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

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 warriors 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.

Ny Yankees Game to See Derek Jeter Play
My name is Henry Rossi. I served as a Lance Corporal with the 1st Marine Division during the 1968 Tet Offensive at Quingai Province, Vietnam. During the Battle I became severely wounded and lost a leg. My wish is to attend a New York Yankees day game this season to see Derek Jeter play (this is his last year). A friend will assist me in traveling. I would like to sit in the handicapped section. If possible four tickets would be great, in order to share this experience with my buddies.. Thank you for your consideration and Cheers to VET TIX for the outstanding Hero's Wish Program

Patriots Game
My name is Richard Olson. I was medically retired out of the military after stepping on an IED. I received a number of injuries severe PTSD, severe TBI which resulted in me learning how to walk and talk again. Ankle injury, jaw and teeth injury, shoulder injury, burn on my face and and severe tinnitus. During my 13 years in the army I have trained so much, been on 5 deployments and then after arriving home I had hospital stays and time alone for personal recovery. I am trying so hard to find my place in my family and bond with my children who I have missed out on their lives so much. I have a 13 year old daughter, a 11 year old son and a 9 year old son with down syndrome that I am trying to get to know and understand. I am originally from Massachusetts and many times I missed Patriots games on TV and opportunities to go. That is one thing everyone in my family loves, It would mean the world to me to be able to go to a Patriots game as a family and enjoy that experience, that would be a priceless gift to me. I also want to do this as a thank you to my wife as well for standing by me and raising great kids, taking care of me when I was at my worst and needed her the most, she is so self less and has been the back bone of this family, I know she would never stop smiling to be able to watch a game in person. I have lost soldiers and friends, it is something I battle with everyday I have good days and bad days and I feel bad for my family that this is the way I am now. I am asking for 4 tickets to see the Patriots play. My wife advised me that our son with downs syndrome unfortunately will be over stimulated and not be able to handle it. God Bless.

Take My Family to Disneyland
My name is SSG George Aaron. I have a beautiful wife Susie, who is the highlight of my life. We have been blessed with 2 amazing children, Kassidy 3, and Eddie 2. Kassidy was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Delay Syndrome, which is on the Autism Spectrum. My wife is such a god sent, and I feel extremely sad that in the 6 years of our relationship and marriage I have been away for almost 3 of those years. My wife has dealt with the burdens of my deployments, as well as the struggles with raising the children, never once complaining. I would like to be able to take them to Disney Land, and treat my wife to an amazing trip since we have never had time for a honeymoon.

Take My Family to Disneyland
My name is Spec 4 David Richards. I have a beautiful and very supportive wife who's Native American and her name is Blue. She is one of the greatest things in my life. We have been blessed with 4 children: David, Dawn Marie, Heather and Kellianne. I served in Vietnam from Dec. 1967 thur Nov. 1968. I was a dog handler. I walked point on an ambush and Recon squad until I was hit on Oct. 20th 1968. My dog saved the squad from being ambushed. The second time she saved a squad from being ambushed she was awarded a Bronze Star for her contribution. I'm a service connected disabled veteran. My wife and children put up with a lot abuse while I was servicing my tour in Nam. When I returned to 'The World' due to this not being a popular conflict, Americans elected to express their anti-war feelings both with words and by throwing objects; on those that served and their families. This experience led me to ask myself if this was America? I served to honor my uncles memory who died after being captured by the enemy in the Korean War. I believe in freedom for all and respect all individuals. I would like to show my family the other-side of the American spirit by taking them to Disneyland. I would like 6 Disneyland 2 day park hopper passes (tickets), But we would be happy and appreciative of any cost relief offered. We plan on going in Oct. 2014 on the 30th and returning home on Nov. 1st. God bless those that have served, their families and God Bless America. Thank you for your consideration.

Disney World Trip
In Dec 2012 I left my 2 boys, 7 & 3 to deploy to Afghanistan with NMCB 15. I returned home in Oct 2013 jut after my boys birthdays. in Jan 2014, less than 90 days later, I left again to deploy back to Afghanistan with NMCB 25. When I told my boys that i had to leave again it was very difficult for them to understand why i was leaving when I just got home. I asked them what special thing they wanted to do when i returned home and they said they wanted to go to Disney and meet Mickey Mouse. I promised that we would go and I am also taking my parents who have handled my finances while i was gone. With their help I was able to get out of debt and they will help me with the boys while at Disney. I will be able to take my oldest on the big rides while they watch my youngest. I am expecting to be home mid Nov 2014 and will take my family to Disney 4-10 Dec. I am looking for 2 senior, 2 children and 1 adult park hopper tickets for 5 days.
