Sidney Walton, 100, one of America's oldest WWII vets, was born in NYC 2/11/1919.
He joined the Army in '41 to fight Hitler, nine months before America entered the war. He served in the CBI theater, 34th infantry, 8th division, as a corporal. After five years of war he returned to America.
Sidney hopes that WII, the most horrific war ever fought in the history of the planet, is the last world war.
Sidney regrets not meeting some of the last Civil War veterans, and to make up for that lifelong regret, Sidney and his son Paul are visiting every state capital and all 50 governors, and millions of patriotic Americans as they tour each entire state.
On April 11th, Sidney and his family were honored to meet with the President in the Oval Office! (See video.)
