Disney World in FL

Jun 5th 2015

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.

Thank You Message From Hero:

We were floored to have received three four day park hoppers for Disney Parks in Orlando, FL. The gesture was much more than expected from our original request of one day at Disney. Michelle and Vet Tix made it possible to finally on our promise to take Connor to Disney Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom. He said it best when he said "Its the greatest day of my life". I really appreciate everything that Vet Tix does for our troops and for donors like Michelle for paying forward such a fulfilling experience. Thank you so much for making my Families Summer!

 

Chicago Bulls Playoffs 2015

May 8th 2015

My name is Daniel Acosta. My Wish is to attend a Chicago Bulls playoffs game with my family. My children are huge Chicago Bulls fans and all play in an extracurricular basketball program. They had a chance to meet some of the players at a fan event this past winter and now are completely hooked on the team. It's been a plan to attend a game together but is usually too expensive. I feel that attending a Bulls game would been an amazing experience for my children and a great opportunity to have a family bonding moment.

A special thank you to the Veteran Tickets Foundation and the generous donor of Chicago Bulls Playoff tickets! My children and I had a wonderful time and were able to witness one of the most exciting games of the 2015 playoffs. With all of us being avid Chicago Bulls fans, watching Derek Rose score the buzzer beating game winning shot is a memory that will last a lifetime. As a father, it was very special to watch my children full of excitement, cheering, laughing and happy! Thank you for all you do to support our veterans and their families.

Take my family to Disney World before my surgery

Apr 12th 2015

Hi there, I'm SPC Jason Walker. I'm a former Marine and current Soldier in the Army. On my third deployment I stepped on a landmine that resulted in the instant amputation of my left leg and my right leg was blown apart. I fought to keep the leg and after 6 months and tons of surgeries I learned to walk again. I've been doing better but my limb salvage has been having increasing problems and on April 22nd I'll be having surgery on it again. This time it may result in the amputation of my right leg above the knee. Before I'm back down for a while I was hoping that I could take my wife and kids to Disney World in Orlando, Fl. I'm requesting 5 four day hopper tickets. My family has been my life line, and I'd love to allow them a chance to have fun and get away for a few days. They have been the reason I take each step further on my recovery. Please help me give my family a memorable vacation, thank you.

Thanks to Vettix and an awesome donor I was able to see Neil Degrasse Tyson in person, and was surprised with tickets to the meet and greet after the show as well. It was an absolute nerd-gasm and my girlfriend and I loved every minute of it. I was even able to have him sign his book for me. The host of the show Cosmos is a lot taller than he looks on the show, and even though its about science and space it was superbly funny as well. Thanks so much for making this wish come true, it was a spectacular evening.

NFL DALLAS COWBOYS HOME GAME

Dec 21st 2014

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 8.5 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.

Az Cardinals Tickets

Dec 21st 2014

My name is Master Sergeant Ryan Reed. I married my high school sweetheart Meredith at 18 and joined the United States Air Force in 1998. We have two sons, Greyson and Ashston who are 10 and 12. I've been deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and the Defense of the Arabian Gulf for the last 7 months and will re-deploy next week back to Hill AFB in Utah. After our re-integration period, we are planning to drive home and spend Christmas in Phoenix for the first time in several years. The event I was hoping to attend is the Cardinals vs Seahawks game at University of Phoenix Stadium on the 21st of December. I've been going to Cardinals games since I was 8 years old when they first moved to Phoenix in 1988, but have only been fortunate enough to attend a handful of games since joining the Air Force in 1998. In England, I woke my two young boys at 3am and literally cried while watching the Cardinals beat the Eagles to finally go to the Superbowl. Both of my sons, now 10 and 12, continue to wear their jerseys to school in spite of a fair bit of teasing from the local kids...and in my 16-year career, I have yet to meet another Cards fan who I could watch a game with, or really understood what it means to have been a fan all these years (although that did work out in my favor in 2001, when the Cardinals Cheerleaders came to visit us in Kuwait) I would love nothing more than to have an opportunity to take my incredible family to a game, and experience that amazing feeling of camaraderie that comes from being surrounded by thousands of cheering Cardinals' fans! Thank you

A Disneyland Christmas Miracle

Dec 20th 2014

My name Is David C Beck I'm medical disabled veteran a wounded warrior. I'm a loving husband and a father of three children. I'm struggling with Combat PTSD. Everyday is a battle with my emotions. I stress more than I should be and feel there's no escape sometimes. I always think about the event that had to me in Afghanistan when I got blown up with an IED. I am going through some financial hardships from transitioning to the civilian world. I barely have enough to pay for my bills but I am making it. The event I'm requesting for my wish is for my family to have a Disney Christmas vacation. I always saw package deals at a Disney resort with tickets. I never stayed at a resort before I never saw a Disney Christmas Parade and I would love my family to have a special Christmas. It would bring joy to my family because I know Christmas is going to be real short this year and my daughter been doing real well in school and I would like to reward her with this trip. Also my son birthday is on DEC 23 so it's a perfect b-day gift for him. Thank you for your time reading this. I know this is a long shot but asking doesn't hurt.

Disney World trip Dec 2014

Dec 4th 2014

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.
