God bless him.

Overton, identified by the General Land Office as the nation’s oldest veteran, was born in Bastrop County. He served in the Army during World War II in the South Pacific and now lives in Austin. He sold furniture in Austin after the war and later worked for the state Treasurer’s Office.

He drives and walks without a cane. During a television interview in March, he told a reporter that he doesn’t take medicine, smokes cigars every day and takes whiskey in his morning coffee. The key to living to his age, he said, is simply “staying out of trouble.”

The weekend is here, a story that doesn’t get one’s blood boiling was in order.

And I’m rethinking being a coffee purist and never having anything in it.

He is a veteran, not a vet (see your headline). He doesn't work with animals.

He wasn't young when he served. Shows us "How it's done". Salute!

click through to the story. there is a second man in it. my thanks to both men.

"The day's ceremony, sponsored by the General Land Office, also recognized Wallingford, who shared his experience in captivity in the Cambodian jungle as the audience listened in amazement.

The former Army sniper, now 65, alternately laughed and became emotional as he told the story of his imprisonment and triumphant return home."
