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.

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

Take My Girls to Disney World
After 12 years on off with the Marine Corps I was injured while running a scout team through the city of Fallujah, Iraq. I spent 7 months back and forth from a hospital in Bethesda, Maryland only to have the VA lose all my medical records. I've had a battle nonstop since 2008 just to get a proper claim submitted. I've battled PTSD and lost my best friends due to this epidemic. I finally feel as if I'm in control of this and heading in the right direction being a good husband and father. Still being run through the system with the VA I was supposed to be at 100% since I'm not allowed to work due to a spinal issue and brain injury. So I found a Purple Heart site that offered to send my family to Disney World as long as I saved money for our flights. Well it turned out to be a scam and like that the site was pulled. I don't want to let my family down and would appreciate any help. Our plan was to stay at Disney for a few days then drive to Space Coast and stay a few more days. Any info even on discounts or to help save any money would be greatly appreciated.

Patriots Game
My name is Richard Olson. I was medically retired out of the military after stepping on an IED. I received a number of injuries severe PTSD, severe TBI which resulted in me learning how to walk and talk again. Ankle injury, jaw and teeth injury, shoulder injury, burn on my face and and severe tinnitus. During my 13 years in the army I have trained so much, been on 5 deployments and then after arriving home I had hospital stays and time alone for personal recovery. I am trying so hard to find my place in my family and bond with my children who I have missed out on their lives so much. I have a 13 year old daughter, a 11 year old son and a 9 year old son with down syndrome that I am trying to get to know and understand. I am originally from Massachusetts and many times I missed Patriots games on TV and opportunities to go. That is one thing everyone in my family loves, It would mean the world to me to be able to go to a Patriots game as a family and enjoy that experience, that would be a priceless gift to me. I also want to do this as a thank you to my wife as well for standing by me and raising great kids, taking care of me when I was at my worst and needed her the most, she is so self less and has been the back bone of this family, I know she would never stop smiling to be able to watch a game in person. I have lost soldiers and friends, it is something I battle with everyday I have good days and bad days and I feel bad for my family that this is the way I am now. I am asking for 4 tickets to see the Patriots play. My wife advised me that our son with downs syndrome unfortunately will be over stimulated and not be able to handle it. God Bless.

Disney World Trip
In Dec 2012 I left my 2 boys, 7 & 3 to deploy to Afghanistan with NMCB 15. I returned home in Oct 2013 jut after my boys birthdays. in Jan 2014, less than 90 days later, I left again to deploy back to Afghanistan with NMCB 25. When I told my boys that i had to leave again it was very difficult for them to understand why i was leaving when I just got home. I asked them what special thing they wanted to do when i returned home and they said they wanted to go to Disney and meet Mickey Mouse. I promised that we would go and I am also taking my parents who have handled my finances while i was gone. With their help I was able to get out of debt and they will help me with the boys while at Disney. I will be able to take my oldest on the big rides while they watch my youngest. I am expecting to be home mid Nov 2014 and will take my family to Disney 4-10 Dec. I am looking for 2 senior, 2 children and 1 adult park hopper tickets for 5 days.

Family Disneyland
My name is SPC Amado R. Punto Jr. I am currently deployed in Romania. From Aug 2011 to Sept 2012 I had my first deployment and spent time with my family in the Philippines on Apr 2012 during R & R. I went back to Fort Riley on Aug. 2012 and was reassigned to my current unit 165th MCT , 541st Combat Sustainment Support battalion. Before the end of year 2013, my family visas were finally approved and they came to states on Dec 30 2013. After 45 days of being together again I got deployed to Romania from 15 February 2014 until present. My wife and kids were only in the states for a month before I was deployed. My wife, my two sons ages 10 and 13 and daughter 17 are staying now in Oxnard , California. Their only wish at this time is for me to give them a time for family bonding after deployment and they want it in Disneyland in Anaheim. Their wish since their childhood might come through with your support and will really appreciate it with all my heart.

Disneyland for My Amazing Family!
I am coming home a little early to surprise my kids after a long deployment. Not only our we celebrating my return but we will also finalize my sons adoption! We are looking for 6 Disneyland tickets and would love park hopper or even the special military 3 day but would be overjoyed if we could get 4 tickets. With the cost of the flight home from deployment being out of our own pocket any and all family money has gone to air fair. With so much to celebrate I feel we should do it at the happiest place on earth DISNEYLAND! With myself, wife and four kids its a small fortune for us to go out to dinner let alone Disneyland.
