ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) President Obama recognizes 107-year-old Richard Overton, one of the oldest WWII veterans alive, at a Veterans Day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. "Today, Richard still lives in the house he built those years ago, rakes his own lawn, and every Sunday he hops in his 1971 Ford truck and drives one of the nice ladies in his neighborhood to Church." Obama then mentioned the age of Overton. "This American veteran is 107 years old and we are honored that he is here with us today, and let's ask Richard to stand again, because he can stand."
