SDIT in 2022 – What a Year!

As you gather with family and friends to celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, and other holidays this season, take a moment to celebrate SDIT too!

A year ago, plans may not have called for this much activity, but 2022 was among the most successful and busy years in the organization’s 33-year history.

Across the nation, SDIT members were involved in scores of activities and benefitted from programs for Gold Star families. All this activity was driven by the purpose of “locating, uniting, and supporting” the children of American servicemen who didn’t return home from the Vietnam War.

SDIT is very fortunate to have an incredibly dedicated group of Board Members, Advisors, and volunteers who volunteered to make all this happen. Thanks to each of them for such generous commitments of time and talent!

Have a joyous and peaceful holiday season!

In honor of America’s fallen service members and Gold Star families, on Memorial Day President Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden invited a small group to join them in planting a Magnolia Tree on the White House grounds.

SDIT and the National League of POW/MIA Families were honored to be invited and proud to be represented by Denise Reed (pink jacket; daughter of Harold B. Reed; Army KIA 1966) and Jill Hubbs (red jacket; daughter of Donald R. Hubbs, Navy MIA 1968).

40th Anniversary of the Groundbreaking of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial


National Vietnam War Veterans Day

March 26-29, 2022

“With conviction, our Nation pledges our enduring respect, our continuing care, and our everlasting commitment to all Vietnam veterans.”

This year marks the fifth anniversary of March 29 being designated as National Vietnam War Veterans Day.

Across the nation, take time to thank and honor those who answered the call, confronted the enemy, supported the effort, returned home, and cemented their places as great American entrepreneurs.

Capitalizing on a “Can Do” spirt, they seized the initiative and made every corner of America a better place. They raised families, started businesses, and held elective office. They built the iconic Vietnam Veterans Memorial, formed Vietnam Veterans of America, befriended the Gold Star Families of their fallen battle buddies, and continue fighting for causes benefitting all veterans!

The members of Sons and Daughters In Touch extend to all Vietnam veterans a most sincere, “Thank You” and “Welcome Home!”
