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.

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.

Hello, my name is Rebekah. I am a Hospital Corpsman Petty Officer First Class.

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