THIS self-funded campaign needs YOUR SUPPORT

The No Regrets Tour is offering every American an opportunity to meet one of the few remaining WWII veterans.


Sidney Walton,  who just turned 100 and is now one of America's oldest WWII vets, was born Feb 11, 1919 in NYC.  He joined the Army in 1941, nine months before Pearl Harbor, and served in India, part of the CBI (China, Burma, India) theater of combat.  He  returned to New York City in 1946, after completing five years of service. 


Sidney regrets missing an historic moment to meet some of the last veterans of the Civil War.  To make up for that regret, Sidney, with his son Paul, is visiting every state capital to meet all 50 governors and greet millions of patriotic Americans along the way.  They spend one week touring each state.


On April 11th, Sidney and his family were honored to meet with the President in the Oval Office!  (Video).


"As the Greatest Generation passes away, here is one last opportunity to thank Corporal Walton,  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).


Sidney celebrated his 100th birthday in New York on The Today Show  (video) and on David Muir's ABC World News Tonight (video).  He has also appeared on Fox & Friends (video).
