Raising awareness for our veterans and raising money for frontline nurses.
WWII Vet Sidney Walton, 102, on a 50-state, 50-governor tour, is dedicating the final leg of his tour to Capt. Tom Moore of England who raised $46M for healthcare workers in the UK.
With your help Sidney can do it in the U.S.!
39th Governor No Regrets Tour!
Sidney was born Feb. 11th, 1919, in New York City. In March 1941, eager to fight the Nazis, he enlisted in the Army, eight months before Pearl Harbor.
Sidney served in the lesser known third theater of combat, CBI (China-Burma-India) as a corporal and medical technician in the 34th Infantry, 8th Division, until the war's end.
Sidney always regretted missing a chance to meet Civil War veterans during the 1939 World's Fair in New York. To make up for this regret, in 2018 he set off with his son Paul on a "No Regrets Tour" to give Americans a last chance to meet a World War II vet before they're all gone.
Sidney is visiting all 50 governors in all 50 states, raising awareness for our veterans. For the last 14 states he is also raising millions for frontline nurses in the pandemic battle.
Sidney has met the presidents of the U.S. and France, was honored at the 2020 Super Bowl, birthday on the Today Show, featured on World News Tonight, and received the 2020 Unsung Hero Patriot Award. Sidney wants to reach the goal of "$1 more than Moore" to support the frontline nurses who are still helping us through the pandemic. He needs your help!
