Richard Overton turned 109 on Monday, May 11, 2015. This makes him America’s oldest surviving World War II veteran.
I recently had the honor of visiting with Richard at his home in Austin, Texas. 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 to senators to celebrities.
I wanted to do something different with Richard and since this is Guns.com, I asked him to show me some of his own personal firearms.
Happy birthday Richard and God bless you from all of us living in the free world.
