About Us

Gold Star ‘sons and daughters’ are the children of American soldiers who served in every branch – and at every rank – of the United States military during the Vietnam War. Our fathers were lost throughout the span of the Vietnam War, on land, in the air, and at sea.  Nearly 50 years later, some of our fathers are still unaccounted for. Today, we – the Gold Star ‘sons and daughters’ from the Vietnam War – come from every corner of America, weaving the same diverse fabric our fathers did a generation ago.  Listed among the 58,300 names on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, we proudly proclaim, ‘They Were Our Fathers.’
