May God Bless Our Nation's Oldest Veteran

Our Nation's oldest veteran - a Texan - celebrates his 107th Memorial Day. God Bless him.

 
Overton credits his longevity to aspirin, which he takes daily, and the relatively stress-free life he’s enjoyed since getting out of the service in October 1945. He then worked at local furniture stores before taking a position with the Texas Treasury Department in Austin. He married twice but never fathered any children and still attends church every Sunday.
