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 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.

Crown Royal 400 at the Brickyard
My name is SGT Christopher E Waite. I am currently on my third deployment and my second one in 3 years. Both have been to Afghanistan. The last 3 years have been hard on myself and my family due to the time that I have had to spend away from them serving our great country. With this deployment coming to an end I can not think of a better way to share an experience with them then through a generous donation from Vet Tix. I have always wanted to experience the Brick Yard 400 in Indianapolis, IN even though I live close to the track I have never had the opportunity to watch a race live and in person. I know it would be an experience of a life time, to feel the rumble of the engine of the Nascars as they scream by. Thank you for your time and consideration.

4 Day Passes to Disney World
My name is Douglas Edds. I separated from active duty back in 2012. In September of 2011 on my last deployment I was blown up by a VBIED (truck packed with 1500 lbs of explosives) receiving the purple heart and being sent back to the united states medically. After I got out I had to start different treatments through the VA and haven't been able to truly get away and go on a vacation. So now that my health is stable we don't really have the money for a big vacation like this. So it is my wish to take my wife and two kids to Disney World for a once in a lifetime experience.

Tennessee Titans vs. Atlanta Falcons
My name is Roger and I am recently medically retired from the Army on Sept 29 2014. I was severely injured in Eastern, Afghanistan on 23 April 2011 while conducting a night mission leading my Platoon. My Platoon was ambushed and we took heavy casualties and KIA. Being the Platoon Sergeant and having the Medic with me I had seen numerous Soldiers down in front of the enemy position during the intense firefight that was no more than 15 meters apart. Without hesitation myself and my Medic rushed into enemy fire to try and retrieve our men and while only a few meters away I was blown up by a enemy hand grenade. I have been on the road to recovery mentally and physically but it is hard. I have attempted suicide several times and have been impatient trying to live with the guilt of losing my men. I live in isolation and don't get out much. I just thought maybe going to a Tennessee Titans game with my neighbor would be good for a change. We are both big fans of the Titans. He has really helped me with supporting me around the yard, talks about my lose, since he is a senior critical care paramedic and knows what I'm talking about and overall a good friend. Thank you to anyone reading this. We all are inspiration to each other no matter what we do.

Michael Jackson One by Cirque Du Soleil
My name is SSgt Kelly Goodman. My kids are HUGE Michael Jackson fans, they love his music so much, even my girls would move around in my belly when I played him around the house. My son knows all his songs. It's just a drive from us and it can be a vacation we can have that's affordable and not over the top. I missed out on Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, their 5th birthday, my anniversary, New years, Valentine's, St Patrick's, and soon to be Easter. My kids haven't been apart from me this long and my kids have actually had a harder time than I thought. It's dad who is usually gone for work (he's military too). We are looking at going to Vegas July 22-26 so any show during that time would be amazing. I just want to thank these kids for their sacrifice, and have a memorable time with them since I missed out on so much, and thank my husband for taking on the task of mom and dad and shuttling them everywhere. We try to bond with our kids through things they love and have a passion for and Michael Jackson's music and talent, and the acrobatics from this show are things our kids love, to see their faces light up with joy and excitement, the freedom they have to do that, reminds me why I love my job and do what I do for them. I'm requesting 5 tickets because it's me, my husband, our 14 year old son, and our twin 5 year old daughters. Thank you for reading our wish.

Disneyworld
I am a an Iraqi Freedom veteran(2003). All I ever wanted after a life full of stress and constant selfless service to this beautiful country was a family. God has blessed me with a beautiful wife and two wonderful children. My son, Valentino(5) and daughter, Belicia(2) are very much a fan of Disney. I would wish to give them what would be their dream vacation. As a father, I would request this for them to see a smile on their faces. That in itself is worth all the sacrifices I have made. God bless America.

My name is Jereme Schuchard. I am a wounded veteran. I was awarded purple heart for damages to my neck and shoulder. I was at the 1996 khobar towers bombing by Al Queda upon AF & Army compound in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. I was eating Dominos pizza for dinner and then boom! 19 fellow soldiers died. 236 including myself were injured. My wish is for 6 tickets to Six Flags Magic Mountain for me and my family. This hero's gift will bring great joy to my family & I! I thank you all very much!
