America's oldest living veteran, 108-year-old Richard Overton, is living his best life.

The World War II vet—who, if we're being frank, really lays out a solid plan for living—says the secret to happy old age is whiskey.

Overton used to start his days with some whiskey in his coffee, and he still adds a teaspoon from time-to-time. "It's just like medicine," he said. Overton smokes cigars daily, too. "I'm smoking one now," he said from Austin.

The 108-year-old still lives in the Texas home he bought for $4,000 after the war. He told reporters he generally spends his Irish coffee-buzzed days doing yard work, cruising around town in his truck, and giving all the pretty widows rides to church.

And then?

"I may drink a little [whiskey] in the evening too with some soda water, but that's it," Overton said in a recent interview. "Whiskey's a good medicine. It keeps your muscles tender."
