What is a Hero's Wish?


Wish: SKI LIFT TICKET
All, Thank you for granting my wish this year. It has been a hard year with combat deployments and other personnel things in my life. This day is a day that I will never forget. Again thank you. Respectfully MSGT Sagredo Ismael

Hero's Wish Veteran Tickets Foundation is proud to bring the Hero's Wish program to our members!

Deployed, wounded and families of those killed in action are shouldering the hardest burdens of military service. Their duty has impacted their lives in ways the rest of America can only imagine. To relieve their burden of stress VetTix would like to give a once in a lifetime event to these Heroes. Hero's Wish events create wonderful experiences that they can always remember to heal their spirit and bring them together as a family. For those who have suffered, we want to welcome them back and bring enjoyment back into their lives.

Hero's Wish allows members who meet certain criteria to request specific tickets for any single event (NOTE: We are not capable of fulfilling meet and greets, trips, cruises, hotel stays or flights), and have donors fulfill that request either by ticket donation or by donating money to make the hero's wish come true.

The Hero's Wish program can be used by Active Duty Military Personnel (six months prior to, while on leave from or six months after their deployments), severely wounded Veterans (Purple Heart Required) and the families of men and woman killed in action (KIA).

After submitting a Hero's Wish, Vet Tix will work with the veteran to verify the Hero's Wish requirements are met. If all criteria are met, a member of the Hero's Wish will be assigned to facilitate wish fulfillment. Veteran Tickets Foundation does not discriminate based on race, religion, sex or social status.

The Vet Tix Hero's Wish team and other volunteers explore possible ways to make the Hero's Wish come true for our veteran. Most Hero's Wishes are funded on a case by case basis with funds donated through the website and by the Hero's Wish team working hard with our donors and venues to make the Hero's Wish a reality.

Disney World Vacation
My name is Donna Cutchall. My sons and I lost the greatest man in our lives 12 years ago in Iraq. My sons were 4 and 6 years old when it happened. All of us had talked about making plans to go to Disney World when he got back home, but that never happened. My sons now are 16 and 18 and still to this day want to go. My wish is to take my boys to Disney World. We are unable to go because of my current income. I just lost my sons social security money and lost my job. Out of all the wishes we could request, this one would help us feel more complete. Doing what we would have done if SSGT Christopher Cutchall were still alive.

Hamilton on Broadway With My Family
My name is 1LT Moses Woo. The event I'd like to attend is a Broadway showing of the musical, Hamilton. The show is about one of our founding Fathers, and his successes. He had the ability to leave St Croix, join the military, become a Statesman, and one of our Treasury Secretaries. It would be amazing to see a live biopic of the American Hero and to be able to bring my family who has supported me throughout my military career. My family has supported me through all the training, deployment, and time away from home. Most recently I did a tour to Afghanistan and my parents really took a toll in terms of worrying and being separated from me. I would just like to treat them to something nice and to show them how the sacrifices can also be rewarding. Alexander Hamilton's sacrifices also allowed him to be successful and to be one of our great Founding Fathers, and I'd like to show my family this great mans' experience. Thank you for considering my wish.

Disney World for Granddaughter.
My Name is Sherrie Norden. I am a Gold Star Daughter of USAF CAPT. CARL E. JACKSON MIA, VIETNAM, 27 JUNE 65. We asked our 11 year old granddaughter, if you could go anywhere on vacation, where would you want to go. Of course, she said Disney World. We booked our hotel (Wyndham Cypress Resort in Kissimmee, FL) for Thanksgiving week. As luck would have it, the transmission went out in our vehicle and due to that expense, had to cancel the trip. We can afford the hotel, but not theme park tickets :( Taylor has been a real trooper about it though.

Hello, my name is Staff Sgt. Thomas Duval. I am currently on my third deployment with the U.S. Army and set to return just in time for the holidays. My wish is to take my wife and three children to Disney's Epcot for one day during the long Thanksgiving weekend. Our three kids, 8yo, 6yo and 3yo, are counting down the days till my return and this would be the ultimate surprise. I have no sad stories. Like the thousands of military families, mine has had its struggles with the back to back deployments however, we get through them like all the other great military families. We are thankful for the military the opportunity to serve and we are thankful for organizations like this, who are trying to help make the impossible possible. Thank you for any considerations! The price requested is strictly for 1 day at Epcot for 2 adults and three children. Thank you all again.

Disney World Surprise for My Wife and Daughter
My name is Spencer Gatwood. I am a Specialist in the United States Army. I have spent the last two years away from my lovely wife Keiran and beautiful daughter Emily. I am currently in Kuwait and come home this December I will finally have the chance to go home to my amazing family. After missing many birthdays and holidays over the last few years, I really want to make it up to my girls. They have both stood by me over the years and have been an endless source of support when times were tough. I'm hoping to surprise my daughter in Orlando, at Disney world. She has never been there, she doesn't know when I'm coming home and I know it would be a moment that she will never forget. My hope is to spend at least three days at the Disney parks with park hopper tickets. I'm not normally one to ask for help with things of this nature, but if the cost of the tickets were offset I could make the rest of the trip even more magical for my little princess. God Bless.
