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.

Disney World post deployment trip
My name is 1st Lieutenant Keith Hutchison. My wife and I will be married 1 year in March, and will be coming off of our first deployment as well. I am a Combat Systems Officer (CSO) for JSTARS and will be going on my first deployment this fall to Al Udeid. This is going to be a super trying time on our marriage, and the first of many deployments. I'd love to give her a trip to DisneyWorld as a way to brighten up life after the deployment and reintegration. She's always wanted to go to Harry Potter World, and loves Disney as well so this trip would mean the world to us! I grew up in the military, so am used to the deployment and military orders life, whereas she isn't. So any way I can make this less of a trying time on her, the better and getting this wish fulfilled would be a great way to do that! Thanks for considering donating to our wish!

Disney World Day
When writing this I almost felt guilty asking complete strangers to listen to my story and donate to my wish. Then I thought it wasn't just my wish, it was a wish shared between my husband and myself. My name is Amanda Gilliam. I am a gold star spouse. I lost my husband SGT Adam K Gilliam on August 23, 2014. When we married, we didn't have time to plan a expensive wedding. With his work schedule and funds limited, we discussed having a wedding and honeymoon at a later date. He always promised to take me to Disney World- to meet Winnie the Pooh, who is my favorite. Every Valentine's day he would buy me a character from the classic and newer cartoon. He made a promise we would go and as silly as it sounds I want to fulfill it even though he can't be with me in person. We unfortunately weren't blessed with children yet but we were just 2 big kids at heart. I was barely 28 when he passed and I'm keeping the happy with me not the sad. I would like to say thank you for the consideration and for reading my story! God bless.

Daytona 500
My name is SSG Robert Roesch. I was injured on January 28th 2010 by an IED blast just outside Kandahar, Afghanistan. I am married and have 3 beautiful children. My wife cares for and all of us and is the strongest person I know. We are huge fans of Dale Earnhardt Jr and would love to attend the 2017 Daytona 500. Due to our finances we have only ever been able to attend a few local races with tickets from WWP. It has been at least 3 years since we have even been away from home and really need to get away. I don't do good around large groups of people but at a NASCAR event I feel relaxed and safe because of the atmosphere NASCAR provides. Requesting 5 tickets, one for each family member.

Disney World vacation
My name is Donna Cutchall. My sons and I lost the greatest man in our lives 12 years ago in Iraq. My sons were 4 and 6 years old when it happened. All of us had talked about making plans to go to Disney World when he got back home, but that never happened. My sons now are 16 and 18 and still to this day want to go. My wish is to take my boys to Disney World. We are unable to go because of my current income. I just lost my sons social security money and lost my job. Out of all the wishes we could request, this one would help us feel more complete. Doing what we would have done if SSGT Christopher Cutchall were still alive.

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.

Post-Deployment Disney World for Christmas
My Name is Ben Ackerman. I will be returning home after 6 months away from my family. This is my 5th deployment in my career, but has been especially hard for my kids as they are now getting older (10 and 12) and it had been a few years since I have been away from them. I come home in November and want to take them to Disney for Christmas from the 23rd to the 27th, so would love to get 4-Day park hopper passes to really enjoy some time with my family this Christmas.
