These are the hands of Richard Overton. He lived to be 112 years old. He attributed his longevity to "smoking cigars and drinking whiskey-stiffened coffee." He was the oldest surviving U.S. WWII Veteran. He served in the Pacific and was awarded the Combat Infantry Badge and Bronze Star, He died in 2018. On this day of the end of the first war to end all wars, let's take a moment to remember those not with us. BOTL and not.All gave some; some gave all. Rest easy now.

Happy Veterans Day to all that give some much for us to enjoy our way of life.

Richard was featured at least once a year towards the end of his life (last 5ish years) in cigar, and mainstream news publications. (Cigar aficionado, GMA) Always amazed me how much he enjoyed life and how long he was able to live it.

Yes, he did enjoy life, a true example to follow for cigar smokers and non-smokers alike.
