What is a Hero's Wish?

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.

Help Fulfill a Hero's Wish

Want to help Veteran Tickets Foundation fulfill the wish of one of America's heroes? There are two ways you can help us honor these special members:

  • Make a ticket donation. Simply visit the Hero's Wish page and select a wish that you'd like to help Vet Tix fulfill.
  • Don't have tickets to donate? No problem! You can always support a hero by making a monetary donation toward the wish you select and Vet Tix will purchase the tickets.

New wishes are being submitted all the time, so we encourage you to view the hero's wish page as often as you can.

Thanks to everyone that made our Disneyland Dream a reality! We really appreciate what you do for our military families! Thank you for all your support!

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.

Disney World Vacation
I'm Gabriel, and I recently returned 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.

Hello, My name is Joshua. I am currently serving in the Air National Guard. I have been in the military for 12 years, spending 4 Active Duty in the Marine Corps as an Infantry and 8 in the Air National Guard as a Firefighter. I have had three Deployments, two to Okinawa and one to Kuwait. I have a Wife and 3 Kids, ages 22,10 and 4. While I was deployed, our Son enlisted into the Air Force and left for basic in San Antonio before I could see him when I returned. I have not seen or talked to him in about a year. When he gets home, I would like to take a Family vacation, make up for some lost time that we all missed with the deployments and the time apart, and thank them for all the sacrifices they have made to help me with deployments and time away. I’m requesting five 4-day park hopper tickets to Disney World in Florida. We want to leave for the vacation on December 27. Any help would be tremendous. Thank you in advance for all your support.

Post Deployment Disney World Trip
Hello, my name is Jeffrey, and I am currently deployed to the Middle East. I have a 3-year-old son who loves everything Disney and an almost 9-month-old daughter, born a month before I left, but is the happiest little girl in the world. Since this is my first deployment, the whole family has had some major life transitions and stresses simultaneously. We planned on taking the kids to Disney World for my son’s 4th birthday after I got home, but budgeting while gone and trying to plan a fun vacation for the family has been difficult. After hearing about your program, being accepted by the Hero’s Wish program would be a blessing. I appreciate what you’re doing for our service members and would love the opportunity to use your services to bring some happiness to my family. Thank you!

Family Walt Disney World Vacation
I'm Clayton, and in the picture are my wife and my 1-year-old daughter (not pictured our three fur animals)! I am currently deployed, and we want a vacation to Walt Disney World upon my return! My daughter will be 2 soon, and she already loves everything Disney. My wife was classified as an essential medical employee, so we have had a long couple of years between COVID-19, pregnancy, and this deployment. We hope to finally wind down for a bit and enjoy some quality time together as partners and parents. We greatly appreciate every one of you taking the time to read this, and thank you so much for everything in advance!

Family trip to Disneyland
My name is Jesse. I'm currently deployed for a 2nd time in the 11 year AF career. I have a loving wife, Kaitlyn and together have two beautiful children Reiley (3) and Everett (1.5). I have missed both of my children's birthdays along with the summer holidays this year. My hope is to be enjoy a family vacation together when I return home from this deployment. This is my first deployment with a wife and 2 kids at home. The last 7 months without our family being together has been very hard on us. I have missed a lot of quality family time since April and we would love to make up for it by going on a Disney trip! We haven't been on a family vacation since we have had kids and would love to finally go on one! Disneyland would absolutely be a dream come true as None of us have ever been there before so we're really excited to hopefully be able to go!
