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.

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.

Walt Disney World Family Vacation
Hi! My name is TSgt Jessica Cherry. I have served 9 years in the Air Force. Six of those years spent on active duty and I am currently on year 3 in the ANG. I recently returned home from an eight month deployment overseas. I am fortunate enough to be a mom to two beautiful children (ages 4 and 6) and to my married to an amazing man, who stepped up while I was away. Of course, missing birthdays, first days of school, holidays, etc. were the most difficult to navigate while being away. At their young ages my kiddos didn't understand why I couldn't just come home. However, we made it and we're all happy that I am back home! I would love to surprise my family with four 4-day hopper passes to Disney World. It would be a dream come true to both of my kids. Honestly, there isn't a week that goes by that I'm not asked if we can go to Disney World "next weekend". They would be absolutely ecstatic to go! Therefore, I am requesting four 4-day hopper passes. However, I would be thankful for any level of support in making this dream come true for them! Thank you for your consideration and your support of my fellow service members whose dreams have been granted!

Disney World Family Experience
I am currently serving my 2nd tour overseas in the Middle East as a part of Patrol Forces Southwest Asia. I am married to my loving wife and blessed with 3 beautiful little girls. As a Coast Guardsman, My wife and children understood the importance of my volunteering for a 2nd tour and the impact I can make for my service and country. Although the work is hard and rewarding, I feel my family has the hardest job, my children being without their father for another year, and most importantly my wife for her sacrifice and struggles of maintaining a household with me gone. Our wish is for my family to have a magical Disney World experience when I complete my deployment and return home. We have already arranged airfare and hotel accommodations, we are respectfully requesting help in attaining 4-day park hopper passes plus option for my family of 5. After a year in the gulf, this wish would truly be our way to not only come together as a family once again, but make wonderful memories in the process. Thank you for taking the time to read and God bless.

Post Deployment Trip to Disney World
Hello and blessings to you all. My name is SFC Rodney Cunningham. I am currently serving in my third deployment (two in Iraq and currently this one in Syria) and coming up on my 18th year of service. This deployment has been a bit tougher than the last two for sure because it is the first one with my family. I have a beautiful wife whom we’ve been married for almost nine years this July and three crazy but awesome boys ages 8, 7, and 6 (which have been keeping my wife so busy while I’ve been away). I never really was ever able to give my wife the honeymoon she deserves when we first got married and this has been very challenging in so many ways for not only me but mostly her. I want to give her and our three boys a magical Disney vacation with a 4-day Hopper pass when I return home. They mean the world to me and deserve so much more. Making this happen would be a magical experience and would help bring our family closer together. Thank you for your support and God Bless you all!!!

Disney World Vacation
I’m SPC Cardenas and I recently got back 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.

Disney World Family Vacation
My name is Charles Clontz, and I would love to be able to have a chance to take my 4 kids to Disney World for the week. My two year old son Jackson loves Mickey Mouse!!! We are currently stationed at Fort Hood Texas away from the coast and getting there is pretty expensive when you factor in driving, plane tickets, hotel and park tickets so being able to get this help from Veterans wish would be a great help to my family.I would like to be able to take my kids to Disney World for the holidays, at the start of the year or into the spring if at all possible. I would love to be able to do the 4 day park hopper tickets to enjoy time with my wife and children.
