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.

Six Flags Magic Mountain
My name is Jereme Schuchard. I am a wounded veteran. I was awarded purple heart for damages to my neck and shoulder. I was at the 1996 khobar towers bombing by Al Queda upon AF & Army compound in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. I was eating Dominos pizza for dinner and then boom! 19 fellow soldiers died. 236 including myself were injured. My wish is for 4 tickets to Disney Land for me and my family. This hero's gift will bring great joy to my family & I! I thank you all very much!

Take My Family to Disney World Before My Surgery
Hi there, I'm SPC Jason Walker. I'm a former Marine and current Soldier in the Army. On my third deployment I stepped on a landmine that resulted in the instant amputation of my left leg and my right leg was blown apart. I fought to keep the leg and after 6 months and tons of surgeries I learned to walk again. I've been doing better but my limb salvage has been having increasing problems and on April 22nd I'll be having surgery on it again. This time it may result in the amputation of my right leg above the knee. Before I'm back down for a while I was hoping that I could take my wife and kids to Disney World in Orlando, Fl. I'm requesting 5 four day hopper tickets. My family has been my life line, and I'd love to allow them a chance to have fun and get away for a few days. They have been the reason I take each step further on my recovery. Please help me give my family a memorable vacation, thank you.

Family Vacation to Walt Disney World Orlando
I am SSG Anders, I would love to take my family to Walt Disney World Orlando after I return from my current deployment. I have four awesome children with my beautiful wife whom I have been married to for 13 years. I have only got to spend 10 months in the states since 2009 and cannot wait to return from this deployment. The baby is 2 now and I have missed most of her life. I cannot wait to spend some time and get to know her. I would need 6 tickets due to having four children and myself and the wife. Thank you!

Disney on Ice: Frozen in Dallas, Texas
My name is 1LT Bailey, Zyralyn. Thank you Vet Tix for this wonderful opportunity to get this chance to spend quality time with my family that we have lost during my deployment. During May and June 2014 my husband and I were both sent overseas for a 9 month deployment. We have a little girl name Zoey, I would like for our family to come together again and to attend Disney on Ice: Frozen in Dallas, Texas. This would be a wonderful event to share with my family to get back what we have missed.

Universal Studios Oralndo
My name is Scott Gerber. I am currently on my 5th deployment overseas and my 2nd time in Kuwait. I return in April 2015 to my wife of 14 years Leigha, my 13 year old daughter Madelyn and my 10 year old son Brayden. I would really like to take them to Universal Studios in Orlando, FL for a belated Christmas Present and would need 4 FL resident three day park to park tickets. This would be a great surprise for them when I return home and a much needed family vacation with them. Thank you so much for reading. I would be thankful for any tickets, God Bless America!

Disney World Orlando
My name is Robert Fleming and I served 12 years in the Army. I was recently medically retired as a Sergeant First Class in 2014 due to injuries that I sustained in combat. I have had multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan where I received 2 purple hearts. My service, deployments, and injuries have taken its toll on my wonder wife April who I've been married to for 11 years and she even quit work and nursing school to take care of me in the hospital while we were dating after I was injured in Iraq. After my injuries and hospital stays I regrouped and toughed it out for another decade, and more deployment. While this was satisfying personally for my career it took its toll on my body and my family as I wasn't there for them and I was gone the entire first year of my oldest due to deployment. I have three wonderful boys that are 4, 3, and 2 that are great. My oldest and youngest are autistic and though it is challenging they make our world brighter and better. They love the Disney channel and any and all Disney characters. We've never got a chance to take a family while I was active due to responsibilities, deployments, training, and medical issues. It actually is a wish and it would be a blessing if my family could go to Disney world in Orlando Florida. I am requesting and wishing that my family of 5 be able to go to Disney in Orlando for 2 days. Thank you and God bless Robert
