109-Year-Old Veteran and His Secrets to Life Will Make You Smile

Austin, TX...We ran this little piece during our webcast this morning. Although he passed away in 2018 at the tender age of 112 his wisdom lives on. All of us should watch this every few months. The video is from National Geographic. "Meet Richard Overton, America's oldest veteran. In this lively short film by Matt Cooper and Rocky Conly, hear the whiskey-drinking, cigar-smoking supercentenarian reveal his secrets to a long life."

Wow! I'm in awe! What a fine example of humanity and think about all the things he has done, seen, heard, and experience in those 112 years. Imagine that being born in the year 1906 I believe. Thank you for being my role model Mr. Overton, Steven R Smith
