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.

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.

Disney World Family Trip
Hello, I am SPC Sam Pearson, I am currently deployed to Afghanistan, this is my 2nd deployment. My first deployment was with 10th Mountain Division, conducting route clearance with combat engineers, this deployment I am with the Infantry out of Fort Bliss. My first time away from 2 of my kids, My wife and I have 3 together. Two of them were born between the first deployment and this one. As far as our children, One is currently 5 months old, and the other is nearly two. And the third has just turned 5. None of my family, including myself have ever been to Disney World, or even Florida. And we have figured it would be a dream trip upon my return. I am looking to take my family on a trip to Disney World.

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.

Post Deployment Disneyland Wish
Hello my name is SSG Imelda Alaimaleata. I am proudly serving in the Army. I am currently deployed in Djibouti, Africa for 6 months, and I should be redeploying in July. This is my very first deployment, and so far this is the hardest, especially leaving behind my kids and spouse. Being away from family is one of the hardest things in life. As a soldier, this is the norm, because we would always be gone - whether it be deploying, attending schools, or in training. My wish is to take my family of four to Disneyland this July. I want to spend our family time and the remainder of summer at Disneyland before my kids go back to school. Also since I will be missing out on their birthdays this year. I want to make it up to my family! I would really appreciate it if you would help me and my family fulfill this wish. Thank you all & God Bless!!

Legoland - Orlando
Hi! My name is Sgt Joshua Horne. I lost my best friend in 2009, the day I was wounded. I later discovered infidelity within my first marriage which resulted in losing my family. Shortly thereafter, God led me to my current wife and, we were able to obtain sole custody of my kids which allowed us to be a blended family. We haven't had a honeymoon or anything and I'd really love to share in a family vacation. My world is complete, especially with the arrival of our now 18 month old daughter. We have 5 kids; 9,8,8,6 and 18 months. We have all girls and one boy. My wish is to be able to all go on a vacation and spend some much needed quality family time. I'd love to be able to take them to Legoland when I return around Sept 2017.

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.
