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 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.

Disneyland Vacation
My name is SFC Paul Johnson (Ret), the dream I have is to take my fiance, Sandra and our son to Disneyland. After all she has done for me this is the one thing I want to do to show her my appreciation for what she has done. In 2003, while serving in Iraq I was wounded when a road side bomb went off and knocked me out. I was treated at the field hospital and returned to my unit. The blast fractured bones in my lower back. It was not discovered until 2007 during an MRI which showed 4 herniated disks. I remained in the Army and did another tour to Afghanistan in 2012. I held the position of Platoon Sergeant when my convoy was hit by a VBIED. I was not injured but I lost 14 people and had to endure the sound of screams that came with it. Upon my return to the states I asked for help to deal with a wide range of injuries and help with my PTSD. While in the Wounded Warrior Program I met my fiance Sandra. She helped save my life in many different ways. At the time I was dealing with a heavy drinking problem and misusing my prescription pills. In 2013, I was medically discharged from the Army for PTSD, TBI, neck and back injuries and ankle and shoulder injuries. In January of 2014 I had surgery on my right shoulder and there was a complication with the surgery and I almost died on the table. They had to revive me and when I came to all I wanted was Sandra and our son. In March of 2014 they finished the operation. In December I was fully disabled at 100% by the VA and my PTSD was rated at over 70%. All I have ever wanted to do is show Sandra how much I am thankful to have her in my life. She has had to endure my ups and downs and two near death experiences in 2014. She has had to help me over come my drinking problem and find ways to deal with my anger and so many other things. With out her I would not be where I am today. She has become my angel in so many ways. It would mean the world for us to see the game as a family and help bring light to so much darkness.

Disney World
I recently returned from another deployment and would like the opportunity to take my beautiful wife and two kids on a family vacation to Disney World. I would like to take my family of 4 on the 4-day Park Hopper that way we can enjoy all that Disney World has to offer. Disney World is somewhere my daughter Evelyn (6) and son Jacob (4) have always wanted to go, but with work and deployments we've never been able to plan and execute the trip in the past 6 years that I have been in. As I prepare for my post-deployment leave, I hope that I can make my kids dreams come true by taking them to Disney World to have an incredible family vacation that they will remember for the rest of their lives. Nothing makes me happier than seeing the smiles on my kids faces as they are having fun, so I can only imagine how great of a feeling it would be at Disney World.

Disneyland Getaway
I am SSgt Robert Bond and have served in the Air Force for over 11 years. I have been married to my beautiful wife for almost 10 years now and we have 2 beautiful children. This deployment I am missing a birthday, and the Holidays during this time away. As my return home approaches and my 10 year wedding anniversary peaks its head around the corner I've been trying to find a way to do something really special for my family when I return home. I have known of Vet Tix for a while now but recently learned of the Hero's Wish program and thought, hey it never hurts to ask right! So I would LOVE for 3 Disneyland in Anaheim CA 3-Day Park Hopper Tickets for myself, my wife and my soon to be 4 year old, my son is just turning 2 so he will not need a ticket. This deployment came a few months after a PCS so it would be really welcomed to take a family vacation to reconnect after this hectic time away from one another. Thank you to the wonderful supporters of Vet Tix and to the awesome folks who created and continue to operate this wonderful non-profit organization for the opportunity.

Dream Vacation to Disney World Orlando Florida
Hi, My family and I would love to have our dream vacation come true to Disney World Orlando Florida. I am currently deployed to Kuwait and this is my second deployment is a year and a half. I am suppose to be home in January which is right after the holidays. To me this would be a perfect late Christmas present to my wife and daughter. My daughter is 8 years old and I think that she is old enough to understand family time and how important it is, and the memories we can make at Disney World would be amazing and forever something she will remember. I know my whole family would be forever appreciative if this dream can come true. My wife's Birthday is on January 9TH so this could also be a birthday surprise for her as well. We would love a 4 day pass so we can see the whole park for all 3 of us. Thank You

Tickets to a Uk Basketball Game at Rupp Arena
Hi my name is Tracy Bailey and my wish is to be able to go to a UK basketball game at Rupp Arena. If it HAPPENED to be for the UK vs UofL (Louisville) game? OMG, I would surely faint dead away, but definitely rally in time to go to the game:) I would be thankful for ANY game but because I know there is NO bigger, more popular game at Rupp than when they play against Louisville. I am a die hard UK fan and my late husband went to UofL which adds extra meaning to it. Well at this point in my life, tickets to a basketball game that seem to be VERY expensive in my opinion isn't an option. I have many regrets for bad decisions made after Scott died. I spiraled out of control and refused to take a sober breath for over a year and face the reality of him being gone. I should have invested the insurance money for my future but I was extremely young and sadly I was surrounded by people that were more than okay with my unwise choices:( Though I can now say, I again have my own home, vehicle, and was able to replace all my household items as well, on my own :) I work full time, and am very thankful for what all has been restored in my life. Scott is still greatly missed :( and his family still considers me their daughter and sister-in-law and we always vacation together. I won't be telling them about this in case it doesn't happen but fingers crossed that I will be able to tell them the wish was granted :) Thank you for even making it to where I can submit this request! Just trying and thinking about the possible "what if?" has been awesome in itself. :) :) Thanks again!!!
