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.

First Family Vacation to Disney World
My name is AT3 Galloway and I just left for my second deployment with the USS Harry S Truman. I am leaving behind 3 wonderful kids aged 5, 2 1/2, and one month old. I am also leaving behind a wonderful wife, who is also an army veteran that has deployed twice to Iraq. When I return home this deployment I hope to be able to do something special for the family. Due to training, underway, and deployments, in the last 4 years I have been away from home more than I have been there. I would love for the family to be able to reconnect after this deployment. I also hope to bond with my youngest who will not know me on return. I hope to take the family to Disney world for 4-5 days at the end of summer. It is also around my wife's birthday, and she is truly the glue that hold the family together. Thank you for any help.

Disneyland - California Dreamin '!
My name is Sgt. Robert Aiken. I have two wonderful daughters, ages 5 and 10, Disneyland is our dream of a lifetime! Born in Orange, California I have fond memories of Disneyland while my father, also a Marine, was stationed at El Toro. In 2000 I enlisted in the Marine Corps serving two combat tours beginning with the invasion of Iraq in 2003. In 2004 I got shot up pretty good in Ar Ramadi during a fire fight and subsequently retired medically in 2005. Currently residing in north Texas I've been married to the love of my life for 12 years now. Her unending love makes our lives special everyday. The magic of Disneyland for a few days in sunny southern California is surely in order for her especially. Thank you for your consideration and making dreams come true. God bless.

Justin Bieber
My Dads name is Sgt. Ian Thomas Sanchez. He died when his M Gator utility vehicle hit an IED during a security sweep. My name is Jesse and In 2011 I was diagnosed with my first brain tumor. I had to spend a very lonely two months in the hospital and a few years of rehab. Having an acquired brain injury changed my life in every aspect. My Mom who is chronically very sick could not stay with me and my Dad was KIA. I had a nice roommate, but felt sad I didn't have my Mother to stay with me. I used to Listen to Justin Beibers Song " Pray." It is what got me through that nightmare. Although I have another brain tumor, the prognosis is better than the first kind I had. Every day is a struggle with my health. Due to a lot of medical expenses, I can't afford to see Justin Bieber on his tour. I would love to take a friend with me and my Step Dad (my Mom would never let me go alone).

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.
