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 Disneyland Vacation
My name is Lt Col Troy Dupont. I have served in the Air Force for 19 years and spent over three of them on deployments. I have just returned from my 5th deployment; a long 1-year separation from my family. Upon redeployment, I received orders to move overseas within 2 months. My wish is for a family vacation to Disneyland in May 2017. I am requesting (6) Park Hopper passes. We are looking to create one last memory in the US and surprise our 4 children (Eli, Evelyn, Emilia, & Edison... the E-team) with a trip to Disneyland before we have to head to port. My family has sacrificed so much over the years, and I am appreciative of any donations provided. The cost of moving overseas is very high and your generosity will truly help us offset the cost of this dream vacation. God bless!

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 name is 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.

Route 91 Harvest Festival
Hello, I am currently a Marine Corps Sergeant on active duty with 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, 1st Marine Division. I returned from a 7 month deployment in mid September, which had a very long and busy workup to. My Girlfriend and I were unable to spend a lot of time together and missed out on many music events because of the workup and deployment. She and I are big fans of county music and would love the opportunity to attend the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas this year. Thank you all for everything you do for the Military! God bless.

Disneyland
My name is TSgt David Velarde. I was in the US Navy for 10 years and decided to leave the Navy and join the US Air Force and have been in for the past 5 years.The toughest part about being in the military is watching your children grow up in pictures. I would love to be able to take my beautiful family to Disneyland to try to make up for all the missed birthdays and holidays. I would like to make a Hero's wish to request (4) Disneyland 3-day park hopper tickets for my family; My wife Shantay and three kids; David Andrew 15, Cheyanne 12, and Austin 2. Any and all donations will be greatly appreciated. Thank you and God Bless.

Metallica Concert
My son and I are huge Metallica Fans (my wife a little too) and we were so excited when we heard about their 2017 tour.  It is my wish that we could see them in San Diego (or Los Angeles) this year prior to me reporting to my next deployable unit. We've never seen the Metal Gods and it has been a dream of ours for a few years. I am a Navy Corpsman and will be assigned to a Marine Infantry unit whom I will soon deploy with.  There is no preparation that gets your mind ready to leave your family for 6 months, all you can do is come together and make the best of the time you have with each other.  This summer will be my family's last time together for a while, and attending the Metallica Concert would be a perfect send off and lasting memory for us to refer back to during our second deployment.
