What is a Hero's Wish?

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 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 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 Surprise for My Wife and Daughter
My name is Spencer Gatwood. I am a Specialist in the United States Army. I have spent the last two years away from my lovely wife Keiran and beautiful daughter Emily. I am currently in Kuwait and come home this December I will finally have the chance to go home to my amazing family. After missing many birthdays and holidays over the last few years, I really want to make it up to my girls. They have both stood by me over the years and have been an endless source of support when times were tough. I'm hoping to surprise my daughter in Orlando, at Disney world. She has never been there, she doesn't know when I'm coming home and I know it would be a moment that she will never forget. My hope is to spend at least three days at the Disney parks with park hopper tickets. I'm not normally one to ask for help with things of this nature, but if the cost of the tickets were offset I could make the rest of the trip even more magical for my little princess. God Bless.

Disney World Trip
My name is Staff Sargent Bryan Tate. I have been serving on active duty for 12 years. I am currently deployed to Iraq on my forth tour. I have been married to the most amazing woman in the world for 11 years, and we have 2 incredible kids together Ethan (7), and Greyson (4). In the spring of 2015 my parents started planning a Disney World trip scheduled to take place end of May 2016. Unfortunately I was tasked short notice for the current deployment I am on in Iraq. Due to the timing my parents could not reschedule the trip for my return this fall. Having to break the news to our boys that not only I was leaving for a deployment, but we also had to cancel the Disney World trip they had been looking forward to all year was devastating. So my wife and I have been trying to save funds to take our boys at the end of October when I return. We are kindly asking for four park hopper tickets to Disney World, so we can take our boys on the trip that we promised them. Thank you very much for all your support.

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.

San Francisco 49ers vs. Dallas Cowboys
My name is Sgt. Martin Tellez. I will be deploying mid October 18-26 time frame. My wife and I have been wanting to attend a 49ers game before I leave for 7 months. My wish is to take my wife to see our favorite team the 49ers play before I deploy. It would be our little romantic day before I leave. I love playing soccer and along the lines I have found a passion in cutting hair I am a certified barber through the Navy. I am currently taking college classes as well pursuing my degree in business administration, I attend the school American Military University (AMU) I am about halfway done, Reason for me going back to school is because I plan to go the officer route in my career. I have 3 children who ages are 3, 2 , 1. Masen my eldest son is my strong warrior, he had open heart surgery at 4 months old but if you see him now you could never tell. Mateo Is my middle child and he is the sneaky one, of them all. Maite is my youngest and only girl, luckily she has 2 princes and a king guarding her castle. My wife Martha has been my supporter through it all. We have been together for 6 years (9/5/11). We met playing soccer at an indoor soccer arena. Since we have been together and I have been in the military, it has been hard to do things just us because of the fact we are far from family and hard to find baby sitters who can take all 3 of them. It would be a wonderful experience to enjoy on my last days around.

Disneyland 3 - Day Park Hopper Tickets
My name is SSgt Scott Heninger. I am currently serving in the USAF and on my fourth deployment in 12 years. While this is my first 365 day deployment, the family back home has to endure all of the life challenges without me. I have two wonderful women in my life, my wife of 8 years, and our daughter who is 6. We may have one of the hardest jobs, having to leave our family behind while we are all serving our country. But that is nothing compared to what our family's have to bare while we are away. My wife is the most amazing person I know working full time as a church secretary, she still has time to take care of our daughter, two dogs and the cat. This is no easy feat due to my wife being a paraplegic, paralyzed from her chest down, all because of a drunk driver. I am planning on coming home for my mid tour sometime in Nov. My wish is to surprise my family with something we have talked about for years, but just haven't had the funds to do. 3 Disneyland 3-Day Park Hopper Tickets would not only be a dream for my wife but for my daughter as well, she is always talking about all the princes and how she would love to meet one. But the most important thing for me would be the quality time you can spend with loved ones creating those lasting memories you will cherish for a lifetime. Thank you for considering my wish and to all who support these and other organizations that try and give back to all the brave men and women that serve this great country.
