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.

Sons and Daughters In Touch is proud to share this Impact Report capturing both recent and historic accomplishments of the organization. Since its inception in 1989, SDIT has pursued its mission: “…to locate, unite and support the children of American servicemen who were killed or remain missing in the Vietnam War.” For more than 30 years, our grassroots efforts worked towards fulfilling that mission. Along the way, SDIT has impacted tens of thousands from America’s Gold Star families of the Vietnam War, other older and younger Gold Star families who help comprise `the Long Gold Line,” and our nation’s veterans too.

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.’
