What is a Hero's Wish?


Wish: SKI LIFT TICKET
All, Thank you for granting my wish this year. It has been a hard year with combat deployments and other personnel things in my life. This day is a day that I will never forget. Again thank you. Respectfully MSGT Sagredo Ismael

Hero's Wish Veteran Tickets Foundation is proud to bring the Hero's Wish program to our members!

Deployed, wounded and families of those killed in action are shouldering the hardest burdens of military service. Their duty has impacted their lives in ways the rest of America can only imagine. To relieve their burden of stress Vet Tix would like to give a once in a lifetime event to these Heroes. Hero's Wish events create wonderful experiences that they can always remember to heal their spirit and bring them together as a family. For those who have suffered, we want to welcome them back and bring enjoyment back into their lives.

Hero's Wish allows members who meet certain criteria to request specific tickets for any single event (NOTE: We are not capable of fulfilling meet and greets, trips, cruises, hotel stays or flights), and have donors fulfill that request either by ticket donation or by donating money to make the hero's wish come true.

The Hero's Wish program can be used by Active Duty Military Personnel (up to six months after their deployments), severely wounded Veterans (Purple Heart Required) and the families of men and women killed in action (KIA).

After submitting a Hero's Wish, Vet Tix will work with the veteran to verify the Hero's Wish requirements are met. If all criteria are met, a member of the Hero's Wish will be assigned to facilitate wish fulfillment. Veteran Tickets Foundation does not discriminate based on race, religion, sex or social status.

The Vet Tix Hero's Wish team and other volunteers explore possible ways to make the Hero's Wish come true for our veteran. Most Hero's Wishes are funded on a case by case basis with funds donated through the website and by the Hero's Wish team working hard with our donors and venues to make the Hero's Wish a reality.

Submit A Hero's Wish

Are you Currently Serving Military (six months after a deployment, or while on leave from deployment), a severely wounded Veteran (Purple Heart Required) or a family member of someone who was killed in action (KIA)?

If you are and you have not received a wish from another wish-granting organization, then you are eligible for our Hero's Wish Program! All you need to do is complete a few easy steps and Veteran Tickets Foundation will get started on making your Hero's Wish come true!

NOTE: Veteran is allowed to submit 1 (ONE) lifetime wish. If wish goes unfilled, that still counts as your one lifetime wish.

Tickets for a Disney World
Hello, my name is Rebekah. I am a Hospital Corpsman Petty Officer First Class. I just got home from an 8 month deployment to Iraq and would love to be able to take my husband and our 2 daughters ages 6 and 4 to Disney World. They were all so strong while I was gone and my husband was amazing for keeping everything together. I would love to give back and thank them for their sacrifice and service to our country. This would be a wish come true for us and give us some much needed family time!

Family Disney Trip After 1 Year Deployment
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
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.

Family trip to Orlando Disney
Hi, my name is Richie. I'm a 19 D Cav Scout in the U.S. Army. I'm active duty and have been in the Army for 10.5 years. I'm currently serving on my 2nd deployment. In the picture, you see my family and I moments before I left for deployment. Me and my wife have 3 handsome boys ages 13,12 and 5. I will return back in a few weeks and would love to surprise my family with a vacation to Disney World. I would really be grateful for my "Hero's Wish" to be able to get five (3-day Park Hopper) tickets to make some great memories with my wife and children.

Take my family to Disney World
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.
