America's Oldest Veteran Turns 112 Years Old Today

Happy birthday to the oldest living World War II veteran!

112 year old Richard Overton was born in 1906. He joined the U.S. Army in 1942 and served until the end of the war.   

Overton lives in the house that he built in Houston, TX 72 years ago. Obviously, a few things have changed in the neighborhood since the home was build. For instance, the street he lives on is now named Richard Overton Avenue!

And what is his secret to a long retirement life?? Overton sticks to his daily routine. He spends his days on his front porch smoking cigars and drinking whiskey.

"I feel fine every day," Overton told reporters outside his home. "No pain and no aches."

He is currently the oldest man living in the U.S.
