Gives everyone an opportunity to meet a WWII vet before they're all gone.
Sidney Walton, 101, one of America's last WWII vets, regretted missing a chance to meet Civil War vets. So he began the No Regrets Tour to all 50 states, meeting all 50 governors and everyone who wants to meet a WWII vet.
Born Feb. 11, 1919 in New York City, Sidney joined the Army at 22 to fight Hitler nine months before Pearl Harbor. As a Corporal, he fought in the China, Burma, India (CBI) Theater, 34th Infantry, 8th Division. The only time he took a break in five years of war was to attend his mother's funeral back home in NYC.
In this 75th anniversary year of the end of WWII, Sidney is reminding everyone of the courage it took and the sacrifices soldiers made to save this great country.
Had we lost the war, there would be NO America as we know it today - NO Hollywood, NO Wall Street, NO White House.
With your support, Sidney will be able to finish his final mission. Click here to help.
