Disneyland for the Family

Monday, June 13th 2022 - Anaheim, CA

Hello, my name is Jason Moore. My wife and I have been active duty for almost 6 years, I’m currently on a short notice deployment. We have 4 kids (4,6,8,10) and have taken a few deployments between the two of us in the last 4 years. These last two Covid years have made it hard on the kids as well. I’d like to take them all to Disneyland when I get back as a vacation. I appreciate the consideration and everything VETTIX does for this community. Thank you

A Disney World Honeymoon

Friday, July 1st 2022 - Orlando, FL

My wife and I had originally planned for a big wedding, but when COVID hit in 2020 life threw a curveball at us. We tied the knot at an intimate ceremony at the end of May 2021, and by June of 2021 I was deployed to Japan. We did not have time to have a honeymoon and now we are in the middle of a PCS to Florida. My wish is to surprise my wife with a honeymoon to Disney World in Orlando, Florida. I'd love to pamper her and stay at the Disney World Resort and spend at least a weekend (3 days) at the parks, but I know she and I would appreciate any help we can get. Thank you to all the generous donors who have given endless support to all of our brothers and sisters in the armed forces.

Walt Disney World

Tuesday, July 5th 2022 - Orlando, FL

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 Dream Vacation

Wednesday, July 6th 2022 - Orlando, FL

I’m a 19 year Army Veteran on my second deployment to the Middle East. During my first deployment, I had many close calls with mortar attacks and IEDs which left me with social anxiety amongst other disabilities. I know because of my mental health issues, I’ve limited my Family from many enjoyable experiences. I’m hoping to thank my Family of 5 with a sweet vacation when I return this summer. One place we’ve always dreamed of going was a 3 day hopper at Disney World. It can’t make up for the many occasions I missed but the thought of being able to bond at the happiest place on earth would be a remarkable experience and hopefully open a new chapter as I near the end of my Military Career.

Universal Orlando 3 Park - park to park passes

Friday, July 15th 2022 - Orlando, FL

My name is SGT Dozier, Cristian. I am currently on back to back deployments. It has been extremely hard for my family. Missing important dates and holidays. I want to give my family a vacation they deserve. After supporting me through these two deployments and the effects it has taken on my life, from severe PTSD to several mental health problems, they have been there for me and never waivered. They're very deserving of this trip and I would love to provide that experience for them.

Universal studios CA for disabled veteran

Monday, July 18th 2022 - Universal City, CA

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.

Disney World for a father and his daughters.

Monday, July 18th 2022 - Orlando, FL

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.

Luke Combs Buckeye Country Superfest

Saturday, July 23rd 2022 - Columbus, OH

My name is Joe Miller I joined the military in 2006 served six years in the Army as an infantryman. I joined the military because I was young and had a baby on the way and I had no idea how I was going to provide. I wasn’t all too patriotic then, but uncle Sam and I are best friends now. We play golf on the weekends haha! I was wounded in combat and I’m a Purple Heart recipient I lost the hearing in my left ear and a lot of hearing in my right ear I took shrapnel on my legs. I’m grateful to still have my limbs and eyesight. Last Year I made a promise to my wife that I would get her and the kids tickets to see her favorite artist in the world Luke Combs in Columbus on July 23, 2022. I promised I would get her close to the stage and recently I looked at the prices and I had knots in my stomach. We’ve never been to a concert before and I didn’t know how expensive it was. My wife has been my rock. She took care of me at my worst times and she took care of me at my best times. She is a mother to my kids and I couldn’t have asked for a better person in my life. She works so hard at everything she does and never does anything for herself. Knowing I can’t afford these tickets hurts my heart and I know that she’ll completely understand but I would still love to surprise her. This would be the best dream come true for me, and her. The kids will love it too. I have never asked anyone for anything but if there’s a chance I can help her wish come true (which is my wish) I'm going to try whatever I can. I’m a very humble person and very grateful. I’m grateful for what I have and I never complain about the things I don’t have. Thank you for reading this.

Family vacation to Disney World

Tuesday, August 30th 2022 - Orlando, FL

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.

Disneyland with family

Tuesday, September 27th 2022 - Anaheim, CA

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 Disneyland, in California. 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!

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.

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.

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

Wednesday, October 26th 2022 - Orlando, FL

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.

Walt Disney World Family Vacation

Thursday, November 10th 2022 - Orlando, FL

Hi! My name is TSgt Jessica Cherry. I have served 9 years in the Air Force. Six of those years spent on active duty and I am currently on year 3 in the ANG. I recently returned home from an eight month deployment overseas. I am fortunate enough to be a mom to two beautiful children (ages 4 and 6) and to my married to an amazing man, who stepped up while I was away. Of course, missing birthdays, first days of school, holidays, etc. were the most difficult to navigate while being away. At their young ages my kiddos didn't understand why I couldn't just come home. However, we made it and we're all happy that I am back home! I would love to surprise my family with four 4-day hopper passes to Disney World. It would be a dream come true to both of my kids. Honestly, there isn't a week that goes by that I'm not asked if we can go to Disney World "next weekend". They would be absolutely ecstatic to go! Therefore, I am requesting four 4-day hopper passes. However, I would be thankful for any level of support in making this dream come true for them! Thank you for your consideration and your support of my fellow service members whose dreams have been granted!

Disney World Tickets for Post Deployment Family Vacation

Sunday, November 13th 2022 - Orlando, FL

Hi Everyone I am 1SG Donald Spring. I have been in the Virginia Army National Guard for 19 years. Over those years, I have served in 5 active duty overseas deployments to include Afghanistan, Iraq (twice), Jordan and now currently serving in the Horn of Africa for a year. My wife is currently raising our two children, Michael (7) and Aurora (19 Months), and our 3 dogs at our home in Virginia. This deployment has been especially hard on my son as I have missed his birthday, holidays, and his baseball seasons. He loves the Magic of Disney and of course our daughter will as well because she is a Princess after all!I am hoping to take my family to Disney World in November to celebrate my homecoming, my sons 8th birthday and a belated 2nd birthday for my daughter! I would like to request 3 - 5 Day Salute Park Hopper Plus with Genie Tickets, Aurora is still too young to require a ticket.

Monday, November 14th 2022 - Orlando, FL

My husbands name is 2nd LT Randall Knauss. He would love to take his family to Disney World. After going to school for 2 years to green to gold my husband went to a 10 month school. He was home 6 weeks before he deployed to Korea. Once returning from Korea, he was home 6 months before he deployed to Europe after the war in Ukraine started. We would love to spend time together as a family relaxing after so much time apart.

Disney World Family Vacation

Thursday, December 1st 2022 - Orlando, FL

My name is Sgt John Real. I am active duty Air Force going on 10 years of service. I am hoping to take my wife and my son to Disney World when I return from my short tour. My son, Luka, just turned 2 in December 2021. When he was 10 months old, I deployed to Iraq. I came home for a short time, only to leave when he was 21 months for my short tour. I have never got to spend a Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or birthday with him. I would love to take him to Disney for his next birthday shortly after I return. My wife has done such a great job taking care of him and our home while I have been gone. Taking my family to Disney would be the perfect opportunity for our family to spend much needed time together. This would be both mine and my son’s first trip to Disney World and this would be the perfect chance for us to bond since I have been away from him for half of his life. We thank everyone who can help make this dream come true for us.

Disney World Dream

Wednesday, March 1st 2023 - Orlando, FL

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!

Disney World Vacation

Saturday, April 1st 2023 - Orlando, FL

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.

Friday, July 21st 2023 - Orlando, FL

My name is David Tapia, a severely wounded veteran who served in the United States Army. I was awarded a purple heart during my tour in Iraq and later honorably discharged after 4 years. I have a very supportive wife who has stuck by my side despite my severe PTSD. After years of therapy and counseling I think I can finally manage it to be able to take my four amazing daughters, Nallely 13, Anahi 7, Ximena 3 and Natalia 1 on a unforgettable trip to Disney World with the help and support from VetTix and their sponsors / donors. I thank you in advance for your consideration!

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.

My wife and I just want to thank the VETTIX foundation and all the incredible donors that made our wish possible. From the bottom of our hearts, bless you. We had a beautiful time and got to share some of the magic this country has to offer and that’s exactly what we serve and continue to serve for. It’s people like you who make us service members proud of what we do. Again, a huge thank you to those who donated, and those who continue to help fulfill veterans wishes.
