At 109 years old, Richard Overton is America's oldest surviving WWII veteran and he's an avid gun enthusiast to boot. Richard credits cigars and whiskey when it comes to his longevity, along with his ability to defend himself with his unique firearm collection. "A pistol is my favorite gun" Richard says while he gives a tour of his Austin, TX home. Richards collection also includes a Browning Auto-5, one of the first ever successful semi-auto's.

When asked what he wanted for his birthday, Richard smiled and replied with "Another good happy day." Let's hope Richard has many more happy days, God bless you sir and thank you for your service to our country!
