Green Bay Packers game on Christmas Day

My husband, Senior master Sgt Chris Raines, is currently on his 6th and hopefully final deployment. We’re both Active Duty Air Force. My husband loves Christmas and has been a lifelong Packers fan. There is nothing I’d love more than to share Christmas with him at a Packers game…mixing two of his favorite things! Thank you for thinking of my family and for your consideration!

Disney World Orlando Dream Vacation

My names is Kaitlin Barnett. I am currently serving my fourth deployment. I want to take a family vacation with my daughter, husband and mother when I return this winter. My mother has spent a large portion of the past year taking care of my daughter as both her parents were deployed. I want to use this vacation for some much needed bonding time and as a transitional period post deployment. I would like to take my family on a Disney World Park Hopper vacation when I return from my deployment

1st Disney World Trip!

Hi! My name is TSgt Amy Christensen and I'm active duty Air Force with 10 years in. I'm currently on my first deployment. My husband, Cameron, is at home with our two children (ages 2 and 4). He's working full time and taking care of the kids by himself. This is my first time being separated from my children and I'm happy to say they are doing well but it has been difficult for them to understand why I left and why I can't just come home already. I want to plan our first ever family trip to the most magical place on earth! I think it would be good for our family to be able to relax and enjoy each others company after this long separation. I will have missed our wedding anniversary, my daughter's 2nd birthday, my husband's birthday, my birthday and my son's 5th birthday. Our trip to Disney World will be one big celebration! We are requesting three 4 day hoppers (our daughter won't require a ticket due to her age). Thank you so much for the support and consideration!

1st Trip to Disney World

My names is Capt Amanda Burkhardt. I am active duty and have been in the military for 16 years. During these 16 years and current deployment my kids and husband have sacrificed so much to let me serve my country. I would like to surprise them with a family trip to Disney World when I return from the Middle East. I have two 14 year olds (Emma and Lucas), a 9 year old (Allie), an 8 year old (Grace) and little baby Oliver (2 years old). My daughter Grace was born with a rare birth disorder, Arthrogryposis, and as a family we find it hard to travel and go on trips that everyone can participate in. Disney World is the one place where all my kids can participate in the fun. All my kids have sacrificed so much and my husband holds our family together while I’m gone. I would love the opportunity to take my family on a trip to Disney Wold when I return home.

Disneyland Dream Vacation

My name is TSgt. Steven Wilson. I retired from the USAF in 2014 after serving for 17 years, I was deployed to Iraq, on my 4th deployment (2011) I was injured in an IED blast. I received a Purple Heart due to my TBI, I also suffer from hearing loss, back and knee pain, PTSD, migraines and memory issues. I had brain surgery in 2013 and had to cut my military career short due to ongoing symptoms from the blasts. My wife and children have supported me through all of my ups and downs since my injury, it would be nice to spend quality time with my family at the Happiest Place on Earth. I would love to take my large family to Disneyland, my children have not experienced the fun and magic of Disneyland, I would love to share that with them. I would like to request 12 three day park hopper passes so we could all go together. My children are 17, 16, 15 & 15 (twins), 14, 12, 8, 4 and nearly 3 & 3 (twins).

Disneyland family vacation

My name is SSG Donald Watson, I would love to surprise my family of 5 with a post deployment vacation to Disneyland. My family has supported me through every deployment, training and I want to thank them. I have been active duty for 11 years and I have deployed twice to Iraq, once to Afghanistan, once to Korea and I am currently deployed. Through these deployments and trainings I have missed many holidays and special occasions. My daughter is now 7 and I have only been present for her 2nd birthday. I would love to take this vacation in September for her birthday before my next possible deployment in late 2020.

Disney World with my family

My name is SFC Michael Fearing with 22 years of service and being a military dependent I have always dreamed of going somewhere great like Disney World. I know how hard it is to be a dependent myself and know first hand how hard it is to have your father away during a deployment and then try to reconnect. As my deployment is soon coming to an end in Saudi Arabia and now Kuwait I realize it is much harder to be deployed with a family vs my deployments as a single Soldier. I would love to take my family to Disney World and ask you to help us all reconnect as a family.

Disney World Park Hopper passes for family of 6

My name is SFC William Moore. I have been in the US Army Reserves for 10 years and currently serving my 2nd deployment in Iraq. My wife is home with our four awesome kids, Grace 14, Danielle 7, Liam 5 and David 3. This had been our toughest deployment- I have missed many holidays, family events and family emergencies. When I return home I would love to take my family for some much needed fun and magic at Disney World FL. We are humbled and thankful to be considered for this wish fulfillment. Thank you VETTIX for all you do!

Disney World, Orlando Florida

My name is SMSgt Jason Walker and I have served in the Air Force for 27 years and counting. I recently got back from a deployment in Afghanistan. I have been deployed all across the world from South Korea, Djibouti, Iraq, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Germany, and many more. My deployments have always put a great deal of stress on my wife, Gretchen, and two daughters, Simone and Saffron (18 & 12) and I haven’t been able to show them my appreciation for all they have done back here at home. I am hoping to take them on a much needed trip this summer to Disney World in Florida for some family time and a stress reliever. We’ve never taken a family vacation and this trip would mean the world to my family and I. Thank you for your consideration and God bless.

Universal studios CA for disabled veteran

My Name is Sgt. Kathleen Sarrica. I am a disabled veteran with 2 children and a husband. I deployed to Iraq in 2009-2010. I lost my first husband in Iraq and my nephew in Afghanistan. We live on a very fixed income and I’d like nothing more than to reward my family with a vacation to Universal studios. My family has suffered not only with my absence during deployment but with the aftermath of said deployment. I’m rated 100% and life has been so extremely hard for us in the past 9 years. I suffer PTSD, an anxiety disorder as well as being the victim of MST (military Sexual Trama). Seizures can come at anytime, often without warning. My family has suffered extensively with my health issues. It would be so wonderful to be able to give back and show my family how appreciative I am of them for sticking by my side. Universal Studios would be a great reward for my family for sticking with me through thick and thin. I would just like to give back to my family for always being there. They are my definition of real life heroes. I try everyday to be the best mom I can possibly be, but sometimes it gets the best of me. We’ve never been on vacation and I feel this would be a great way to show my kids that no matter what life throws at you family is always #1.

Legoland for my family

My name is Sgt Jesse Jackson. I met my wife in Fallon, Nevada. We both had a child from our previous marriage and we have one together. We've been married now for 8 years and our boys are growing like crazy. Through most of my surgeries my wife and kids have been there for me while I recovered and I want to show the my appreciation by taking them to Legoland since all 3 of our boys love building with legos and using their imagination. I would need 5 tickets for me, my wife, and our 3 boys.

DISNEYLAND AFTER THE PANDEMIC!

My name is LS1 Jordan Creath. I am an active duty sailor who has served in the Navy for 15 years. I was on deployment in Kuwait/Iraq and got back in June. We had just moved to California last July and my wife and I wanted to take our kids to Disneyland around Halloween time. A few months after I checked into my command I was being shipped out for deployment. We didn't get to really explore California or do anything because I was always gone for training to prepare for deployment. I was never sure when I was going to come home because I just keep getting extended (thank goodness they didn't keep me out there until September like they wanted to.) It's been an emotional long journey and I just want to show my wife and kids that I appreciate them for all the sacrifices they have given over the past year and a half. I am requesting 4 Disneyland 3-Day Park Hopper tickets so I can take myself, my wife and our two children.

Disney World for a father and his daughters.

My husband is active duty, a dedicated soldier defending this great country and an amazing dad and deploying soon and when he returns I would love for him to be able to take my girls to Disney World. I would not be able to go since I have severe health issues. I would love for my husband and two daughters to go and have the time of their lives! Maybe stay at the Disney resort since we have never been.

Walt Disney World

Currently deployed to the Middle East, and was involuntarily extended for up to an additional 6 months, totaling around 18 months away. I have three sons and a fiancee that I wish to take away on a magical Disney World Vacation. This has always been a dream of my family to do, and would be incredible if we could accomplish this, using the opportunity to re-connect after this deployment. We wouldn't require transportation, only park access and hotel (if any sort of meal vouchers are available, that would be amazing).

Disney World Family Vacation

Hello. My father, Capt. Carl E. Jackson, is MIA from Vietnam as of June 27, 1965. We never got a body back - only a few personal belongings. We were told several different stories about what might have happened to him and will never truth from fiction. Initially, we were told he was KIA. We later found out that there was an attempt to rescue him from a POW camp in October, 1966. Dad was a Captain at the time of his Vietnam incident. I am not sure how many deployments he was sent on as I was only 10 when the incident occurred. I do know that he was away from home a lot. My father was away much of my life and aside from the trips to visit grandparents, there was only one vacation that we went on. That is one of the dearest memories that I have of him. I would like to take my husband, children (daughter, son-in-law, and son), and my grandchildren (girl, boy, and one on the way) to Disney World so that we all can have our own memories. I thank you for your consideration.

Disney World Vacation

I’m SPC Cardenas and I recently got back from a 7 month deployment in Bulgaria. My wife was 1 month pregnant with our first baby when I left for deployment. So I missed most of the pregnancy but luckily was able to redeploy early for the birth of our baby boy. He is currently 6 weeks old. I would like to take my little family to Disney World to show my wife that she is greatly appreciated for being strong during her pregnancy without me physically being there.

Disney World with family

Hi! My name is Technical Sergeant Teddrick Thibodeaux, Aircrew Flight Equipment Specialist. I entered the United States Air Force in 2011 and currently stationed overseas. I am currently on my 2nd deployment to a specialized base in an Afghanistan province. I have been deployed for 3 months now, working 14-hour days, no downtime and constantly on the move to sustain aircrew equipment by ensuring safety measures are in place for the individuals that fly those aircrafts, it’s a bittersweet feeling to know that I directly affect the mission and save lives daily. This deployment in particular has put a great deal of stress on my family. I am the father of two beautiful kids (Lilah (8) and Teddrick Jr (4)) and husband to my amazing wife Daisha. I want to let my wife and kids know how much I appreciate them for their sacrifices, tremendous support and love I have received from them. Every day that I’m not with them, it brings a sense of sadness that I’m missing their smiles, excitement from coming home from school, chances to watch little league and much more. I want to extend my gratitude to my family with this trip, not just for missing family time due to these deployments but for the last 12 years. I am requesting four, 4-day park hopper tickets to Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida this October. This will be our 1st family vacation in 4 years. What we have been through as a family, it is very much needed! I want to personally thank Vettix and all the contributors in advance for making my kids dream come true! God Bless America!

Family Trip to Disney World

Hello, my name is SFC Jeremy Clinton and I have been serving in the Army Reserves for the last 19 years and am currently on my 4th deployment to the Middle East. I expect to be home in spring 2022. Previously I served two tours in Iraq (2007-2008 and 2009-2010) and one tour in Afghanistan (most of 2015). My wife and I met in 2006, wed in 2013 and are blessed to share two beautiful daughters, ages 7 and 4. On the civilian side I am a local police officer for the past 9 years (7 if you don’t count the time I’ve spent deployed). I’m not normally one to ask for help, but after speaking with my wife, I decided to do so. Growing up, my family lived paycheck-to-paycheck and never took vacations because quite frankly, my parents didn’t have the money for such. Sometimes the electric got turned off or the water turned off for a week or two at a time. Just as any father does, I hope to be able to do more for my children and my wife than my parents were able to do for me and my 5 siblings. I have worked tirelessly for most of my life. I gained my first job two weeks prior to turning 14 at a fast food restaurant and have been employed ever since, only ever having worked a total of 3 jobs. This is in addition to my military service, which I enlisted at 17 years old while I was a junior in high school with my parents’ written consent. The military hasn’t always been easy and has slowed things for me on the civilian side at times due to multiple deployments. After graduating high school, I enrolled in community college in 2005 and began studying criminal justice. I was a fulltime student while working fulltime. Due to my back-to-back deployments to Iraq, it took me 6 years to earn a 2-year degree (Associates). I was able to get hired as a police officer 14 months later. From my short story, you can see my wife has been by my side from almost the beginning. She is truly an amazing woman that I believe only other veterans’ spouses can fully understand extent of the hardships and sacrifices she too has made in support of me, our family, community and country. I am extremely fortunate to have such a dedicated wife, terrific mother and strong role model for my children. With all of that said, my wife and I are in the process of planning a trip to Disney World in Orlando, FL. My wife went there as a child and it’ll be a first for my daughters and I. Due to their ages, we had hoped to take them last year (2020) but due to the COVID pandemic, that wasn’t possible and then this year (2021), I deployed again. So we are planning for an October/November 2022 timeframe, when Halloween or Christmas décor and activities are happening. My wife and I both feel we have to get our daughters to Disney World in 2022 due to their ages so they can experience “the magic” we’ve heard others talk about before it’s too late and that magic diminishes. We live in the northeast and so we are planning to fly to Orlando, or drive, depending on how the finances workout. All together, we are hoping our vacation can last 7 days with the budget we have. To alleviate some stress and make room in our budget, I am humbly requesting assistance with acquiring tickets to the Disney World parks. My wife and I would like to take our daughters to Magic Kingdom. Again, I don’t normally ask others for help but I’m swallowing my pride at this time in hopes that I can give my family the much needed vacation they both need and deserve without sacrificing the experiences due to financial constraints. This is really about them, not me. Any assistance is better than nothing so thank you for your time.

Thank you to everyone who donated to our amazing experience at Universal Orlando. The generosity you showed us was on full display as we walked into the magical Harry Potter attraction areas and I saw the smiles light up on the faces of my girls. This trip was a culmination of my military service and a lifetime of their sacrifices and hardships and we are eternally grateful for this experience. Thank you. Mark, Cindy, Alyssa, Jamie, and Katie.

Thank you to those generous folks who provided donations so that my family could spend time with each other at Disneyland. This has been a long time coming… returning from Afghanistan to be met by COVID and wondering if we would get a great / relatively similar experience upon arriving to Disney 19 months later… it’s been interesting. After Day 2, I can tell you that we are having a blast and are super fortunate / thankful for you all! We certainly remain… Semper Fidelis!

On behalf of my family I would to thank Martin, Aaron, Malcolm, Jesus, Miguel, Corey, Laney, Allen, and the Veteran Tickets Foundation for your donations and making My Hero's Wish a reality. With the pandemic, and my 12 month deployment in 2020, looking forward to Universal in 2021 was the light at the end of the tunnel that my family used to keep their spirits up. My family and I had a great time during our Family Vacation to Universal Studios. We were able to go to Universal every day during our 5 day trip allowing us to enjoy everything Universal had to offer. It was a great experience for my family, and it gave us memories that will last a lifetime. Once again I want to thank everyone involved in making My Hero's Wish happen, without your support this amazing experience would have never happen.

I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. My family and I had so many laughs and screams. I never thought I would have so much fun. It means the world to me especially because we came on the anniversary date of my injury in Afghanistan, great way to replace that bad memory with a good one. To everyone who donated thank you, my service to this great country would be meaningless if it wasn’t for kind wonderful fellow Americans like yourself! I can not write enough words to express my gratitude. Thank you once again for making a dream come true for me and my family.

Thank you so very much to each of you that helped make this wish and wishes for others come true! Our family had an absolutely amazing time with memories to last a lifetime. Our youngest loved “riding along” with E.T., our middle son couldn’t hold his excitement in about meeting Blue the velociraptor, and our oldest enjoyed training with the MIB Agents. We can’t wait to do it again someday! Thank you again!!
