KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Richard Overton is not only America's oldest living man, he's also the oldest living veteran.

Overton was born in Bastrop County, Oklahoma, when it wasn't yet a state, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

These days, Overton's life is less combative.

He served in the South Pacific from 1940 through 1945, including stops in Hawaii, Guam, Palau and Iwo Jima during World War II.

The veteran celebrated his birthday Friday from his home in East Austin, where he's lived since returning from WWII. His home is located on a street now named after him-Richard Overton Avenue.


Overturn, who has achieved previous President Barack Obama and former Texas Governor Rick Perry, among other notable people, necessitates 24/7 healthcare, the Austin American Statesman claimed.

In 2017, Overton's family set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for his in-home care, which has raised more than $234,000.

But what has kept Overton going these 111 years?

Another friend, Chaka Dada of the hip-hop group Riders Against the Storm, had 112 shirts made with the words Overton told to Steve Harvey when the pair met: "Keep living, don't die".
