Time to celebrate.
WWII veteran, Richard Overton, is America’s oldest veteran. Today he turned 112 years old. 112. Think about that.
National Geographic did an awesome short film on Richard a couple years back that I highly recommend you watch. He states that he smokes 12 cigars a day and drinks 4 cups of whiskey in the morning. That’s the key to a long life, according to Richard. I love this man.
In Overton’s lifetime, he’s seen the following tech advancements (ABC):
The electric washing machine
Thank you for your service Mr. Overton, and for being one of a kind.
“I just sit there and smoke sometimes 12 cigars a day. Maybe sometimes more than that. I drink about four cups of coffee in the morning. This morning I drank about that much whiskey.”
