At 111 years of age, Richard Overton is America’s oldest living World War II veteran. Austin Mayor Steve Adler declared Overton's birthday, May 11, as Richard Overton Day in the city and announced that the street on which Overton lives, Hamilton Avenue, was temporarily being renamed Richard Overton Avenue.  Overton, who is recovering from pneumonia, is once again a familiar sight on his front porch after a recent hospital stay. Caregivers continue to ask for donations at  www.gofundme.com/Help-Richard-Overton  to keep Overton living in his home instead of in a nursing home.
