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 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.

Hello all my name is Eddie Slovak. I am a purple heart recipient veteran that served the US Army for 5 1/2 years. I have deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. My wish is to take my family of four (Myself,wife, 8 year old son and 4 year old daughter) to watch our favorite team San Francisco 49ers.

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.

Disney World Vacation
Hi my name is Spc Brandon Flanagan. I am a medically retired Army Infantryman, I was severely wounded in 2008 in my first deployment to Iraq and suffered a traumatic brain injury among other injuries in a bombing. The last 6 years have included huge highs and lows as thanks to God I survived and recovered better than anyone expected, but I still have ongoing struggles and was also left by 2 wives since my accident. But 3rd times a charm and I am glad to be married to my current wife, who has been wonderful and helpful to me, caring for me when others wouldn't and being my advocate with the VA and such. But we have a hard time sometimes. I can't work and she left her job to care for me and the kids so finances are tight. I have 2 sons ages 7 and 8 from my 1st marriage that I have joint custody of and my wife and I have a daughter age 2 together. None of us (except for my wife when she was a kid) have ever been able to afford to go on any really nice and fun trip or vacation and definitely never anything with all 5 of us together. I would love for us all to be able to go to Disney World! The boys and our little girl would have the time of their lives, they have never been to any real theme park much less Disney World so it would blow their minds! Could be good for us as a couple as well since we never were able to have a honeymoon. This trip could be a good opportunity for us all to de-stress and connect as a family. We would need 4 of the 4-day park hopper tickets. Thank you for looking and considering helping us out even if just a little! It's very appreciated!

Take My Girls to Disney World at the End of September
After 12 years on off with the Marine Corps I was injured while running a scout team through the city of Fallujah, Iraq. I spent 7 months back and forth from a hospital in Bethesda, Maryland only to have the VA lose all my medical records. I've had a battle nonstop since 2008 just to get a proper claim submitted. I've battled PTSD and lost my best friends due to this epidemic. I finally feel as if I'm in control of this and heading in the right direction being a good husband and father. Still being run through the system with the VA I was supposed to be at 100% since I'm not allowed to work due to a spinal issue and brain injury. So I found a Purple Heart site that offered to send my family to Disney World as long as I saved money for our flights. Well it turned out to be a scam and like that the site was pulled. I don't want to let my family down and would appreciate any help. Our plan was to stay at Disney for a few days then drive to Space Coast and stay a few more days. Any info even on discounts or to help save any money would be greatly appreciated.
