How do you live 109 years? I am not sure any of us actually know the answer; not even Richard Overton. But I do believe that however long you live, it is on you to ensure that you LIVE your years. That's gotta be the lesson of Mr. Overton's life for us.
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.
