America's oldest man has ties to Guam. Richard Overton, who served on Guam during WWII, blows out 112 candles on his birthday. He is not only America's oldest man, but the oldest living World War II Veteran. He served in the South Pacific from 1940 through 1945.

He's made stops in Hawaii, Iwo Jima, and Guam. Today, he is still healthy and strong, saying, "I enjoy myself. I feel fine every day. No pain and no ache."

Overton currently lives in Austin, Texas where he celebrates 112 years of life with friends and family.
