One of America’ oldest WWII veterans turns 102

One of America’s Oldest WWII Veterans, Sidney Walton, Turning 102, to be Honored in Miami Beach! Pit Crew to Update Sidney’s “National No Regrets Tour” Vehicle Wrap from “101” to “102.”  Live! Starlite Hotel, 750 Ocean Dr, 8:00 am, Thurs, Feb 11.  Invited guests include Mayor Dan Gelber of Miami Beach

Sidney Walton, 101, from California and one of America’s last WWII vets, is on a national No Regrets Tour.  He is visiting all 50 states and meeting all 50 governors in a campaign to raise awareness of the rapidly shrinking number of WWII vets and the sacrifices they made to save this great country.

Sidney regrets missing an opportunity to meet some of the last Civil War veterans, and now is giving everyone a chance to meet a WWII veteran before it’s too late.

“I joined the Army to fight Hitler,” said Sidney, who left college in New York City at 22 to enlist nine months before Pearl Harbor.

The No Regrets Tour, which began in April 2018, has traveled through 35 states.  Observed his son Paul, “we have found that my father inspires tremendous appreciation among those he meets.  He is a living piece of history, reminding us not to forget the price of our freedoms today.”

Due to COVID-19, Sidney no longer flies to cities and rents vehicles to visit governors. Now, to travel safely and comfortably he purchased his favorite vehicle, a 2020 Buick Enclave (see photo).
