Austin, Texas – Today is a special day for one of the oldest living World War II Vets. On Monday, Richard Overton turned 109-years-old.

His neighborhood threw him a party to celebrate this special day and according to Business Insider, he still enjoys his whiskey and 12 cigars a day!

He’s been smoking since the age of 18 and says he has over $100 worth of cigars now.

Overton is believed to be one of the oldest living veterans, but this cannot be verified because not all veterans have registered with the Department of Veterans Affairs.

He says the key to living to be over 100 is to stay out of trouble.
