109YR. OLD BAD-ASS: Oldest Living Vet Smokes Cigars, Drinks Whiskey & LOVES GUNS!

By Ben Philippi,

Today, May 11, 2015 is Richard Overton’s 109th birthday. This makes him America’s oldest surviving World War Two Veteran.

I recently had the honor of visiting with Richard at his home in Austin, Texas. Now, he credits his health and longevity to smoking cigars, drinking whiskey and being able to defend himself and his country with firearms.

He’s hung out with everyone from the president and senators and celebrities.

I wanted to do something different with Richard and since this is, I asked him to show me some of his own personal firearms.

And since it’s Richard’s birthday, I had one more question for him.

Happy birthday Richard and God bless you from all of us living in the free world.
