Had a pretty incredible morning hanging out in East Austin with the oldest living WWII vet Richard “Ritchy” Overton.
He is such an inspiring man. He still drives his Ford truck & his 1971 Monte Carlo that he bought new. Drinks Whiskey and smokes cigars every day. he’s Such an Amazing American. I could have stayed and talked all day.
I took by Jesse Jr’s 1943 M1 Garrand for him to check out (That’s what he carried as an Army sharp shooter) He swore it was way heavier in WWII..
Oh Yea.. He’s 107 and Turns 108 This Saturday!
Might have to drop off a bottle of Makers Mark.
