In the past week, Richard Overton, America's oldest man – who happens to be World War II veteran! – turned 112 years old.
When asked the secret to his long life, Richard explained that he smokes 12 cigars a day (!!!) and that his favorite drink is whiskey and Coke.
He also enjoys waffles, pancakes, cinnamon rolls, ice cream and Dr. Pepper.
Richard, keep doing what works! And thank you for serving our country!
