Gold Star Families Remembrance Week 2020

During this Gold Star Families Remembrance WeekSDIT proudly honors our mothers, who as Gold Star Wives bore the burden of moving their families forward when our fathers did not return from the Vietnam War. 
 
We also honor our entire Gold Star Family: our grandparents, aunts and uncles, and all those who endured the loss of their loved ones during the Vietnam War. 
 
We honor the Gold Star Families and all those who grieve the loss of loved ones in military service from World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Cold War and Persian Gulf War, the Global War on Terror, and through the years since 9/11.  
Lastly, we recognize the common bond shared within Sons and Daughters In Touch which, for  30 years has worked to “locate, unite and support” America’s Gold Star ‘sons and daughters’ from the Vietnam War.

National POW/MIA Recognition Day 2020

On this National POW/MIA Recognition Day, we honor the memory of our nation’s missing service members and hope for the fullest possible accounting of each of them. Since World War II, these 81,900 answered the call to duty and have not yet returned home. Today and every day, please know “you are not forgotten!”

Our Mission

Sons and Daughters in Touch


To locate, unite and provide support to the Gold Star ‘sons and daughters’ and other family members of those who died or remain missing as a result of the Vietnam War; to produce a periodic e-newsletter providing important information to all SDIT stakeholders; to promote healing via networking and special projects, to regularly address other Gold Star family organizations, high schools and college classes in hopes of providing education on the historical and emotional legacy of war.

About SDIT

Sons and Daughters In Touch is an all-volunteer non-profit organization committed to “…locating, uniting and supporting” the now-grown children of American servicemen who perished during the Vietnam War. For nearly 30 years, SDIT has worked to elevate the visibility of our cause, the cause of Vietnam Veterans, and the cause of all Gold Star families.

During the Vietnam War, our fathers served in every branch – and at every rank – of the United States military. At the time of their loss, some of our dads had only been in country a few days. Others served several deployments. Some of our fathers achieved the rank of Private and Corporal. Some of our fathers achieved the rank of General. A few of our fathers received the Medal of Honor. Some of our fathers were awarded the Purple Heart.

Our fathers were lost throughout the span of the Vietnam War, on land, in the air, and at sea. Over 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 58,315 names on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, we proudly proclaim, ‘They Were Our Fathers.’
