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 Visit for Family
My name is Capt. Robert Anderson. We will be traveling to Florida this year for spring break to see our family, and would like to take our children to the Magic Kingdom to meet some of their favorite characters. In particular, we would like to have our son with Autism, Ross, meet his favorite character from Toy Story, Mr. Potatohead. I have been in the military for 13 years and owe a great deal of my success to my wife and children. Unfortunately, with five children, affording a day visit to the park is just not feasible at this point. My children (11, 7, 6, 4, and 3) have faced significant hardship as Army children, and I would like to reward them with a surprise day at the Magic Kingdom. 7 tickets to the Magic Kingdom is just not feasible for our family right now.I would like to surprise them with a visit to the Magic Kingdom to honor them for all they have done for me.

First Family Vacation to Disney World
My name is AT3 Galloway and I just left for my second deployment with the USS Harry S Truman. I am leaving behind 3 wonderful kids aged 5, 2 1/2, and one month old. I am also leaving behind a wonderful wife, who is also an army veteran that has deployed twice to Iraq. When I return home this deployment I hope to be able to do something special for the family. Due to training, underway, and deployments, in the last 4 years I have been away from home more than I have been there. I would love for the family to be able to reconnect after this deployment. I also hope to bond with my youngest who will not know me on return. I hope to take the family to Disney world for 4-5 days at the end of summer. It is also around my wife's birthday, and she is truly the glue that hold the family together. Thank you for any help.

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.

Family to Disneyworld
My name is ETC Christopher Green. I am married with 4 wonderful children, two boys ages 19 and 17, and two girls ages 13 and 10. I have spent the last 16 years of my Coast Guard career missing several birthdays, holidays, and other special days through-out the life of my children. The last three years have been the most difficult due to being stationed on a cutter and completed 9 deployments, keeping me away from my family for 18 months out of those three years. We recently had to rescue my oldest son from an unfortunate event which left him homeless and is now living with us again. I have always put my kids first whenever it came to our family's finances and therefore I have never taken them anywhere but to see other family, which was usually in conjunction with transfers. I am now stationed in Florida where I get to spend plenty of time with my family again, but still dream of getting to take them on a vacation. Being close to Orlando at this point, I would love to be able to take them to Disney World, especially before my oldest gets back on his feet and decides to move out again, but the combination cost of tickets, hotel, and food, especially for a family of 6, is still extremely high. Thank you Vet Tix for providing opportunities to our service members and all those who donate to help fulfill these requests.

Disneyland - California Dreamin '!
My name is Sgt. Robert Aiken. I have two wonderful daughters, ages 5 and 10, Disneyland is our dream of a lifetime! Born in Orange, California I have fond memories of Disneyland while my father, also a Marine, was stationed at El Toro. In 2000 I enlisted in the Marine Corps serving two combat tours beginning with the invasion of Iraq in 2003. In 2004 I got shot up pretty good in Ar Ramadi during a fire fight and subsequently retired medically in 2005. Currently residing in north Texas I've been married to the love of my life for 12 years now. Her unending love makes our lives special everyday. The magic of Disneyland for a few days in sunny southern California is surely in order for her especially. Thank you for your consideration and making dreams come true. God bless.

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.
