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

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 Vet Tix 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.

Disney World Park Hopper passes for Gold Star Family
My name is Rachel Gillette and I am the proud daughter of Col. Stephen Scott. My father, Col. Scott gave the ultimate sacrifice to our country on April 6, 2008 while defending our country in Bagdad, Iraq. Col. Stephen Scott served in the Army for almost 30 years and was a true American Hero who is greatly missed every day. I am an older surviving child and I do not qualify for any of the trips that are offered for children and I have always felt like I am alone in my journey as I continue to heal. One of my most memorable trips that I took as a young child with my dad was to Disney World in Orlando, Florida and I would be grateful for the opportunity to take my 4 children on a surprise family vacation. As we all know, Disney World is costly and I have already contacted Shades of Green for our lodging and they are able to offer us a discounted rate as we are a Gold Star family. Our wish is for 6 four day park hopper passes. My family is so proud of our hero and would be overjoyed to take a trip together to create memories and remember our HERO Col. Stephen Scott. Thank you and God Bless!

Disneyland Park Hopper Passes
Hello, I am MSgt Douglas McGraw & have served in the USAF for 22+ years. I'm the 3rd generation of my family who's been proud to have served our great nation. My Grandfather was a WWII Battle of the Bulge and Dachau concentration camp liberator, my father who served in the 82nd Airborne from Dominican Republic, Air Cavalry in Vietnam 65 LZ X-ray and then finally the Gulf War in the Air National Guard. I myself have just returned from a 1yr deployment to Kandahar Afghanistan as an Advisor to the Afghan Air Force working daily side by side with my Afghan counterparts. I am married to my wife Sue for 22yrs and been together for 24years. We have 2 grown children Michaela & Heather. This has been my 5th career contingency deployment among countless other times spent away from my wife Sue who has been by my side faithfully for longer than my military career. The past year saw high stress and even family member death affect our whole family but our marriage in particular suffered. My wife and I have always been in unity in putting our children's needs above our own, to the point of signing over my GI bill to our children. Additionally while in Afghanistan I adopted a stray dog that strayed onto our end of the flightline in Kandahar that has made transition back to daily stateside life a bit stressful. My deep felt wish is to surprise my wife and take her on that long overdue fun filled vacation to show her and my girls how much I appreciate their support. If anyone is able to help bless us, I wish to take them on a 4 day Disneyland park hopper pass. I appreciate Vet Tix for giving Veteran's this amazing platform and to all those who support our men and women in uniform. God bless MSgt Douglas McGraw

Route 91 Harvest Festival
Hello, I am currently a Marine Corps Sergeant on active duty with 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, 1st Marine Division. I returned from a 7 month deployment in mid September, which had a very long and busy workup to. My Girlfriend and I were unable to spend a lot of time together and missed out on many music events because of the workup and deployment. She and I are big fans of county music and would love the opportunity to attend the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas this year. Thank you all for everything you do for the Military! God bless.

Post Deployment Family Vacation to Universal Studios
I am Master Sergeant Samuel Cole and I am currently deployed and have been since September 2016. My wife Kassandra is also active duty and is at home in Nebraska while I am away. She was most recently deployed from December 2014 through April 2015. We've had to cancel our plans three times due to these deployments and a PCS, to go to Universal Studios, Orlando with our children. We would both like to make up for these broken plans and take our four children to Universal Studios Orlando in September 2017. We are a blended family and one thing that has brought us all together is Harry Potter. It would be an incredible experience to get all of us together to experience the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. We would appreciate 3-day park to park tickets to lighten some of the cost of the trip. Thank you in advance. Sincerely, MSgt Samuel Cole, USAF

Disney World Family Trip
Hello, I am SPC Sam Pearson, I am currently deployed to Afghanistan, this is my 2nd deployment. My first deployment was with 10th Mountain Division, conducting route clearance with combat engineers, this deployment I am with the Infantry out of Fort Bliss. My first time away from 2 of my kids, My wife and I have 3 together. Two of them were born between the first deployment and this one. As far as our children, One is currently 5 months old, and the other is nearly two. And the third has just turned 5. None of my family, including myself have ever been to Disney World, or even Florida. And we have figured it would be a dream trip upon my return. I am looking to take my family on a trip to Disney World.

Discovery Cove
My name is US Air Force Chaplain, James Armstrong. I am currently deployed to Afghanistan for 6 months. I return from the AOR in April and hope to go to Florida with my family in May to reconnect. This year is especially hard as my two kids will be leaving home for college. I essentially lost their last year at home with them. My wish is to take my family to swim with the dolphins at the Discovery Cove in Orlando, FL.
