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 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.

Hamilton on Broadway With My Family
My name is 1LT Moses Woo. The event I'd like to attend is a Broadway showing of the musical, Hamilton. The show is about one of our founding Fathers, and his successes. He had the ability to leave St Croix, join the military, become a Statesman, and one of our Treasury Secretaries. It would be amazing to see a live biopic of the American Hero and to be able to bring my family who has supported me throughout my military career. My family has supported me through all the training, deployment, and time away from home. Most recently I did a tour to Afghanistan and my parents really took a toll in terms of worrying and being separated from me. I would just like to treat them to something nice and to show them how the sacrifices can also be rewarding. Alexander Hamilton's sacrifices also allowed him to be successful and to be one of our great Founding Fathers, and I'd like to show my family this great mans' experience. Thank you for considering my wish.

Magical Getaway to Disney World
My name is SSgt Matthew Peluyera. I am currently serving in the USAF and on my first deployment. While I have been serving my country for the past year my wife is serving our family which consists of our two and a half year old daughter and our two large dogs. My wife has dealt with potty training, dogs going through surgery and recovery, working from home, working outside of the home, taking care of our house, helping a toddler through deployment, volunteering at church, toddler tantrums, holidays and family gatherings alone and all while going through her first deployment as well. My wife works tirelessly to make sure that our family is taken care of and most days without a break or help of any kind. I want more than anything to be able to give my wife a break. A break from dishes and laundry and taking care of everyone but herself. She loves Disney, as does my daughter and has always wanted to stay at the Fort Wilderness Lodge. Being able to take my wife and daughter on a four night trip to stay at the Fort Wilderness Lodge would not only allow my wife time to relax and unwind but also allow our family time to bond and grow closer without the distractions of everyday life. Over the last year I have been in Training or Deployed for both Mother's Day and my wife's birthday - the two times of year that I would normally get to spoil her. This trip would help me to show her how much she means to me and how much I appreciate her supporting me so that I can serve our country.

Post - Deployment Disneyworld
My name is TSgt. Christopher Gonzales. I will be deploying in a few months to the Middle East and upon return we are planning a Disney World vacation. I currently have a room booked at Shades of Green, but am very stressed about money. I'm still not even sure we can do this. I'm only an E-6 so funds are limited. We have never been to Disney World so this would be a special event for us. We have 5 kids and we are hoping to give them something to look forward to when I come back. My wish is for Four-day Disney World Park Hopper tickets for my family of 7. Last time I went away to Tech School for a couple months, our youngest child had a real hard time and I just want to makes sure her and all the rest of my family have a vacation to look forward to instead of the stress of our separation.

Carolina Panthers V. Denver Broncos
My name is SSG(P) Judah Africanus. I joined the United States Marine Corps at the age of 17 to support my then 2 year old son. At 18 I married my high school sweet heart and mother of my son. We have 4 children total 2 boys 2 girls(Lamar 19, Kiwan 14, Mackenzie 13, and Kayla 12). After 4 years in the Marines I decided to get out and try civilian life. After a while I started to miss the military so I joined the NC Army National Guard. However that did not satisfy me. So I went Active Duty Army. My eldest son and I are huge fans, and would love to opportunity to see them take on the Denver Broncos for some Thursday night football on 8 September 16. This game will be extra special because I will get to see it with my son before he goes off to college.

Disneyland 3 - Day Park Hopper Tickets
My name is SSgt Scott Heninger. I am currently serving in the USAF and on my fourth deployment in 12 years. While this is my first 365 day deployment, the family back home has to endure all of the life challenges without me. I have two wonderful women in my life, my wife of 8 years, and our daughter who is 6. We may have one of the hardest jobs, having to leave our family behind while we are all serving our country. But that is nothing compared to what our family's have to bare while we are away. My wife is the most amazing person I know working full time as a church secretary, she still has time to take care of our daughter, two dogs and the cat. This is no easy feat due to my wife being a paraplegic, paralyzed from her chest down, all because of a drunk driver. I am planning on coming home for my mid tour sometime in Nov. My wish is to surprise my family with something we have talked about for years, but just haven't had the funds to do. 3 Disneyland 3-Day Park Hopper Tickets would not only be a dream for my wife but for my daughter as well, she is always talking about all the princes and how she would love to meet one. But the most important thing for me would be the quality time you can spend with loved ones creating those lasting memories you will cherish for a lifetime. Thank you for considering my wish and to all who support these and other organizations that try and give back to all the brave men and women that serve this great country.

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.
