Richard Arvin Overton, who just died on 27 DEC 2018, was not only the oldest living World War 2 veteran in the US, but was also the oldest man in the United States at the time of his death at 112 years of age. The grandson of a slave, he served with distinction in the military from September 1940 until October 1945.



When asked the secret of his longevity, he attributed it to smoking 8 cigars a day, and adding whiskey to his morning coffee.

Hats off to Richard Overton.
