SIDNEY WALTON'S NATIONAL NO REGRETS TOUR

Raising awareness of the vanishing number of WWII veterans, and giving everyone in all 50 states an opportunity to meet one of the last WWII vets.

Sidney Walton, 99, one of America's oldest WWII vets, was born on Feb.11, 1919 in New York City.  He enlisted in the Army in 1941, nine months before Pearl Harbor, serving a total of five years.   


Before he joined the Army to serve our nation in WWII, Sidney missed a chance to meet some of the last few remaining Civil War veterans in New York City's Central Park. It was a missed opportunity that he has regretted his entire life.  


Now, to make up for that one regret, Sidney has embarked on a one-year National No Regrets Tour in which he will travel to every state and visit every capital.  He plans on meeting all 50 governors and thousands of citizens and veterans on his whirlwind tour, which will conclude on his 100th birthday, Feb. 11th, at the White House.  


"As the 'Greatest Generation' passes away, here is one last opportunity to thank a member of that generation who served our nation so nobly through its period of greatest need.  Their contributions to our nation and to the preservation of civilization itself should never be forgotten." (Rhode Island House Resolution, 4/24/18) 


"In this moment when the country has been so divisive, this is the one thing that integrates Democrats and Republicans alike. They revere a person who saved both the country and the world. It makes us feel like we have a national treasure,"  said his son Paul.


The one-of-a-kind "No Regrets Tour," which began in Rhode Island, relies heavily on contributions - see donation links below.
