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.

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.

Six Flags Fiesta Texas
My name is SGT Francisco Cisneros and have honorable served active duty in the United States Army for 7 years. I am married to the most amazing woman in my life and have two amazing sons (2 & 4yrs). I am currently deployed in East Africa and was previously stationed in Germany the previous 18 months. Throughout the entire time abroad, I have been away from my wife and kids. My 4 year old son suffers from severe asthma, food allergies and eczema. Due to the winters in Germany (which is what severely triggers his asthma and eczema) and the care he was receiving back home, we elected to not to risk his health and keep my family in the states. With me being away, my wife had nobody to share the responsibility of raising two boys by herself, especially one as fragile as my 4 year old. Multiple emergency room visits, being flown to other hospitals and constant late night cares have really taken a toll on her. She does so much and has sacrificed her health for our kids, and I can't do anything but wish I could be there to take the responsibility from her. This wish is not so much for a service member, but for a military spouse since they endure they're own hardships as us deployed. My wish would be to take my entire family to Six Flags once I get back to the states. My wife has always been a huge fan of such and my kids have yet to see an amusement Park. My younger son has always been a very healthy, and my four year old is doing A LOT better now! I truly do appreciate the chance to do something extremely special for my wife and boys, and thank my wife for the mother she is. Thank you for the support.

Disney World
Hi, my name is CPT Todd Sexton and I am currently deployed to Afghanistan. I have been married to my beautiful wife, Amanda for 9 years and we have two kids together. My son Cole who is 7 and daughter Emma who turns 3 in two weeks. I have served in the Army for a total of 15 years now and this is my fourth combat deployment. Two to Iraq and two to Afghanistan. I have missed numerous anniversaries, birthdays, and holidays with my family. I was also deployed during the birth of my son. I would love nothing more than to be able to come home and take both of my children to Disney World to celebrate. I will get home just prior to my sons birthday and it would be great to see those kids faces when I could tell them "we're going to Disney World". My daughter is in that phase right now where she loves princesses and my son loves Star Wars and he really wants to see the Star Wars section at the park. It would be truly special to me to be able to take my wife there for all of the hard work that she has put in over the last three deployments. My son is an exceptional family member due to autism and she has a full time job trying to take care of him, get to all of his therapies, and wrangle my daughter all at the same time. She never complains and "always" puts myself and the kids first. For once I would love to surprise her and take her on vacation so she can relax a little and have a good time. I am requesting six tickets so that my mother and father-in-law can go with us in case my son has any issues while at the parks. Sometimes he has a hard time with crowds but if we have additional help then he and my daughter should be able to get the full Disney experience. Disney does such a great job with kids that have special needs and that is why I am choosing Disney. Thanks for your support and God Bless America!!

Disney World Vacation
My name is SSG Smilowska, I have been on active duty for 18 years and served multiple combat deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. Since than I have returned home and married my wife and had four beautiful children Charlotte (5), Savanna (4), Jameson (2), and Abigail (1). I have been married to my wife for six years and she is the glue that keeps this family together. I went through the medical evaluation process and was determined that I could remain in service with limited capabilities. I am hoping to retire at 23 years and spend as much time with the family as possible. I have never been to Disney World and neither has my wife. I would love to take my kids and my wife together so we can all experience it together for the first time and see the priceless looks on the kids faces when they meet Aerial or Elsa. Thank You Vet Tickets for trying to make this wish come true. Even if we do not get this wish We truly enjoy the site and will continue to support for a long time to come.

Justin Bieber
My Dads name is Sgt. Ian Thomas Sanchez. He died when his M Gator utility vehicle hit an IED during a security sweep. My name is Jesse and In 2011 I was diagnosed with my first brain tumor. I had to spend a very lonely two months in the hospital and a few years of rehab. Having an acquired brain injury changed my life in every aspect. My Mom who is chronically very sick could not stay with me and my Dad was KIA. I had a nice roommate, but felt sad I didn't have my Mother to stay with me. I used to Listen to Justin Beibers Song " Pray." It is what got me through that nightmare. Although I have another brain tumor, the prognosis is better than the first kind I had. Every day is a struggle with my health. Due to a lot of medical expenses, I can't afford to see Justin Bieber on his tour. I would love to take a friend with me and my Step Dad (my Mom would never let me go alone).

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.
