Richard Overton of Austin, Texas is the oldest living veteran in America. He served in the Army in the South Pacific during World War Two, from 1942 to 1945. And he turns 109-YEARS-OLD next Monday.

So clearly he’s led a healthy life of moderation and balance. Check out his routine . . .

He still puts whiskey in his morning coffee . . . drinks a little more whiskey at night to help him sleep . . . and still smokes at least twelve cigars a DAY. He’s been smoking them since he was 18 . . . so 91 YEARS.

His friends and family threw him a birthday party last weekend, and went all out for it. His neighbor had a local burger joint cater it, and also managed to get President Obama to write him a letter.

Richard says the secret to a long life is to never stop moving . . . keep drinking whiskey . . . and keep smoking cigars. And he hopes everyone who was at his party this year can make it back next year for his 110th.
