Sidney with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott 12/18/18

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, 99, one of the oldest WWII vets 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 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. In a little over a month, on February 11th, he will be celebrating his 100th birthday at the White House. 

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 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.
