Post-deployment Disney World Wish

Hello everyone! My name is Larry and I recently returned from a 12-month deployment overseas. I am a husband and the father of two wonderful children. My wife has held my family together while working a full-time job over the past year. I would love to surprise my family with 4-day park hopper tickets to Disney World. Can you help me show my gratitude to my wife and kids for their amazing support by taking them on a post-deployment Disney vacation? I am requesting 4 tickets so that I may surprise my wife and our 2 children with a trip. Like many deployed service members I have missed birthdays, holidays, and anniversaries this year and I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to reconnect with my family through this vacation. Thank you for your help in making my family and other service member’s dreams come true!

Disney World- Princess Anna's dream - 5-day park hopper plus passes

My name is SSG Pamela Garcia. I am on month 5 out of 9 and by the time I return home it will be exactly 12 months of being away from my adorable Princess (Anna). Her dream for the past few years has been to go to Disney World. My wish is for three 5-day park hopper plus passes for Disney World. Being a single mom in both roles is difficult, just a week ago my Anna asked me if we can please go to Disney Upon my redeployment at the end of the summer, especially because I missed her last birthday and upon my return will be two in row. I love the military and serving my country but it is time to recognize also the time I have to be apart from my little one. My Mother Maria is an amazing Angel that has supported my dreams of being in the military and been an Angel taking care of my princess while I am not around. I would really appreciate if you can support me with our wish, it will mean the world to us. Sadly, not even two months after my return I have to go to another training that will enhance my career but will pull me away too soon from my princess, and so being able to take her to Disney World with Grandma (My mom) as she wishes will help comfort for a little-bit and make new memories for the ones missed. Anna will be 7 Years Old on June, I have not been there to accompany her to blow her candles, since her 5th birthday. Sometimes we think of how hard is t be away from our families and how sad it makes us, then yet how sad makes them when we are away not cherishing moments that are so important to all of us.
Thank you for the support and helping us make this wish come true.

Walt Disney World

I am Sgt Victoria Fonseca, a mother of four children and currently deployed to Afghanistan. This is the first time I have been away from my children for an extended period of time. I would love to take my deserving children to Disney World upon returning home. My children mean the absolute world to me and doing this for them would make my dreams come true. During this deployment I will miss all four of their birthdays. To see the smiles on their faces would make all of my sacrifices worth every ounce of hard work. My children love the entire Disney line-up and would be very appreciative of this opportunity. I would need 6 tickets for my four children, myself, and my mother who took the time to take care of my children while I deployed. My mother is my support system and I am grateful to have her in my life and would like to express my gratitude to her.

Disney World my family for Christmas

My name is Michael Emerick. I am a combat wounded veteran that served in Afghanistan. During my 16 month deployment I was involved in numerous firefights and sustained a traumatic brain injury after being shot in the helmet. I suffer from debilitating migraine headaches, neck and back issues, double/blurred vision and PTSD. After my deployment I decided that I didn't want to raise a family in the military. I was honorably discharged and moved to Texas to go to Universal Technical Institute. I graduated at the top of my class only to realize that I could not sustain long hours of working underneath vehicles with my back and neck issues. I am now a full time Dad taking care of our five children while my wife works to support our family. Christmas time with five children is incredibly chaotic. We love our large family, but sometimes the joy of Christmas is overshadowed by gifts. We decided we would love to take our five children to Disney World to create lasting memories rather than give them gifts. However, Disney World tickets are much more expensive than we could've imagined, especially for a family of seven.

Minnesota Vikings vs Green Bay Packers game

My name is Tsgt Joye Lamme. I was deployed to the 455 EMDG Bagram Afghanistan from Oct 18 to April 19. I was away from my family for almost 7 months. I missed both my oldest's freshman and senior years due to deployments. I have 2 boys who have been amazing troopers. I'm lucky they are so understanding and adaptable. As a huge Minnesota Vikings fan I would love to be able to go and watch the Vikings play Green Bay at their home stadium with amazing seats! I have just got back from my second deployment to Afghanistan. All of my deployments have been during Football season. Thank goodness for AFN but we were limited on the games that they showed.

Post Deployment Family trip to Walt Disney World

My name is SGT Aaron Keehn. I have a beautiful family. An amazing wife and beautiful 4 yr old little girl named Lily Rose. I am presently completing a 9 month deployment over seas, which resulted in me missing out on holiday and family events, including my daughter's 4th birthday. I would love to take my wife and daughter to Walt Disney World upon return from deployment. This is my second deployment, and I can't think of a better way to make up for lost memories, than building new ones at Walt Disney World. I would like to make a Hero’s Wish to request (3) Disney World 5-day park hopper tickets for my family.

Disney World for 4

My name is TSgt Ryan Marra. I am in the Air Force, Security Forces career field and currently deployed to the Middle East. I have been in the Air Force for over 18 years out of New Jersey. I met and married my wife of 15 years while I was stationed at Malmstrom AFB, Montana. Since then we have 2 awesome, resilient children that have been all over the world. Now that I’m currently deployed, I want to give back to my family after all these moves that I’ve put them through after volunteering for so many different things while in the Air Force. With this possibly my last deployment, I need some help setting up a trip to Disney in Florida for them. Once I return I want to take them to Disney World in Orlando. I thank you for your consideration and help.

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!

Learn to oil paint for PTSD therapy at retreat.

My name is GMG3 Glenn Cernosek. I am a 100% disabled Navy veteran. I served in Vietnam on river patrol boats (PBR's). I was wounded and have PTSD. The Veterans Administration has published documents that prove that art activities, such as painting, can help someone with PTSD cope with those difficulties.

I would like to attend a workshop to learn to oil paint in the outdoors, and learn to sell my paintings to supplement my income.
The Plein Air Convention & Expo will be held next year in Denver Colorado, May 2-6, 2020.
There are over 80 top master artists that will be teaching at this event. There are also sessions about how to market my paintings. The event is fully explained at www.PleinAirConvention.com

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.

Donors, Thank you so much for the donations to make our family Hero's Wish come true. My family was so surprised at the tickets they were overcome with joy. My wife and children were so excited. The first day we went to animal kingdom followed by Epcot, Magic Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios. We had so much fun and trying to save some money to go back in the future. It gave me the opportunity to reconnect with my family after my deployment and pcs move. The quality time with my wife and children was priceless and I am so grateful for your kindness. Everyday we were exhausted because we walked so much that allowed us to do so many things. This time it was awesome being exhausted because it was so much fun. Thank you for caring about veterans and the troops and just know that your donation made such a wonderful impact on this family!

Me and my family can not thank everyone enough for the opportunity that was provided to us. It meant so much for all of us to spend this time together at Disney World. My daughter has wanted to go to Disney for years and for me to be able to return from Iraq and take her there on her first break from school will be a lifetime memory for our whole family. I really can't thank you enough.

Many thanks to VetTix and to all the donors who make this very special program possible. I can’t imagine how much effort goes into making each Hero’s Wish a reality, but I do know it is sincerely appreciated. My family and I had an amazing time seeing Hamilton on Broadway. The performance exceeded all expectations, and I’m positive we’ll remember the experience for many years. Thank you again VetTix, keep up the great work.
