Post Deployment and Kids Birthday Disney World Tickets

Monday, July 1st 2024 - Macon, GA

My name is Mike, and I am currently deployed in the Middle East with the US Army. This is my second 10 month deployment to the Middle East. I deployed once in 2021 and currently from my deployment in 2023 until my return. During my time at home I suffered a severe leg fracture on a parachute jump that put me on the sidelines for over a year. I would love to be able to take my family to Disney World, and go to the parks for my return, and for my twins 4th birthday. Because of my two deployments, and recovery from injury I have missed almost half of my twins lives. Being able to surprise them with 6 multi-day tickets to the parks would not only be a great birthday gift, but a wonderful welcome home. My wife and four kids have given up so much over the last three years, that being able to take them to all of the parks would help to show them how appreciated and loved they all are.

Family trip to see Harry Potter on Broadway in NYC

Friday, July 5th 2024 - New York, NY

My name is Luis. This month I completed 10 years in the US Army Reserve and just returned from an overseas deployment (9 months) which came short notice as my orders were cut only 1 month prior to deployment. I missed all except one birthday and missed my anniversary as well. My wife is an amazing woman who helped our family successfully endure the impact of this last-minute deployment. She managed four boys and two active German Shepherds, so it was not an easy task for her! I am very grateful that we were able to make it through the challenges we experienced. That is why I would love to take my family to NYC to see "Harry Potter and The Cursed Child" on Broadway. My kids love music and Harry Potter and I know this will help inspire a greater appreciation for music and the arts. We would also take advantage of being in NYC to see the World Trade Center Memorial. Your kind consideration is greatly appreciated! We will be grateful for anything that may be provided. Thank you!

*Universal Orlando Family Vacation*

Thursday, July 11th 2024 - Orlando, FL

Hi! My name is Danny. I just got back home from a deployment to Kuwait, and like many others struggled with being away from my family and missing so much of what they were doing. I have a wife and three daughters who are 15, 12 and 9. Missing things like the holidays, them starting high school, middle school and a new elementary and all of their sporting events was not easy at all. My wife did an amazing job taking care of everything while I was gone, but now I am so glad to be home and a part of everything again. We don’t ever take actual family vacations because we really only travel for sports. So this summer while we are in Orlando for futsal, I would love to take my family to Universal. I would really love to get a universal military freedom pass for each of us so we can in and out of the two parks because we won’t be able to go and spend an entire day there. This would mean so much to me to be able to surprise my wife and girls with this one our trip, so that is why I am hoping to get 5 universal military freedom passes.

Hero’s wish for Yankees tickets

Saturday, August 10th 2024 - Bloomingburg, NY

Hello my name is Darlene Long. I am a Staff Sgt in the Air Force. I am currently deployed in Iraq in support of Operation Inherent Resolve. I have been here since October 2023 and will return home May 2024. I have three amazing children and I have missed every holiday with them since October. It’s also been very hard for them knowing that I am in a war zone and have had multiple attacks. Our favorite past time is to attend NY Yankees games. My wish is for 4 tickets on the first base line. That would be a dream come true for all of us. Thank you for your support.

Atlanta Falcons game with my family

Sunday, September 8th 2024 - Atlanta, GA

My name is Nick. I am currently on my 2nd deployment and have been away from my family for 8 months as of me writing this. I am looking to take my family to a Steelers game this fall. My family are die hard Steelers fans, however making it an NFL game has been out of our grasp. These past few years have been hard on my wife and boys as I have been away a lot. During this deployment we had a high-risk pregnancy and we were blessed with a healthy and beautiful 5lb baby girl. With all the chaos recently, I know my family would love to be able to go see the team they love at an actual game. I know it will be a memory the boys will never forget. We're hoping for 4 tickets to the Steelers/Falcons game playing in Atlanta. Thank you very much to all those who donate to this cause and make wishes like this possible for my family.

This would be a wish come true for us and give us some much needed family time!

Surprise my daughters with tickets to Disney World!

Monday, November 11th 2024 - Orlando, FL

My name is Clay. I am currently deployed to the Middle East and would love to take my family to Disney World. My daughters Eleanor (10) and Penelope (8) are in love with all things Disney and it would be epic to surprise them with a trip to Disney World in Florida when I get back from deployment. They have been so proud of their dad during this deployment and want to treat them for helping their mom around the house and keeping her spirits high. I love my family and hope that I can give them something special for keeping me motivated and taken care of the home front while I’m gone. Thank you for your consideration and no matter what, thank you for taking care of Soldiers all around the world! You are awesome!

Take my family to Disney World

Friday, December 6th 2024 - Orlando, FL

My name is Bradley. I’ve served in the Army for 17 years now. I’ve been stationed in Germany and deployed on combat rotations twice. Just got back from a 10 month deployment to Poland in Oct of 24. I’m married to an amazing wife named Courtney and we have four children together. My family and I have been dreaming of the day to go to Disney World. Unfortunately we haven’t had the time or money so it’s been delayed again and again.

Family Disney Trip After 1 Year Deployment

Monday, January 13th 2025 - Orlando, FL

I’m married to my high school sweetheart, Marie (14 years married) and together we have two children, Elodie (7 years old) and Gabriel (3 years old). I've been in the military for 14 years, a majority of the time being in MARSOC as a Marine Special Ops Operator. For my 5th and most recent deployment in April of 2023 I was Force Mobilized to Iraq with NATO. Due to sourcing issues for a replacement, I was extended three times to make a six months turn into a one year deployment overseas! Over the year, I’ve missed birthdays and holidays alike, especially when the kids were hoping for me to be “home by their birthdays!” As I look to come home and reconnect with my family after one year apart, I’m wishing to take my family to Disney World. Having time together would be a blessing and opportunity to help make up for all the time lost while I was in Iraq. My kids and wife have been so strong thinking I would be home soon and to be disappointed to find the deployment was extended 3 times for a total of a year. I would love to be able to surprise the kids with this. Thank you so much for your consideration and hopeful support. As we say in the Marine Raiders, “Never above you, never below you, always beside you.”

Post Deployment Trip to Disney World

Wednesday, January 15th 2025 - Orlando, FL

Hello, my name is Nick. I am a 17 year Army Soldier, husband, and father to two wonderful children. I am currently deployed to the Middle East. While this is my third deployment for the military, this is my first as a Dad. Back home, I live the somewhat cliche tale of a full-time Sheriff Deputy married to an elementary school teacher. My wife and I both have a passion for serving others, but this trip is far different with my wife taking on so much of the burden. By the time all is done and I am finally home, my family will have been apart for over 13 months out of a 16 month period. I would like nothing more than to take my 8 year old and 5 year old for a trip to Disney World to celebrate finally being a family again and to thank them for letting their Dad go help others while I could. Thank you for your consideration.

Wishing to take the family on a dream vacation to Disney World

Monday, September 15th 2025 - Orlando, FL

Hi! My name is Jeff and I am currently on 13 month mobilization orders deployed to the Middle East. Proudly serving in the US Navy Reserve, this is my fourth overseas deployment in 6 years. I’d really like to surprise my family with a long overdue vacation. My wife and I are parents to a disabled, special needs adult child that gets super excited about anything Disney. We have always wanted to be able to plan a trip to take him to Disney World in Orlando, Florida. My wife is the real hero here as she has been home holding things down and taking care of our boy while I've been away. This particular deployment was made more challenging because of course, everything waits for me to leave to go wrong so she has faced home repairs and dealt with having to get the AC fixed in the heat of the Texas summer. Her car has been in for repairs as well. The sacrifices she makes every day in support of our family are not easy but she goes above and beyond to get it all done! I am so proud of her and wish so much to make her dream a realization and take our family on this vacation to make up for all the time I have missed through these deployments! I expect to return home by early May 2024 and would really appreciate any help in making this wish for four, 3-day park-hopper-plus tickets (with available disability services) come true! If it does, we would plan our trip between April and September 2025. Thank you for taking the time to read my wish!

On Nov 15th Michael Posted:
To Vet Tix and all supporters, I can't thank you enough for the opportunity to take my family to Disney World. An overseas deployment is hard enough on us as service members, but we fully understand what we sign up for when we volunteer to serve our country. Our families, though, do not necessarily make this same sacrifice as willingly. They bear the extreme burden of supporting a family and a home by themselves, and taking care of all those tasks that we take for granted when us service members are home to help. This wish wasn't about making my dream come true. Rather, it was about making my wife and children's dream come true, and rewarding them for their sacrifices and support throughout the past year. A family vacation won't make up for the lost holidays and birthdays, but seeing the pure ecstasy on my son's face when he met Mickey Mouse, and my wife's joy when my son cried with laughter as Pluto bopped his nose, will forever grant me joyful memories. It's the memories like that, and this wonderful generous organization, that remind me why I continue to serve and whom I'm dedicated to protect. So I'd like to give a heartfelt thank you to Vet Tix and everyone that made this dream come true for my family.

To our Generous donors, Thank you so much for helping us in taking our family to Disney for a much needed vacation, and the ability to achieve a dream of ours in taking our children on a trip to Disney. Our family visited all of the parks, and also met some of our favorite Disney characters. We were able to attend a character breakfast where the kids were able to meet Eyeore, Piglett, Tigger, and Winnie the Pooh. They also met Minnie Mouse, Goofy, and Russel from the movie “Up”. Their favorite rides were the Kilimanjaro Safari ride at Animal Kingdom, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway at Hollywood Studios, and Under the Sea - Journey of the Little Mermaid at Magic Kingdom. We were also able to coordinate with my mother in law to watch the kids on two separate evenings, allowing for my wife and I to have a date night. We visited Magic Kingdom for dinner and Epcot, which is currently having their annual flower and garden festival. It was wonderful to be able to have some time as just husband and wife and focus on us outside of the normal craziness of life. Our family can not thank you enough for your generosity. Your gift allowed us to take a trip as a family where we could focus on each other, relax and have fun. All while creating memories we will remember forever. Thank you, SSG Casey Donovan

I want to thank everyone who donated to make it possible to take my son to WrestleMania after my most recent deployment. It was the best WrestleMania ever and I am so blessed to be able to share this experience with my son. For a moment it took me back to being a kid again when I used to watch wrestling with my father. My son kept thanking me all weekend for using my one time wish to take him. He wants to say thank you for creating memories that will last a lifetime.

We had a great time even after it got postponed to the next day due to weather. We saw a good game but the Sox came up a little short in the end. Again, thank you for making my wish and many others like myself come true!
