Hello All! My name is SSG. Matthew Kockx. First off I'd like to say thank you to everyone who makes this possible. My wish is to take my 3 baby boys ages 7,6, and 4 to Disney World either before or right after my upcoming deployment to Afghanistan. I am a single father and this is something that would never be financially possible for me to do.Please help me and grant me this wish, it would make for some much needed father-son bonding time. Thank you soooo much and God Bless SSG Matthew K.

49ers v. Seahawks Game

Dec 8th 2013

I am GySgt Vela, I am on the last half of an 8 month deployment. I deployed to Afghanistan on March 22, 2013. I then volunteered to extend and remain in the Middle East. I currently serve as the SNCOIC of MCE-K. During my deployment, I have missed many special events such as Birthday's, Mother and Father's Day, Wedding Anniversary, Holiday's etc. My family is huge San Francisco 49er fans. I would love to be able to take them to go see the 49ers vs Seahawks on Dec 8. This is also the same weekend as my birthday. I can't think of a better way to reunite with my family than to take them to see the team they love, with the man they love.

Andrea Bocelli (Classical/opera)

Dec 7th 2013

My name is Sgt. Joseph Albrecht. I have a daughter that will turn 6 in October 2013, she has grown into Classical and Opera music since she was a baby, just like I have. My goal is to take my daughter with me to hopefully watch Andrea Bocelli live in concert one of these days. I am separated from my daughter right now because I am stationed in 29 Palms, CA and my daughter is in Houston, TX. I think having a father and daughter time watching this concert will be a moment that will be remembered for a long time.

Alabama Football Tickets (any game)

Nov 30th 2013

Hi my name is Christopher Lane. I am a Specialist in the US Army. I am currently deployed but will be home soon and just in time for football season. I am a HUGE Alabama fan. ROLL TIDE!!! I am from South Alabama and I have never been to a Alabama football game. My wish is to go to an Alabama vs Auburn game more then anything but I would settle for ANY Alabama game. I am stationed at Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah, Georgia and from Magnolia Springs, Alabama so a home game or one in Ga. or close by those areas would be best so I can drive. I would love to take my whole family, I miss them a ton. It will be 9 months since I have seen them. I have a beautiful wife named Carrie and two teenagers, a 19 year old son and a 14 year old daughter. None of them have ever been to a game either and they all love Alabama just as much as I do. I am hoping this can be something we can do as a family after I return home. I know 4 tickets is a lot to ask for but I was hoping maybe since it's college football someone from the school would donate them. If I can't get 4 I would at least like to take my wife with me. I don't think it would be as much fun alone. Don't get me wrong I would still love 1, I just think it's better when you have your family with you especially when you haven't seen them in almost a year. Anyway this would be so awesome and something I would never be able to afford on my own. I just can't imagine a much better ticket to request than to watch my all time favorite and best team in the world play.

Thank-you for making it possible for my family and I to attend the Iron Bowl. Even though my team didn't win, it was an amazing game and a great way to spend time with my family after just returning home from a very difficult deployment. It really was amazing! I honestly can't thank you all enough for making this possible. This is something we would of never been able to do on our own and to just be able to get away and have a fun, stress free time and not think about what's going on else where and watch my family as their eyes would light up was truly a blessing. Thank-you so much, oh and ROLL TIDE!

 

Disneyland Dream

Nov 16th 2013

My wife and I are both active duty and we've missed many birthdays, holidays and special moments. This deployment has been really hard on my children. I've missed my oldest daughter's 10th birthday, my youngest daughter's birthday and her first day of kindergarten and last, my little boy started walking. I would like to take my mother-in-law as well as she has been a rock and helped so much when both of us are TDY or deployed and has been priceless. My wife and I've missed so much over the years and I really want to take my family to Disneyland. I just want to give my children a vacation and see the biggest smiles on their faces. I think this would be a dream come true for all of us. Thank you for all the wishes you have answered and the support you provide us. This trip is planned for when I come home from deployment. I would like 3 Adult and 3 child 4-day Park Hopper Disneyland tickets for: My spouse, myself, mother-in-law, daughter (10 years old) daughter (6 years old) son (16 months). Dates: 14 -18 Oct 13.

To our donor...thank you doesn't begin to convey our gratitude to you. Our family trip to Disney was priceless. To see the smiles and hear the screams of joy from my kids was something I'll never forget. My 2yr old was horse the second day after screaming "Mickey!!" And all the other characters names over and over. He nearly ripped himself out of his stroller to get to them. It truly was an unforgettable and magical experience that never would have happened without out your support. Thank you, thank you...thank you.

I can't thank you enough for the perfect outing. Pics of my sons and I with one of the worlds finest role models, the Pat Tillman Memorial Statue and one of me displaying the great seats.
