America's Oldest Living Veteran

Well, garden dwellers, I've got about a dozen tabs open. Time to share! :)


This properly belonged on the Veterans Day thread, I suppose.

Richard Overton, America’s oldest living veteran still drives, smokes cigars, and would like to get married again. At 108. Born in Bastrop County, Texas on May 11, 1906, he served at Pearl Harbor, Okinawa, and Iwo Jima. during WW II as a member of the U.S. Army. “I was shot over my head, between my legs, around my ears, and everything, but it wasn't my day to go."
