Video: life lessons from a 111 year old WWII veteran


At 111 years old (the video is a few years old,) Richard Overton is the oldest living World War II veteran. He still drinks whiskey, smoke stogies and has lived in the same house, which he bought after coming home from war, since 1945. In this short film, Overton talks about his long life and along the way, extols a few important life lessons. My take away: for a long life, eat a shit-ton of soup and butter pecan ice cream.
