Family Trip to Disney World

Hello, My name is Shelbi and I am the mama to two beautiful kiddos and the wife to an amazing wife. I recently returned from a 7 month deployment that was very hard on my family. This was my first time away from my kids for this amount of time. Along with many firsts I missed my daughter's birthday, my wedding anniversary, and my son's first day of school. This was all very difficult for us all to navigate and process. I missed out on a lot. I would love to treat my family to a trip to Disney World. I believe this trip would give us some quality time together to make memories and make up for lost time. I am requesting park hopper passes for the 4 of us and any food vouchers that may be available. I understand if this isn't possible. I will be extremely grateful for whatever we receive. My family and I really appreciate your consideration. Thank you so much. God Bless.

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.

Disneyland park hopper passes for family

Hello, I would like to take my wife and two daughters to Disneyland. I just recently returned home from my 3rd deployment, and unfortunately I missed my both of my daughter’s births and every birthdays since due to deployments/training. I would like to take my 5 year old to Disneyland and visit the bippity boppity boutique while enjoying what Disneyland/California adventure has to offer. It would mean a great deal to my daughter as she is the class 5 year old that is obsessed with Disney. My wife and I are high school sweethearts and she has sacrificed so much for us to live this lifestyle. She has wanted to take our daughter for years but due to COVID/ cost issues it hasn’t been possible. We are hoping now it is

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.

Family vacation to Disney World

My name is Semeli Toilolo and I am 41 years old. I was born and raised in American Samoa in the village of Vailoa (vuh-ee-lo-ah). I met my high school sweetheart, Margaret Toilolo and we got married in 1998. We have 4 boys and one girl, one grandson and another grandchild on the way. I joined the U.S Army in 2000 as an Infantryman and I was medically retired in 2015. I am a Army Veteran who served for 15 years. Four of those years and three months was the time I deployed away from my family to Iraq. We are now settled in Texas, and my two older boys are now serving in the Army, one stationing in Ft. Lewis and the other in Fort Bragg. I am a stay at home dad and grandpa, trying to make up for the times I have lost with my family. In 2007, when we were stationed in Fort Lewis, Wa, I was deployed with to Iraq with 4-9 Infantry, 2nd Infantry Division to Baquoba, Dyala Province. In one of our dismounted patrols in a crowded market street, a female suicide bomber walked in our formation and blew herself up, and wounded my whole squad, including myself. We were air MEDEVAC out to the nearest CASH in another base in Iraq called LSA Anaconda. They were able to operate and take some of the shrapnel out but left some inside my arm. I was then doing physical therapy and recovery and 6 months later I was deployed with the 1st CAV Division 1-8 CAV, 2nd Brigade, to Iraq 2009-2009, and 2011-2011. In 2014, I was diagnosed with severe PTSD and the ARMY Medboarded me out, after 25 years of service. I had been through several inpatient treatments for PTSD like PRRP, and also had been involved in small groups and wounded warrior peer support group. My injuries are both physical and mental, and it is affecting my family. My kids don’t even come to me and they only call and text their mom. I feel as if I am the bad guy in our house and nobody seems to understand me. So we are taking it one day at a time, trying to keep everything together. So I enrolled online to take some courses and I have been reading my Bible, trying to stay close to God and I meditate through prayer. I feel that is helping me to change my way of thinking and take away anxiety and depression. My plan for the future is to stay healthy and be a counselor for those veterans who are going through the same problem as me. I also plan to graduate from GCU with a BA in Christian Studies, which I am currently taking. Right now, my mother-in-law, she is 76 years old is staying with us, we are taking care of her, and my daughter and her son, my two boys and my little dog. My oldest son is deployed to Iraq. My wife doesn’t work, she is my caregiver. I also plan to graduate with my BA in Christian Studies from GCU online and use that degree to help someone battling PTSD or similar, despite if they are veterans or civilians. We have always wanted to go to Disney World but financially we can’t. If this wish comes true this will be our first family outing vacation ever. I think it would help me to get out of the house and reconnect with my family in that way. It would be a dream come true especially for my kids, but a healing therapeutic retreat for me and my wife as well. Thank you and God bless.

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!

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).

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.

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

Disney World Dream

My name is Nick and like many people here, I would love to take my two kids on a Disney World Vacation. They are getting to the perfect age (5 and 8) to really appreciate this once in a lifetime opportunity and have begun asking if we can go. I deployed to Iraq back in 2004 and was wounded in action when the truck I was driving on a convoy, struck an anti-tank mine. I lost most of my hearing in one ear and as a result of the explosion, suffered back, knee, and foot problems which have resulted in limited mobility in my lower half. After my time in service I finished college with a teaching degree but ultimately found myself working in social work in the Veterans Treatment Court of Illinois. This job has me helping veterans of all eras who have been arrested and have a treatment need (usually drug and alcohol) and break the vicious cycle of veterans ending up in jail or prison, and instead get them sober. As satisfying as the job is, it really doesn't pay well enough to afford a Disney trip. I never thought this type of vacation would be possible so I am hoping Vet Tix might make this dream a reality! My son is obsessed with Star Wars and wants nothing more than to fly the Millennium Falcon and my daughter really wants to meet "the real" Princess Elsa from frozen. Thank you in advance for anything that helps!

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!!

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.

On Dec 16th Brian Posted:
Thank you to all of the wonderful donors that donated to my Hero's Wish. My family was able to enjoy a day at Discovery Cove and swim with the dolphin, name MaRaya. After swimming with MaRaya we spent the rest of the day snorkeling and floating on the lazy river. This was such a great experience for my family. Our pass into discovery Cove also included a pass into Seaworld. My family really enjoyed going to the dolphin show, orca show and the sea lion and otter show. Thanks again for the donations to grant my Hero's Wish and helping my family make memories that will last a lifetime.
