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.

NFL Dallas Cowboys Home Game
My name is SGT Newell, Catherine & I am currently deployed. This 9 month deployment has been mentally and physically exhausting due to living in an austere environment, experiencing multiple IED blast traumas, closing down the camp while retrograding equipment, building a new hospital in a different locations, organizing/setting up a new hospital, & lastly missing my family. I have been happily married for the the past 8 years. We have 3 beautiful children, Will (15), Khalil (9), and Aniya (6). We are a dual military family & we have been separated a few times, thus causing hardship on our family. I have missed my wedding anniversary, kids & husbands birthdays & summers with kids. During the duration of my deployment, my husband Kyle, has held the fort down as a single parent caring for all 3 children, while still fulfilling his active duty obligation. We have not been on a honeymoon in 7 years. I think it would be grand if I could take my family on an excursion to a Dallas Cowboys Home game. Football is a big deal in our household. It unites our family and friends. Everyone wears their football jerseys & it's game on! My husband has been a life-long Cowboys fan since he was a child. The kids are following in his foot steps. Since the new Dallas stadium was built, Kyle has always dreamed of attending a game. I would like to show a token of my appreciation by taking him to a particular game- Dallas Cowboys v. Indianapolis Colts on 21 Dec 2014. I am requesting that particular day due to me still being currently deployed & I should be redeploying during Thanksgiving. This would be a great welcome home & holiday gift. I would love to see the surprise look on my family's face. I am asking for 4 to 6 tickets due to us having a family of 5, & if possible having my husband's close friend attend as well. I would be ever so grateful for whatever amount of tickets you all could offer, even if it's just 2 tickets. I appreciate the opportunity & thank you all for even considering my application.

Six Flags Magic Mountain
My name is Jereme Schuchard. I am a wounded veteran. I was awarded purple heart for damages to my neck and shoulder. I was at the 1996 khobar towers bombing by Al Queda upon AF & Army compound in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. I was eating Dominos pizza for dinner and then boom! 19 fellow soldiers died. 236 including myself were injured. My wish is for 4 tickets to Disney Land for me and my family. This hero's gift will bring great joy to my family & I! I thank you all very much!

4 Day Passes to Disney World
I separated from active duty back in 2012. In September of 2011 on my last deployment I was blown up by a VBIED (truck packed with 1500 lbs of explosives) receiving the purple heart and being sent back to the united states medically. After I got out I had to start different treatments through the VA and haven't been able to truly get away and go on a vacation. So now that my health is stable we don't really have the money for a big vacation like this. So it is my wish to take my wife and two kids to Disney world for a once in a lifetime experience.

Disneyland California
I am graciously requesting 4-3 day park hopper tickets to Disneyland in California for my 2 daughters, my wife and myself. My Name is TSgt Russ Pollock and I have served in the US Air Force as a Civil Engineer for 17.5 years. I am currently on my 5th Deployment to the middle east and have also done 2 one year remote tours in Korea. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for a little over 16 years and she has held down the fort for every deployment and remote tour. She is my hero. I have 2 daughter, ages 6 and 3. It would bring them so much joy to be able to spend a few days at Disneyland. They to have also endured much sacrifice as i have been away overseas for over half of my 6 year olds life. It would mean the world to us if you are able to fulfill this wish. Thank You

Universal Studios
My name is Michael Costanzo, I am severely disabled veteran. I work for a non-profit where I help my fellow veterans, even giving from my own pocket so they can eat. I have stretched myself pretty thin. I really need to take a break. I am looking to take my family on some much needed R&R. We need to reconnect as a family. I cannot remember the last time we have all gotten in the car, headed to a vacation spot and enjoyed each other. We are looking to go to Orlando, FL and visit Universal for two days. There are 6 of us.
