Disney World Surprise for my wife and daughter

Dec 8th 2016

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.

Green Bay Packer Game Lambeau Field

Dec 4th 2016

My name is Staff Sergeant Joshua M. Krueger. On February 28, 2005, my detail was struck by an improvised explosive device (IED). I was severely wounded in the blast and in critical condition. I was medically evacuated to Ballad, Iraq. I was then transferred to Landstuhl, Germany, and ultimately to the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. I suffered loss of vision to my left eye and sustained severe blast damage to my left arm. After numerous surgeries and rehabilitation, I was medically retired from the Marine Corps on November 26, 2006. I ended up having the injured eye removed in 2014. My wish is to take my twin daughters to their first Packers game for their birthday on December 4th. I am a huge Packers fan and would love to attend the game on December 4th where the Packers play the Houston Texans.

1-day Peak pass for Epcot for my family

Nov 25th 2016

Hello, my name is Staff Sgt. Thomas Duval. I am currently on my third deployment with the U.S. Army and set to return just in time for the holidays. My wish is to take my wife and three children to Disney's Epcot for one day during the long Thanksgiving weekend. Our three kids, 8yo, 6yo and 3yo, are counting down the days till my return and this would be the ultimate surprise. I have no sad stories. Like the thousands of military families, mine has had its struggles with the back to back deployments however, we get through them like all the other great military families. We are thankful for the military the opportunity to serve and we are thankful for organizations like this, who are trying to help make the impossible possible. Thank you for any considerations! The price requested is strictly for 1 day at Epcot for 2 adults and three children. Thank you all again.

Disneyland - California Dreamin'!

Nov 22nd 2016

My name is Sgt. Robert Aiken. I have two wonderful daughters, ages 5 and 10, Disneyland is our dream of a lifetime! Born in Orange, California I have fond memories of Disneyland while my father, also a Marine, was stationed at El Toro. In 2000 I enlisted in the Marine Corps serving two combat tours beginning with the invasion of Iraq in 2003. In 2004 I got shot up pretty good in Ar Ramadi during a fire fight and subsequently retired medically in 2005. Currently residing in north Texas I've been married to the love of my life for 12 years now. Her unending love makes our lives special everyday. The magic of Disneyland for a few days in sunny southern California is surely in order for her especially. Thank you for your consideration and making dreams come true. God bless.

Disney World for granddaughter...

Nov 21st 2016

My Name is Sherrie Norden. I am a Gold Star Daughter of USAF CAPT. CARL E. JACKSON MIA, VIETNAM, 27 JUNE 65. We asked our 11 year old granddaughter, if you could go anywhere on vacation, where would you want to go. Of course, she said Disney World. We booked our hotel (Wyndham Cypress Resort in Kissimmee, FL) for Thanksgiving week. As luck would have it, the transmission went out in our vehicle and due to that expense, had to cancel the trip. We can afford the hotel, but not theme park tickets :( Taylor has been a real trooper about it though.

Disneyland 3-Day Park Hopper Tickets

Nov 14th 2016

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.

Disney World

Nov 13th 2016

My name is Staff Sergeant Jeff Baker. I've been Active in the Army serving as a Airborne Ranger for over 11 years with 9 deployments (3 to Iraq and 6 to Afghanistan). In 2012 while serving on my 9th deployment I was injured by a Vehicle Borne IED. I've had 3 surgeries and countless hours of therapy. I've been trying to recover for nearly four years and I'm currently away from my wife and two daughters for three months to attend a special rehabilitation program in Virginia to help with my physical injuries, and my traumatic brain injury. After the stress of being away the past few months, my wish is to take my family to Walt Disney World after I return home. So I am asking for 3 military Park Hopper tickets to Disney World. Thank you greatly for the opportunity and consideration.

Disneyland Wish

Nov 10th 2016

My name is Capt. Ramon Leonguerrero. I want to take my family on a once in a lifetime vacation to Disneyland. I have missed so many birthdays and anniversaries for all 5 of our kids and this would be a great way to celebrate them all. I have only seen one of my children on their first birthday. With 5 kids it is so hard to have a family vacation. We would only need a total of 5 tickets for me, my wife, our daughter Mandi 22 in college, Emily 16, Natalie 4. We probably don't need tickets for the 2 smallest ones Rita 2 and Ramon Jr 1. Thank you for the consideration.

Hamilton on Broadway with my Family

Nov 8th 2016

My name is 1LT Moses Woo. The event I'd like to attend is a Broadway showing of the musical, Hamilton. The show is about one of our founding Fathers, and his successes. He had the ability to leave St Croix, join the military, become a Statesman, and one of our Treasury Secretaries. It would be amazing to see a live biopic of the American Hero and to be able to bring my family who has supported me throughout my military career. My family has supported me through all the training, deployment, and time away from home. Most recently I did a tour to Afghanistan and my parents really took a toll in terms of worrying and being separated from me. I would just like to treat them to something nice and to show them how the sacrifices can also be rewarding. Alexander Hamilton's sacrifices also allowed him to be successful and to be one of our great Founding Fathers, and I'd like to show my family this great mans' experience. Thank you for considering my wish.

My family has stood by me and supported me from all the time away from home. Thank you again so much to all the donors who have contributed to make this happen! ( to also include Vet Tix and the Hamilton Production Management - Mr. Berney even came out and greeted me and gifted me with a Hamilton music cd!)

 

DISNEY WORLD WISH

My name is Logistics Specialist First Class Quentin Keaton. I currently serve in the Navy, in Jacksonville Florida. From the moment we arrived I have been turning and burning. Due to my deployment schedule I have missed so much with my 7 year old, a couple of birthdays, holidays, and some first days of school. I have some much deserved leave coming up and would love to finally be able to take her to Disney World. She has never been and doesn't want to go without me, so this would mean so much to us both. My family has supported me throughout my military career and I would like to show them my appreciation. Thank you for considering my wish.

Sunday Night Football game Cowboys vs. Eagles

Oct 30th 2016

My name is Lcpl Jason Tuuri. I am a OEF/OIF combat wounded veteran. I received my purple heart from and IED blast in Marjah, Afghanistan in 2010. The blast shattered both of my heels and changed my life forever. Football is my life, and I love them Cowboys! I'm humbly asking for help in the donation for two tickets to the SNF game between the Cowboys and the Eagles. Having foot injuries, it is extremely difficult for me to stand for longer periods of time so I am looking for two comfortably seated tickets for the game. I'm wanting to surprise my brother in the event we can go to this game. He was my rock during the times where mentally I was at my lowest. I truly am blessed to have such a loving and supportive older brother and I would love to do something for him in return. Anything is appreciated and God Bless you all and God Bless America. My wish is for 2 Tickets to the Sunday Night Football game, Cowboys vs. Eagles

Family Trip To Disneyland

Oct 27th 2016

I am TSgt Jason Caceres and have served in the Air Force for over 18 years. I have a family of 5 so at times it is hard for me to afford to take my family to do fun things like this so I'm hoping this will allow me to do that for them. I have been married to my beautiful wife for 10 years now and we have 3 beautiful children. Over the last 18 years of service I have missed many birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays with my family. They have had to deal with my countless deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq and I have missed them growing up. My wife has been a trooper taking care of 3 kids while I have been away and dealing with her diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. I have known of Vet Tix for a while now but recently learned of the Hero's Wish program and thought, hey it never hurts to ask right! So I would LOVE for 5 Disneyland in Anaheim CA 3-Day Park Hopper Tickets for myself, my wife, Melayna (17), Jackson (11), and Lyvea (6). As I near retirement I would love to be able to surprise them with this special trip to say thank you for the years they have had to go without me being there. Thank you to the wonderful supporters of Vet Tix and to the awesome folks who created and continue to operate this wonderful non-profit organization for the opportunity.

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.

Disney World

Sep 23rd 2016

Hi, my name is CPT Todd Sexton and I am currently deployed to Afghanistan. I have been married to my beautiful wife, Amanda for 9 years and we have two kids together. My son Cole who is 7 and daughter Emma who turns 3 in two weeks. I have served in the Army for a total of 15 years now and this is my fourth combat deployment. Two to Iraq and two to Afghanistan. I have missed numerous anniversaries, birthdays, and holidays with my family. I was also deployed during the birth of my son. I would love nothing more than to be able to come home and take both of my children to Disney World to celebrate. I will get home just prior to my sons birthday and it would be great to see those kids faces when I could tell them "we're going to Disney World". My daughter is in that phase right now where she loves princesses and my son loves Star Wars and he really wants to see the Star Wars section at the park. It would be truly special to me to be able to take my wife there for all of the hard work that she has put in over the last three deployments. My son is an exceptional family member due to autism and she has a full time job trying to take care of him, get to all of his therapies, and wrangle my daughter all at the same time. She never complains and "always" puts myself and the kids first. For once I would love to surprise her and take her on vacation so she can relax a little and have a good time. I am requesting six tickets so that my mother and father-in-law can go with us in case my son has any issues while at the parks. Sometimes he has a hard time with crowds but if we have additional help then he and my daughter should be able to get the full Disney experience. Disney does such a great job with kids that have special needs and that is why I am choosing Disney. Thanks for your support and God Bless America!!

Homecoming DisneyWorld Dream

My name is Capt. Brandi Burrowes. I am currentlydeployed in Afghanistan as a Flight Nurse with one of the best DUSTOFF units in the Army #TeamArchangels. I am also a single mother of 3 beautiful children 17, 15, and 12. After being gone for almost a year all I dream of is spending quality time with my children. I can think of no better place to accomplish this then at Disney in Orlando. As I have missed most of my oldest sons junior year, I want him to have a special memory to take in to his senior year and off to college. My prayer is to take this trip in September which is my youngest sons birthday.

This was one of the most awesome experiences of my life. To be able to return home after a long ten months in Afghanistan and see the looks on their faces was amazing. We were able to share some much needed family time, as I am a single mom and they were in the care of my mother during my absence. I am at a loss for words to cover my gratitude to those who assisted in making this wish/dream come true. I truly do not know if we would have been able to have the same experience during this vacation if it were not for those donors who came to our aid/assistance. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

 

Cardinals v. Patriots Football game

Sep 11th 2016

Hello my name is Jaime De La Paz and I am a medically retired SSG from injuries sustained during my final deployment to Afghanistan. My time in the military has been amazing regardless of some barriers my family and I had to overcome. I have multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan and no matter how hard some of those deployments where I wouldn't change anything because they have molded me into the person I am today. I am married to the most wonderful women that has stuck by me throughout this entire roller coaster of my career. She has been my motivation that keeps me going day to day. She is now my care taker and I have never see her complain one bit regardless of my needs from my injuries She put her needs aside to help take care of me. We have 5 wonderful and beautiful kids Alexis(11), Mia (10), Joseph (9), Mya (8) and the baby Jade(2). My family is super close but once football season comes around it makes us even closer. Even though my household is dominated with pink and barbies, come Sunday during football season, you will find my entire family glued to the TV watching the New England Patriots. We have never been to an actual football game and I would love to be able to take my family to one, especially to watch our team the Patriots play. Thank You from me and my family!

First of all I want to say thank you to Vettix for all the help they have provided me during this process of granting my wish. Vettix you have made this one of the best experiences any one could have ever asked for, and I thank you not only for granting my wish in attending this game but thank you for everything you do in helping out the military and their families. Your organization helps us remember that we are not forgotten and that our sacrifices are seen by the very people we vow to protect. Ryan I also want to say thank you to you so much for your donation. You could have spent that money on anything and it means the world to me that you decided to help me on making my wish come true from my entire family a big thank you. To who I got to know as Mr. Alfred I don't think I could write enough words to express how thankful I am for your donation. The entire experience seemed so surreal that even now I can't believe that I was able to experience the game the way I did. My wife and I can honestly say we where holding back tears when we first got to meet you and see what a wonderful experience you had set up for us. First class experience all the way and even though you had on the wrong jersey I couldn't have asked for anything more. I will forever hold you in my thoughts and prayers and always think about the wonderful gift you gave me and my family. Everything was amazing from the seats to getting to know everyone with us I can not say thank you enough. Like I mentioned in my wish I was medically retired and I would do anything to go back and experience the brotherhood that I did in the Army all over again, but just like my soldiers I will now and forever see you as a brother. Mr. Alfred thank you so much and I can only hope that I can someday repay you for this amazing gift. Thank You to all of you and to anyone that has been part of this amazing dream!

 

Kiss Freedom To Rock Roadie For A Day

Sep 9th 2016

Whom It May Concern, Hello. I am a U.S. Marine who will be retiring after 20 years of active duty at the end of this year. I have served in Iraq and Afghanistan and have been a long time KISS fan. I was extremely happy when I discovered KISS are playing at the Richmond Coliseum on September 9th. I have only seen KISS in concert one other time. That was just before I joined the Marine Corps in 1996. I saw them in Lexington, Kentucky, near my hometown. I have decided to stay in Richmond, Virginia upon retiring from the Marine Corps and want to seize the opportunity to close out my military career by coming FULL CIRCLE and seeing KISS ALIVE one more time! I have spent 20 years of my life as a U.S Marine. I have traveled the world and lived in so many places: California, Japan, Thailand, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. So much blood, sweat, and tears have been shed over those years and to think KISS were there for me in the beginning and they are still stronger than ever today! That is really amazing to think about! I have been a fan since 1983, when I was 11 years old. I bought the best tickets available for the Richmond show, which are in the second row, center stage, but I recently learned about the "Roadie for a Day" promotion for the Freedom to Rock Tour and how KISS have asked service members to join them on stage in certain cities. I would be very grateful for the opportunity to be Roadie for a Day at the Richmond, Virginia show on September 9th. Would you please consider me for this opportunity? I am readily available to participate any way I can! Please feel free to email or call me anytime. It would be an honor! Sincerely, Gunnery Sergeant James Eric Puckett

Thank You Message From Hero:

I would like to sincerely thank Cindy, Michallie, and Hiring Our Heroes for making this dream come true! Thanks also to Jason and everyone at VetTix! I was able to participate as a "Roadie For A Day" for my favorite band, KISS on their recent "Freedom To Rock" tour. It was an amazing experience and one that I will never forget! It is wonderful to know that there are organizations like VetTix and Hiring Our Heroes that are dedicated to helping veterans! One thing I did almost immediately after the concert was to visit VetTix online and make a donation to another veteran whom I thought could use some support! It took me a few days to figure out how to post this thank you, but believe me when I say I am very appreciative to everyone involved in making this dream come true! Here is a picture of my fiance and I meeting KISS just before they went onstage! Semper Fi! James
