Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is Navy Veteran Richard Harrison.
Richard Harrison was born in North Carolina and served 20 years in the Navy. He served on four ships, including his final years on USS Chowanoc. He was discharged in the mid-1970s, while stationed in San Diego, and went into real estate.
Years later, Richard moved his family to Las Vegas and opened Gold & Silver Pawn Shop.
He was best known as “Old Man” on the show “Pawn Stars.” He passed away earlier this week at the age of 77.
We honor his service.
