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.

4 Day Passes to Disney World
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.

Family Disneyland
My name is SPC Amado R. Punto Jr. I am currently deployed in Romania. From Aug 2011 to Sept 2012 I had my first deployment and spent time with my family in the Philippines on Apr 2012 during R & R. I went back to Fort Riley on Aug. 2012 and was reassigned to my current unit 165th MCT , 541st Combat Sustainment Support battalion. Before the end of year 2013, my family visas were finally approved and they came to states on Dec 30 2013. After 45 days of being together again I got deployed to Romania from 15 February 2014 until present. My wife and kids were only in the states for a month before I was deployed. My wife, my two sons ages 10 and 13 and daughter 17 are staying now in Oxnard , California. Their only wish at this time is for me to give them a time for family bonding after deployment and they want it in Disneyland in Anaheim. Their wish since their childhood might come through with your support and will really appreciate it with all my heart.

Disney World
I wish to take my three children and wife to Disney World. I am requesting 3 military salute 4 day hopper passes (For my wife, son, and me. Two of my children are free). I was a police officer for 10 years, but in 2013 I was fired after attending annual tour. The department was angry that I took time off of work. I finished my bachelor of science degree while deployed to Afghanistan, and was accepted to law school before returning home. I was unable to treat my kids to a fun vacation after my return as we had to load everything we had into a U-haul truck and drive to Missouri from Utah. My hope is to become a JAG after school ends in 2017. This led to me volunteering for a deployment to Afghanistan to make sure that my family had a roof over their heads. Since returning, we have moved half way across the country and I have gone back to school. My hope is to provide a better life for my family by getting a degree. My wife and I do not work. We are surviving on the GI Bill stipend (70%), and the small amount that I get from drill weekends. I fly from Missouri to Utah to attend drill once a month. We will be in Orlando for a military conference and would love to take the kids to Disney World while there. Thank you for your consideration.

Disney World Trip
In Dec 2012 I left my 2 boys, 7 & 3 to deploy to Afghanistan with NMCB 15. I returned home in Oct 2013 jut after my boys birthdays. in Jan 2014, less than 90 days later, I left again to deploy back to Afghanistan with NMCB 25. When I told my boys that i had to leave again it was very difficult for them to understand why i was leaving when I just got home. I asked them what special thing they wanted to do when i returned home and they said they wanted to go to Disney and meet Mickey Mouse. I promised that we would go and I am also taking my parents who have handled my finances while i was gone. With their help I was able to get out of debt and they will help me with the boys while at Disney. I will be able to take my oldest on the big rides while they watch my youngest. I am expecting to be home mid Nov 2014 and will take my family to Disney 4-10 Dec. I am looking for 2 senior, 2 children and 1 adult park hopper tickets for 5 days.

A Disneyland Christmas Miracle
My name Is David C Beck I'm medical disabled veteran a wounded warrior. I'm a loving husband and a father of three children. I'm struggling with Combat PTSD. Everyday is a battle with my emotions. I stress more than I should be and feel there's no escape sometimes. I always think about the event that had to me in Afghanistan when I got blown up with an IED. I am going through some financial hardships from transitioning to the civilian world. I barely have enough to pay for my bills but I am making it. The event I'm requesting for my wish is for my family to have a Disney Christmas vacation. I always saw package deals at a Disney resort with tickets. I never stayed at a resort before I never saw a Disney Christmas Parade and I would love my family to have a special Christmas. It would bring joy to my family because I know Christmas is going to be real short this year and my daughter been doing real well in school and I would like to reward her with this trip. Also my son birthday is on DEC 23 so it's a perfect b-day gift for him. Thank you for your time reading this. I know this is a long shot but asking doesn't hurt.
