Son of WWII veteran travels across nation to honor veteran sacrifices

The son of a World War II veteran is finishing his dad’s mission of raising awareness about the sacrifices all veterans make.

Paul Walton, 66, was at the state capitol Thursday.

His 102-year-old father, Sidney, was nearly finished raising awareness in all 50 states when he died this past October.

Minnesota is state number 45 — with just five left to go.

Paul said his dad’s mission was to get veterans the recognition they deserved.

“If anyone out there has the possibility of meeting a World War II veteran, take them out to dinner, give them 100 bucks, do something nice for them,” Walton said. “They’re the ones that truly deserve special treatment.”
