Obama Meets With The Oldest Living American Veteran: A Badass 107-Year-Old

President Barack Obama met with Richard Overton, the oldest living veteran, at the White House on Monday.

Overton, who is 107 years old, was honored by the president in a Veteran's Day speech at Arlington National Cemetery. Overton told Fox News in May he takes no medicine except for aspirin, drinks whiskey with his morning coffee and still smokes up to 12 cigars a day.
