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.

WWE WRESTLEMANIA 2017
My name is SSG Williams Carlton Anthony. In 2009 I bought tickets to Wrestlemania 2010 but had to give them away because of deployment. My wish is to go to 2017 Wrestlemania, which is being held in Orlando and my sons who are both wrestling fans have asked me to go. I have been watching WWE since 1984 and have never been fortunate enough to attend a live event. It would mean the world to me to take my boys as a surprise. I end my current deployment and return stateside in February.

Post Deployment Disneyland Wish
Hello my name is SSG Imelda Alaimaleata. I am proudly serving in the Army. I am currently deployed in Djibouti, Africa for 6 months, and I should be redeploying in July. This is my very first deployment, and so far this is the hardest, especially leaving behind my kids and spouse. Being away from family is one of the hardest things in life. As a soldier, this is the norm, because we would always be gone - whether it be deploying, attending schools, or in training. My wish is to take my family of four to Disneyland this July. I want to spend our family time and the remainder of summer at Disneyland before my kids go back to school. Also since I will be missing out on their birthdays this year. I want to make it up to my family! I would really appreciate it if you would help me and my family fulfill this wish. Thank you all & God Bless!!

Disney World
Hi Everyone! Thank you so much for taking a moment to read this and for supporting our military! I am currently on active duty, approaching my 12 year mark and just returned from deployment. We are a family of 6 and I would love the opportunity to spend either Christmas or Thanksgiving at Walt Disney World with my family this year since I missed being home with them in 2016. Disney World is our family's "happy place" and even though our children are growing up (we have one graduating high school in June) and getting older, Disney has a way of bringing us all closer together. I would especially like to be able to take them to the Very Merry Christmas Party one evening! Thank you again for all of your support!

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

Dreaming of a trip to Disney World
My name is Sergeant First Class Chad Harris. I am a proud member of the Army National Guard and am currently on my third deployment. I am not one who typically seeks gratitude or donations because of my service, as I serve because I want to. With that, I have openly promised for several years now to my girls that we would take a trip to Disney World and unfortunately, due to my deployments, it hasn't been able to happen. My wish is to be able to take my three beautiful daughters on a fantasy vacation to Disney World. Although my wife and I have tried to make this trip a reality several times in the past, life and more pressing issues requiring our attention and finances have led to having to shelve the trip indefinitely. All I am asking for is for the tickets for my wife and daughters (a total of four) so that we can finally make this dream come true.

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
