    Oldest WW2 veteran dies.

    112 year old Richard Overton was the oldest living WW2 veteran......he stated that the key to his long life was smoking cigars and drinking whiskey.

    This gets me thinking of a former neighbor who was at Pearl Harbor. He moved to another part of the neighborhood, but I have not seen him around in years. Have no way of knowing if he is still around, or in a nursing home or something.

    R.I.P. Mr Overton.

    Glad you were on our side.


    Wonder if that Thompson is a 'souvenir' ?
