Saints Playoff Tickets

My name is CPT Matthew Rongey. I am coming up on the end of a 9+ month deployment, flying and overseeing operations in combat under Task Force ODIN in Afghanistan. During this time, my fiancee has been taking care of things back home, working full time, and planning our wedding. On top of all of that, she has been so strong and supportive of me while I'm away.
My wish is to attend the NFC Conference Championship game, if the Saints play at home on 20 January. My fiancee and I have never been to a NFL playoff game, and we are both big football fans.
Fulfillment of this wish would help me show her my gratitude.

Disneyland Princess Wish

Hi everyone, I’m currently on my first deployment in Djibouti, Africa getting ready to head home after a long 13 months. When I left home my niece she was three and now she just celebrated her fifth birthday and started kindergarten. We love Disneyland and it would be awesome to be able to make up for two missed birthdays with her favorite Disney princess. I never realized how much you could miss your family!!

A Special Trip to Walt Disney World

My name is MSgt Christopher Hess. I am currently deployed overseas until next year in Niger supporting the base's MWR program. When I get home I would like to surprise my family with the opportunity to spend 4-5 days at Walt Disney World. Over the past three years me and my family have been working through the after effects of a car accident my wife suffered. She was struck from behind and suffered a concussion, which resulted in her being off work for awhile. We have been grateful for opportunities provided by Vet Tix to go to events but I would like to use my one Hero's Wish for my wife and two daughters. I would be grateful for the opportunity to give them 4-5 days that they will never forget.

Post-deployment family trip to Disney World

My name is Maj Andrew Kearl and I just returned from my ninth deployment. Between deployments and numerous TDYs I'm often away from my wife and young two children. Considering how much my family love everything Disney, I can't think of a better way to reunite with them and make up for the lost time than by enjoying a family trip to Disney World. Additionally our son has Autism so normal family trips can be difficult but given his interest for Disney (he's often on his tablet watching other people's posted videos of Disney World rides), I know this would be a trip he would love. Thank you for making this wish a reality and God Bless.

Post Deployment Disney World Trip!

Hi, My name is Andrew Baker and I am currently serving in the Air Force. I left my family to go to Afghanistan for 6 months and would really love to reward them by taking them on a Disney World vacation after having to adjust and live life while I was gone. My wife fostered two other children along with having our three while I was gone and I would love to be able to take her on the vacation of her dreams. After being gone for such time I feel this would be the perfect getaway to bond again with my family and have some much needed rest. Thank you for your consideration in helping me give my family their dream.

Post deployment George Strait at the Houston Rodeo

My name is SGT Derrick Watson. For my first deployment, I had to leave my wife and one month old son behind. Not only is it hard on me, but it is hard on my wife, especially being a first time mother to our newborn son. Although my son will not remember everything that is going on right now, I want to make it up to both of them for having to go through the struggle alone. My wife deserves a break and some relaxation after this deployment is through. I am asking for our potentially last ever chance to see George Strait live in concert at the Houston Rodeo. He is bound to retire any day now. I have personally never seen him in concert, but my wife has, and absolutely loves him! We also both love rodeos, and anything outdoors! It would truly be an honor to my family and I to get a chance to see him, and to experience the Houston Rodeo together as a family. Thank you everyone and anyone that may support my wish. Thank you VET TIX for this opportunity, and the support you give us soldiers. It is truly appreciated. This will hopefully give my little family the relaxation and break from everyday life they deserve!

A Trip to Disney World - 5-Day Park Hopper Passes

My name is Capt Harold “Joe” Gotwald. I am active duty Air Force and am currently deployed until January. My wife has been with me my whole Air Force journey these past 9 years. This is my first deployment and my wife is at home holding down the fort with our 3 very active kids Evie (5), Lily (3), and Jack (2). It will be our 10 year anniversary next fall and she tells me our daughters are obsessed with playing Disney Princess and my son is fanatical with all things Mickey Mouse. This deployment has been difficult for my family. It would be amazing to treat her and my three kids to a trip to Disney World this coming March to make up for all of the birthdays, holidays, appointments, play times, and tea parties I’ve missed. I am asking for 4 tickets for 5 days of Disney World magic, it would mean the world to my family. Thank you

Post Deployment Family Trip to Disney World

My name is SFC Jorge Vasquez Jr. I am an Infantryman in the US Army and have been serving for 13 years. I am currently on the downhill slope of my 3rd deployment. Over the past 13 years, between deployments and pre-deployment field time, I have been away from my family for more than four years, but this deployment has been the toughest. My children are at the age where they know Daddy is working away from home, but not exactly sure why. Every time I talk to my 4yr old he asks me “Dad, how many more hours until you come home”. They miss me terribly and I miss them the same. Although being a Soldier and serving OUR Country is my greatest honor, the hardest part is leaving my family. My wife, Tiffany, is my rock who provides the support I need to do what I do for our family. She is an unbelievable woman who maintains our household and takes care of our five children, Abigail-10, Gabriel-9, Ethan-6, Luke-4, and Andrew-2. She does it all with minimal support and while enrolled in college. My wife and I do our best to provide our children with unforgettable memories with road trips to see our families in Arizona and Texas respectively. I would like to make a Hero’s Wish to request (6) Disney World 4-day park hopper tickets for my family so we could make the biggest and best memory so far. Thank you for your consideration, God Bless!

Disney World With Daddy

Hello, my name is Sergeant First Class Bruce Peltier. I have been in the Army for 15 years. My wife and I have been married for 13 years when our anniversary passes in July of 2018. I have three kids. Brayden is 10, Katelynn is 8, and Lyla is 2. Getting the support of your awesome program would be amazing for my family. I want to do this for them and be able to recognize them as well. Military spouses and families have to sacrifice a lot during deployments as well and we could not do it without them back home supporting us and holding down the Home front. My wife has been there for all five of my deployments and I could not have asked for a better team mate throughout this journey. This is the first deployment my kids can really remember leavening. It has proven to be one of the hardest for all of us. Being granted this wish would be an amazing way to show my family that I appreciate all the support they have given me. My wish is to take my family to Disney World. This would be an epic way for us to spend quality time with one another after I return from this deployment. Whether I am accepted or not, I truly appreciate what your organization does for our service members and families. Thanks to you and everyone who supports VETTIX. We appreciate everything you have done and will do in the future

Disney World

Hello, I am TSgt Edric Johnson. I am currently in month 4 of a 6 month deployment at an undisclosed location. This is my second deployment in 3 years. My lovely wife (Debra) and daughter (Sydney) have been patiently awaiting my return. This hasn't been the easiest of deployments cause we miss each other terribly. I'm sure it's not easy on all of my fellow brothers and sister in arms who are away from their loved ones. Sydney and Debra have been my pillar of strength to help me through this deployment. To show my deepest gratitude, I am making a Hero's Wish. I would love to receive 3 Disney World 4 day park hopper tickets and give them the experience of a lifetime. Thank you for your support.

Disney World Vacation

My name is SSG Ryan Bock, I recently returned from South Korea being away from my children and not seeing them for 1 year. I am recently divorced and happily remarried and now am the father to 4 wonderful children ranging in ages from 7-11 (2 Boys - 2 Girls). My family, with our conflicting schedules due to custody agreements have never been able to take all 4 of the children anywhere together nor spend holidays together. I would like the chance to take all 4 children and my wonderful wife who is currently going to school to become a doctor to Disney World. With my wife's school schedule she is unable to work currently and also a 100% Disabled Veteran after her 7 years of service. Granting this wish would be an amazing sight to see all 4 children together having the time of their life in the happiest place on earth. Thank you for your help sincerely. I will need 6 tickets total. One for each family member.

Aerosmith Deuces are Wild Las Vegas Reseidency

My name is Lt Bernard Mutz. I have been serving proudly in the USAF for the past twelve years. My wife has been a huge Aerosmith fan since childhood. She has twice had tickets to this concert and both times had the tours cancelled due weather. I would love to be able to surprise her with tickets to Aerosmith at MGM in Las Vegas in June 2019. She has been the rock and constant for our family and has filled the role of mother and father flawlessly to my two children, 5 and 3. I thank you for this opportunity.

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.

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.

There are truly no words to express the gratitude that my family and I feel for each and every one of you that made our dream vacation come true. The last year away was extremely difficult on my daughters and wife. This trip to Disney World was a very magical way to reconnect. We truly reconnected in a very magical way. I feel closer than ever with my family and I truly feel it was your donations and prayers that made it all come true. We spent every moment possible embracing our vacation at all of the Disney parks. My girls have never been happier. Thank you all from the Rhea family and may God truly bless all of you.
