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.

Patriots Game
My name is Richard Olson. I was medically retired out of the military after stepping on an IED. I received a number of injuries severe PTSD, severe TBI which resulted in me learning how to walk and talk again. Ankle injury, jaw and teeth injury, shoulder injury, burn on my face and and severe tinnitus. During my 13 years in the army I have trained so much, been on 5 deployments and then after arriving home I had hospital stays and time alone for personal recovery. I am trying so hard to find my place in my family and bond with my children who I have missed out on their lives so much. I have a 13 year old daughter, a 11 year old son and a 9 year old son with down syndrome that I am trying to get to know and understand. I am originally from Massachusetts and many times I missed Patriots games on TV and opportunities to go. That is one thing everyone in my family loves, It would mean the world to me to be able to go to a Patriots game as a family and enjoy that experience, that would be a priceless gift to me. I also want to do this as a thank you to my wife as well for standing by me and raising great kids, taking care of me when I was at my worst and needed her the most, she is so self less and has been the back bone of this family, I know she would never stop smiling to be able to watch a game in person. I have lost soldiers and friends, it is something I battle with everyday I have good days and bad days and I feel bad for my family that this is the way I am now. I am asking for 4 tickets to see the Patriots play. My wife advised me that our son with downs syndrome unfortunately will be over stimulated and not be able to handle it. God Bless.

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.

Take My Family to Disneyland
My name is Spec 4 David Richards. I have a beautiful and very supportive wife who's Native American and her name is Blue. She is one of the greatest things in my life. We have been blessed with 4 children: David, Dawn Marie, Heather and Kellianne. I served in Vietnam from Dec. 1967 thur Nov. 1968. I was a dog handler. I walked point on an ambush and Recon squad until I was hit on Oct. 20th 1968. My dog saved the squad from being ambushed. The second time she saved a squad from being ambushed she was awarded a Bronze Star for her contribution. I'm a service connected disabled veteran. My wife and children put up with a lot abuse while I was servicing my tour in Nam. When I returned to 'The World' due to this not being a popular conflict, Americans elected to express their anti-war feelings both with words and by throwing objects; on those that served and their families. This experience led me to ask myself if this was America? I served to honor my uncles memory who died after being captured by the enemy in the Korean War. I believe in freedom for all and respect all individuals. I would like to show my family the other-side of the American spirit by taking them to Disneyland. I would like 6 Disneyland 2 day park hopper passes (tickets), But we would be happy and appreciative of any cost relief offered. We plan on going in Oct. 2014 on the 30th and returning home on Nov. 1st. God bless those that have served, their families and God Bless America. Thank you for your consideration.

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.
