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

Hero's Wish 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 Trip for My Family.
My name is SSgt Darnall and I am a disabled OIF/OEF veteran and Purple Heart recipient. I was in an IED explosion on foot patrol in 2010 that has changed my life. I would love to take my son and wife to Disneyland this year to thank them for all the have done to support me. I would appreciate three, 3 day park hopper passes. It would mean the world to my son.

Disney World for Granddaughter.
My Name is Sherrie Norden. I am a Gold Star Daughter of USAF CAPT. CARL E. JACKSON MIA, VIETNAM, 27 JUNE 65. We asked our 11 year old granddaughter, if you could go anywhere on vacation, where would you want to go. Of course, she said Disney World. We booked our hotel (Wyndham Cypress Resort in Kissimmee, FL) for Thanksgiving week. As luck would have it, the transmission went out in our vehicle and due to that expense, had to cancel the trip. We can afford the hotel, but not theme park tickets :( Taylor has been a real trooper about it though.

Family Trip to Disneyland
I am TSgt Jason Caceres and have served in the Air Force for over 18 years. I have a family of 5 so at times it is hard for me to afford to take my family to do fun things like this so I'm hoping this will allow me to do that for them. I have been married to my beautiful wife for 10 years now and we have 3 beautiful children. Over the last 18 years of service I have missed many birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays with my family. They have had to deal with my countless deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq and I have missed them growing up. My wife has been a trooper taking care of 3 kids while I have been away and dealing with her diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. 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 5 Disneyland in Anaheim CA 3-Day Park Hopper Tickets for myself, my wife, Melayna (17), Jackson (11), and Lyvea (6). As I near retirement I would love to be able to surprise them with this special trip to say thank you for the years they have had to go without me being there. 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.

Kiss Freedom to Rock Roadie for a Day
Whom It May Concern, Hello. I am a U.S. Marine who will be retiring after 20 years of active duty at the end of this year. I have served in Iraq and Afghanistan and have been a long time KISS fan. I was extremely happy when I discovered KISS are playing at the Richmond Coliseum on September 9th. I have only seen KISS in concert one other time. That was just before I joined the Marine Corps in 1996. I saw them in Lexington, Kentucky, near my hometown. I have decided to stay in Richmond, Virginia upon retiring from the Marine Corps and want to seize the opportunity to close out my military career by coming FULL CIRCLE and seeing KISS ALIVE one more time! I have spent 20 years of my life as a U.S Marine. I have traveled the world and lived in so many places: California, Japan, Thailand, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. So much blood, sweat, and tears have been shed over those years and to think KISS were there for me in the beginning and they are still stronger than ever today! That is really amazing to think about! I have been a fan since 1983, when I was 11 years old. I bought the best tickets available for the Richmond show, which are in the second row, center stage, but I recently learned about the "Roadie for a Day" promotion for the Freedom to Rock Tour and how KISS have asked service members to join them on stage in certain cities. I would be very grateful for the opportunity to be Roadie for a Day at the Richmond, Virginia show on September 9th. Would you please consider me for this opportunity? I am readily available to participate any way I can! Please feel free to email or call me anytime. It would be an honor! Sincerely, Gunnery Sergeant James Eric Puckett

Disney World
Hi, my name is CPT Todd Sexton and I am currently deployed to Afghanistan. I have been married to my beautiful wife, Amanda for 9 years and we have two kids together. My son Cole who is 7 and daughter Emma who turns 3 in two weeks. I have served in the Army for a total of 15 years now and this is my fourth combat deployment. Two to Iraq and two to Afghanistan. I have missed numerous anniversaries, birthdays, and holidays with my family. I was also deployed during the birth of my son. I would love nothing more than to be able to come home and take both of my children to Disney World to celebrate. I will get home just prior to my sons birthday and it would be great to see those kids faces when I could tell them "we're going to Disney World". My daughter is in that phase right now where she loves princesses and my son loves Star Wars and he really wants to see the Star Wars section at the park. It would be truly special to me to be able to take my wife there for all of the hard work that she has put in over the last three deployments. My son is an exceptional family member due to autism and she has a full time job trying to take care of him, get to all of his therapies, and wrangle my daughter all at the same time. She never complains and "always" puts myself and the kids first. For once I would love to surprise her and take her on vacation so she can relax a little and have a good time. I am requesting six tickets so that my mother and father-in-law can go with us in case my son has any issues while at the parks. Sometimes he has a hard time with crowds but if we have additional help then he and my daughter should be able to get the full Disney experience. Disney does such a great job with kids that have special needs and that is why I am choosing Disney. Thanks for your support and God Bless America!!

Disney World Trip
My name is Staff Sargent Bryan Tate. I have been serving on active duty for 12 years. I am currently deployed to Iraq on my forth tour. I have been married to the most amazing woman in the world for 11 years, and we have 2 incredible kids together Ethan (7), and Greyson (4). In the spring of 2015 my parents started planning a Disney World trip scheduled to take place end of May 2016. Unfortunately I was tasked short notice for the current deployment I am on in Iraq. Due to the timing my parents could not reschedule the trip for my return this fall. Having to break the news to our boys that not only I was leaving for a deployment, but we also had to cancel the Disney World trip they had been looking forward to all year was devastating. So my wife and I have been trying to save funds to take our boys at the end of October when I return. We are kindly asking for four park hopper tickets to Disney World, so we can take our boys on the trip that we promised them. Thank you very much for all your support.
