Sons and Daughters In Touch Gold Star Families
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. All 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. 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 58,276 names on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, we proudly proclaim, ‘They Were Our Fathers.’
