The Wesley Veterans Committee recently met with Mr. Overton, America’s oldest living veteran, who is currently 112 years old.┬áHe may be America’s oldest living male. This gathering was facilitated by Mr. Overton’s cousin, Rev. Carl J. Jarmon, USN (Ret) visiting from California, Nell Peterson and Mr. Overton’s nephew, Martin Overton (not shown), both from Austin.

Our time with Mr. Richard Overton was limited but it was an honor and privilege to meet and have a short conversation with him.We extended an invitation to him to join with us in November for Veterans Day at Wesley UMC. His nephew, Martin Overton, said he would work with us to make this happen if practical.
