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

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 warriors 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.

Tennessee Titans Home NFL Game
My name is Roger Moore. I wish to take my family to see the Tennessee Titans. My wife and I are huge Titans fans. We would need 6 tickets for the family. I really want to do this trip for my wife. She has gone through a lot during the years, especially putting up with my issues. Her brother was KIA in 1967 in Vietnam when she was 17, she was married to me in 1968 and had a wounded husband at 18, was raising her 2 year old brother our first son at 18 and managed to take care of me during the early years of my disability. She was a keeper all the way. She loves doing things with family so I would love to be able to take the crew to Tennessee for an extended week end and as part of the trip enjoy a Titans game. I know it would be an event the whole family will remember. I've spent the last 45 years doing finance and accounting for the hospitality industry. Retired a couple of years ago and travel a lot. Was recently diagnosed with the impacts of Agent Orange. I'm the taller of the two in the picture from 68. Thank you for all you do.

Take My Family to Disneyland
My name is SSG George Aaron. I have a beautiful wife Susie, who is the highlight of my life. We have been blessed with 2 amazing children, Kassidy 3, and Eddie 2. Kassidy was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Delay Syndrome, which is on the Autism Spectrum. My wife is such a god sent, and I feel extremely sad that in the 6 years of our relationship and marriage I have been away for almost 3 of those years. My wife has dealt with the burdens of my deployments, as well as the struggles with raising the children, never once complaining. I would like to be able to take them to Disney Land, and treat my wife to an amazing trip since we have never had time for a honeymoon.

Family Trip to Disney World
My name is GM1 Vargas and I'm preparing to come home from my 4th deployment. I would love to give my wife and children (ages 11,8,7,3) a trip to Disney World once I get back. My wife of 9 years has been doing a great job keeping everything on track in picking up my part in the house and with the kids. The kids have been great little helpers as well. This deployment has been particularly rough on all of us and we are in need of some fun and relaxation. I've missed several important events such as their soccer games in which they were all first time players, school awards, a birthday, and our anniversary. On top of that our hopes of going to our hometown (after not being home for 3 years) have been shattered due to deployment extension. So to make up for all of the sacrifices we've all had to make, I am requesting help with (6) 3-day one park per day tickets to Disney World.
