What is a Hero's Wish?

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

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.

Tickets to a Uk Basketball Game at Rupp Arena
Hi my name is Tracy Bailey and my wish is to be able to go to a UK basketball game at Rupp Arena. If it HAPPENED to be for the UK vs UofL (Louisville) game? OMG, I would surely faint dead away, but definitely rally in time to go to the game:) I would be thankful for ANY game but because I know there is NO bigger, more popular game at Rupp than when they play against Louisville. I am a die hard UK fan and my late husband went to UofL which adds extra meaning to it. Well at this point in my life, tickets to a basketball game that seem to be VERY expensive in my opinion isn't an option. I have many regrets for bad decisions made after Scott died. I spiraled out of control and refused to take a sober breath for over a year and face the reality of him being gone. I should have invested the insurance money for my future but I was extremely young and sadly I was surrounded by people that were more than okay with my unwise choices:( Though I can now say, I again have my own home, vehicle, and was able to replace all my household items as well, on my own :) I work full time, and am very thankful for what all has been restored in my life. Scott is still greatly missed :( and his family still considers me their daughter and sister-in-law and we always vacation together. I won't be telling them about this in case it doesn't happen but fingers crossed that I will be able to tell them the wish was granted :) Thank you for even making it to where I can submit this request! Just trying and thinking about the possible "what if?" has been awesome in itself. :) :) Thanks again!!!

Dream Vacation to Disney World Orlando Florida
Hi, My family and I would love to have our dream vacation come true to Disney World Orlando Florida. I am currently deployed to Kuwait and this is my second deployment is a year and a half. I am suppose to be home in January which is right after the holidays. To me this would be a perfect late Christmas present to my wife and daughter. My daughter is 8 years old and I think that she is old enough to understand family time and how important it is, and the memories we can make at Disney World would be amazing and forever something she will remember. I know my whole family would be forever appreciative if this dream can come true. My wife's Birthday is on January 9TH so this could also be a birthday surprise for her as well. We would love a 4 day pass so we can see the whole park for all 3 of us. Thank You

Porland Trailblazers Game
I am currently deployed. I am coming home in a few weeks and would love to catch a Portland Trailblazers game vs. the LA Lakers on the 28th of November in Portland. I am a huge Basketball fan and would like to go see Kobe Bryant before he retires. I'd also just love to go to a game. I haven't been to an NBA game in years.

Disney World
I recently returned from another deployment and would like the opportunity to take my beautiful wife and two kids on a family vacation to Disney World. I would like to take my family of 4 on the 4-day Park Hopper that way we can enjoy all that Disney World has to offer. Disney World is somewhere my daughter Evelyn (6) and son Jacob (4) have always wanted to go, but with work and deployments we've never been able to plan and execute the trip in the past 6 years that I have been in. As I prepare for my post-deployment leave, I hope that I can make my kids dreams come true by taking them to Disney World to have an incredible family vacation that they will remember for the rest of their lives. Nothing makes me happier than seeing the smiles on my kids faces as they are having fun, so I can only imagine how great of a feeling it would be at Disney World.
