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.

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:

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

Wish: DISNEYLAND DREAM!
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.

Hero's Wish - Universal  Studios Orlando Tickets
Hello! My name is David. I am currently on my 3rd career deployment and would like to be able to take my family to Universal Orlando for a day before we embark on our first family cruise. My daughter (7) is a huge Harry Potter fan and has talked about going to Universal since we PCSed to Ft. Stewart and are near Orlando. I should return from my deployment around May/June 2024, and we wish to go to Universal Orlando on December 15, 2024 before we leave for our cruise on the 16th. Looking at the ticket we would love a 1 day park-to-park ticket to be able to do Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, where the Harry Potter areas of the park are, as well as being able to take the Hogwarts Express. Thank you for the opportunity to enhance the family time I have and take my family on a trip.

WWE Wrestlemania 2024
My name is Ricardo. I am currently deployed to Jordan as part of Operation Inherent Resolve. I am married with 3 kids. My son plays hockey and loves to watch football, baseball, hockey, and wrestling. My youngest daughter likes to skate. I love to watch both of them on the ice. Being at the rink is my happy place. My son just had his 11 birthday. This is the first time I have been away from him and been unable to celebrate. I told him that we would do something fun when I get back. We love to attend sporting events together. I wish to take him to WrestleMania 2024 in Philadelphia. I have taken him to Smackdown before and he has always been so appreciative. He would totally flip out if I took him to WrestleMania. I would like to thank everyone who donates to this site. It allows people like me a chance to spent valuable time with those we care about the most and to escape the worlds problems for a brief moment.

Post-Deployment Disney World Trip
I'm Active Duty Army who returned from deployment in August. I've been in the Army for 14 years with 3 Deployments to various Countries around the world. I would love to be able to take my family on a trip to Disney World once we PCS and settle down. I've been married to my wife for 5 years and we have 2 kids. My son is 1 and my daughter is 3. My wife is a very compassionate/strong person that given up her career to raise our children at home. She has gone through a lot this past year with deployment and being away for training. (I can't imagine how tough it is raising 2 kids virtually by yourself) I would love to be able to take my family on a trip to Disney World to regain some of the time I've missed and build memories that will last forever. If you could help make our trip possible we would be forever grateful! Thank you!

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!
