25th Anniversary Invitation

25th Anniversary Celebration

Honoring our Fathers

A weekend of remembrance, healing and hope

Father’s Day Weekend – June 19–21, 2015
Washington, DC

In 1992, SDIT held its first national Father’s Day gathering, providing many Gold Star sons and daughters their first opportunity to see their fathers’ names on the Wall.

This year, SDIT will celebrate its 25th Anniversary with a national Father’s Day celebration at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.  Hundreds of ‘sons and daughters’ will travel from across the nation to share their unique life experience, to see their fathers’ names on the wall, and to meet old friends.

Check back for more information as we get closer to the weekend. We hope to see you there!
