The Mission

Raising awareness of the dwindling number of WWII veterans, giving citizens in all 50 states a rare opportunity to meet one of the few oldest remaining WWII veterans.


Sidney Walton, 99, one of America's oldest WWII vets, was born in Manahattan on Feb. 11th 1919. Nine months before Pearl Harbor (12/7/41) he enlisted in the Army, serving all five years of WWII.


Before he joined the service, Sidney missed a historic moment to meet some of the last  Civil War vets in NYC. He has regretted that his entire life.  


Now to make up for it, Sidney has embarked on this full-time, No Regrets Tour, traveling to every state for a week over the next year.  He is meeting each state governor, and hundreds of thousands of patriotic Americans. In a few months his 100th birthday will be celebrated in the White House, Feb. 11. 


The Rhode Island legislature recently passed a resolution in Sidney's honor declaring: "As the 'Greatest Generation' passes away, here is one last opportunity to thank 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."  


"In this moment when the country has been so divisive, this is one thing that unites Democrats and Republicans alike. They revere a person who saved this beautiful country. It makes us feel like we have a national treasure,"  said his son Paul.


Sidney has met 17 governors so far:


  1. 4/24 - Gina Raimondo, Rhode Island; appointed Honorary Brigadier General of RI Militia
  2. 4/30 - Mass. Gov. Charlie Baker;  honored on field at Fenway Park
