The Campaign

Reminding Americans of the sacrifice WWII veterans made to save this country, and giving every citizen a rare opportunity to meet one of the few remaining WWII vets.

Sidney Walton, 100, one of the oldest WWII veterans in the U.S., was born in New York City on 2/11/1919. He enlisted in the Army nine months before Pearl Harbor (12/7/41) and served for all of WWII.

Before enlisting, Sidney missed a historic moment to meet some of the last veterans of the Civil War.  He regrets that to this day.   

To make up for that regret, Sidney has embarked on this full-time, No Regrets Tour, visiting every state's capital and its major cities over the next year.  He is meeting all 50 governors and hundreds of thousands of patriotic Americans. 

The week of February 11th he celebrated his 100th birthday in New York City, with appearances on The Today Show, CBS News,  ABC World News, and Good Morning America; and a standing ovation at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show at Madison Square Garden.  Just last year he appeared on Fox & Friends twice. He is now firming up plans to meet with President Trump at the White House this week. 

WWII was the mightiest struggle humankind has ever seen.  It killed more people, cost more money, damaged more property, affected more people, and caused more far reaching changes in nearly every country than any other war in history. By early 1942, all major countries of the world were involved in the most destructive war in history, killing more than 55 million people.  

As a survivor of the China, Burma, India (CBI) theatre of WWII, Sidney wants to remind people of the sacrifices these brave men and women made for our freedom today.  In a few short years, there will not be any left.

This patriotic mission, though self-funded, relies heavily on generous donations.
