I haven't heard any details, but saw someone post on twitter that John Moon, the Leatherneck centenarian, veteran, and part-time national anthem singer, has passed away. I'll post more info as soon as I see/hear it.

Battle of "Iowa Jima"? Error of commission. RIP Mr. Moon. You brought tears to my eyes singing that National Anthem.
