    Default Oldest Living WWII VET (111) Still Enjoys His Whiskey And Cigars

    At 111, Oldest Living WWII Veteran Still Enjoys His Whiskey and Cigars

    So much for science and the health studies.
    Richard Overton has seen much during his storied life, which began on May 11, 1906, the same year President Theodore Roosevelt won the Nobel Peace Prize.

    At 111 years old, Overton is a supercentenarian, staking claim to the title of being the oldest verified living WWII veteran and the oldest man in all 50 states. He has met President Barack Obama, been honored by the San Antonio Spurs with a custom jersey, and even has had a street named after him. But through it all, Overton remains a humble man who simply likes to spend his days sitting on the porch of his Austin, Texas, home, enjoying two of his favorite things: whiskey and cigars.
    “I smoke at least 12 cigars a day on my front porch,” Overton tells PEOPLE. “And most of my whiskey is from Tennessee.”
    I'm hopin' I don't live that long...must be some kind of curse.
