteran Pete DuPre played the national anthem on his harmonica before a college basketball game in Honolulu.

DuPre, reportedly 97, blew a plaintive cry of remembrance that brought down the house. Seton Hall then defeated Cal, 60-57, in the Pearl Harbor Invitational, but DuPre may have stolen the show.

He served as a medic during the Battle of the Bulge and every note echoed his patriotism.

Hats off to you, Pete DuPre.
