Remembering Richard Overton, Austin man and America’s oldest World War II vet


Recommended Posts

"On May 11, 1906, Richard Arvin Overton was born in Bastrop County, Texas. Back then the average life expectancy was only 47 years. That was one of many barriers Overton shattered.

In 1940, Overton joined the Army as a member of the 188th Engineer Aviation Battalion."
