Reminding Americans how close we came to losing everything, and to be grateful for all the veterans who have fought for our freedoms.
Sidney Walton, 101, is on a No Regrets Tour. He missed a chance when he was young to meet Civil War veterans, and now he wants to give all Americans an opportunity to meet a WWII vet before it's too late.
On this 75th anniversary year of the end of WWII, Sidney is reminding everyone of the sacrifices made to save this country. He is bringing his message to every governor and every citizen of every state.
Born Feb. 11, 1919 in New York City, Sidney joined the Army at 21 to fight Hitler nine months before Pearl Harbor. As a Corporal, he fought in the China, Burma, India Theater (CBI), 34th Infantry, 8th Division, and returned to the U.S. after the war.
On Sept. 11, 2020, in memory of 9/11.
