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.

Post Deployment Disney World Trip
My name is SFC Jesus J Ortega. I am an Infantryman in the US Army. I have been serving for 15 years and I am currently on my 5th deployment to Iraq. Over the last 15 years, I have been away from my family in support of operations in Iraq for a total of 5 years. Although I consider it an honor and privilege to serve Our Nation, the toughest part has and always will be, being separated from my Family. I would like to make a Hero's wish to request (4) Disney World 4-day park hopper tickets for my family; My wife Lilly and three Sons; Damien 14, Caleb 13, and Josue 8. My family and I have always tried to make up for the lost time after each deployment and I truly believe that a trip to Disney World in Florida would top ANY post deployment trip we have ever done!

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!

2017 F1 US Grand Prix
My Sergeant Troy Thomas. I am currently post-deployment from my second tour in Afghanistan. I am working my way into being more comfortable in crowds and social settings. I am a HUGE Formula One fan and missed most of the past few seasons due to deployments. I have not been to Austin, TX to see the new facility or a race and I would love to take my wife and experience F1, one of my favorite sports. I would like to respectfully request tickets for the practice and qualifying sessions, along with the actual race. Regardless of what I may receive, I am grateful for the opportunity to share my love of F1 and I appreciate your consideration.

Disney World for my family
My name is Spc Stefan Zaldivar. I am currently serving on my second deployment away from my family and this one has been particularly hard on my wife and my three year old son as they have had to do everything on their own. My amazing wife has had to come mom, dad, driver, soccer coach, class teacher, on top of doing everything in the home on her own. Unable to take vacation because she took the time of to help me mobilize she is running on zero days off with a house two dogs and a toddler who is very confused as to why his daddy has had to miss Father's Day, His Birthday, Halloween, Thanksgiving, as well as this upcoming Christmas and other holidays. I am asking for 4 4-day park hopper tickets to allow me to repay my family for sacrificing so much while I have been gone and it getting these tickets it may help offset the cost to allow me to have them stay in a nice hotel and allow me to give them the magical experience that they deserve.

Hamilton Tickets
I am SGT Giovanni Jimenez. I have the opportunity to take leave in March of 2017 and I am hoping for the opportunity to see the hit musical Hamilton while visiting New York City. This musical was wildly popular while I was deployed to Kuwait and I always imagined that I would take my wife to see it when I returned home. I quickly discovered how difficult it is to obtain tickets to this sensational show. I am hoping that Vet Tix will allow me to have a once in a lifetime opportunity to see this show. I am requesting two tickets to a show on March 16th or March 17th, 2017.
