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.

Thanks to everyone that made our Disneyland Dream a reality! We really appreciate what you do for our military families! Thank you for all your support!

Submit A Hero's Wish

Are you currently on Active Duty Military (six months prior to combat deployment, six months after a deployment, or while on leave from deployment), a severely wounded warrior or a family member of someone who was killed in action (KIA)?

If you are and you have not received a wish from another wish-granting organization, then you are eligible for our Hero's Wish Program! All you need to do is complete a few easy steps and Veteran Tickets Foundation will get started on making your Hero's Wish come true!

NOTE: Veteran is allowed to submit 1 (ONE) lifetime wish. If wish goes unfilled, that still counts as your one lifetime wish.

Disney World Orlando
My name is Robert Fleming and I served 12 years in the Army. I was recently medically retired as a Sergeant First Class in 2014 due to injuries that I sustained in combat. I have had multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan where I received 2 purple hearts. My service, deployments, and injuries have taken its toll on my wonder wife April who I've been married to for 11 years and she even quit work and nursing school to take care of me in the hospital while we were dating after I was injured in Iraq. After my injuries and hospital stays I regrouped and toughed it out for another decade, and more deployment. While this was satisfying personally for my career it took its toll on my body and my family as I wasn't there for them and I was gone the entire first year of my oldest due to deployment. I have three wonderful boys that are 4, 3, and 2 that are great. My oldest and youngest are autistic and though it is challenging they make our world brighter and better. They love the Disney channel and any and all Disney characters. We've never got a chance to take a family while I was active due to responsibilities, deployments, training, and medical issues. It actually is a wish and it would be a blessing if my family could go to Disney world in Orlando Florida. I am requesting and wishing that my family of 5 be able to go to Disney in Orlando for 2 days. Thank you and God bless Robert

Disney World in Fl
I just recently returned from a 5th Fleet deployment on a Naval Patrol Coastal Ship. I have been promising my little guy for a few years now that we would take him to Disney World to meet Mickey and his other favorite characters. I would love to fulfill that promise and take my wife and 5 year old son to disney in Florida while on my post deployment leave. I have 30 days until I check into my next duty station and school. My window to go would be between 25Jan-06Feb 2015.
