The nation's oldest veteran is back in the hospital.

Richard Overton, at 111 years old, was admitted to the hospital early Thursday morning with pneumonia in both lungs, according to his family.

It's the same infection the lifelong Austin resident fought off in May. Back then, he prayed and flirted with nurses, and four days later was back on the front porch of the home he built nearly 70 years ago.
