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 woman 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.

Post IA Family Disneyland trip
Hi everyone, my name is CTM1 Estrada I'm currently in the middle of an IA deployment in the middle-east and although this is my 4th deployment. it's the first time that I have deployed since I had my son (currently 3 years old). So, those of you that have experienced this can understand that this deployment has been by far the toughest one. I have been wanting to take my son to Disneyland for a while, but I wanted to wait until he was a little bigger so that he could actually enjoy the park. He will be almost 4 by the time I come back, so I think that it will be perfect timing to take him when I come back from deployment. I'm requesting 3, 4 day park hopper passes to Disneyland so that my son, wife and I can enjoy some quality time after being apart for more than 7 months.

Disney World passes for family vacation
My name is David Tapia, a severely wounded veteran who served in the United States Army. I was awarded a purple heart during my tour in Iraq and later honorably discharged after 4 years. I have a very supportive wife who has stuck by my side despite my severe PTSD. After years of therapy and counseling I think I can finally manage it to be able to take my four amazing daughters, Nallely 13, Anahi 7, Ximena 3 and Natalia 1 on a unforgettable trip to Disney World with the help and support from VetTix and their sponsors / donors. I thank you in advance for your consideration!

Disneyland Post Deployment Dream!
My name is Major Jeremy Colwell. I am an active duty Marine for the last 15 years and I am currently deployed and away from my wife and three children, ages 8,7, and 3. I am missing many important occasions while being away, such as three birthdays, anniversary, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and not to mention school events and the day to day memories being made while my children grow up. It is so hard to be away from them during these times. I would love to be able to take them to Disneyland upon my return in April to make new memories with them all again. We are HUGE Disney fans and cannot think of a better way to reconnect than with some Disney Magic! I am requesting 5 Disneyland 3 Day Park Hopper tickets so we can all go, myself, my wife and three children.
