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 (six months prior to, while on leave from or 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.

2017 F1 US Grand Prix
My name is Sergeant Troy Thomas. I am currently post-deployment from my second tour in Afghanistan. I am working my way into being more comfortable in crowds and social settings. I am a HUGE Formula One fan and missed most of the past few seasons due to deployments. I have not been to Austin, TX to see the new facility or a race and I would love to take my wife and experience F1, one of my favorite sports. I would like to respectfully request tickets for the practice and qualifying sessions, along with the actual race. Regardless of what I may receive, I am grateful for the opportunity to share my love of F1 and I appreciate your consideration.

Metallica Concert
My son and I are huge Metallica Fans (my wife a little too) and we were so excited when we heard about their 2017 tour.  It is my wish that we could see them in San Diego (or Los Angeles) this year prior to me reporting to my next deployable unit. We've never seen the Metal Gods and it has been a dream of ours for a few years. I am a Navy Corpsman and will be assigned to a Marine Infantry unit whom I will soon deploy with.  There is no preparation that gets your mind ready to leave your family for 6 months, all you can do is come together and make the best of the time you have with each other.  This summer will be my family's last time together for a while, and attending the Metallica Concert would be a perfect send off and lasting memory for us to refer back to during our second deployment.

Trip to Disney World
My name is SrA Ella Tesar and I am currently serving with the Texas Air National Guard. I was Active Duty prior to separating to better raise my daughter. I am currently on my second deployment and will be returning home this summer. My husband, SrA Matthew Tesar, is currently Active Duty in Oklahoma. We have both made many sacrifices and faced many challenges as any military family does. My husband and I believe in taking family vacations rather than spending the money on gifts for holidays and birthday. So, I am looking for help with two 3-Day Park Hopper passes to Disney World in Florida. I'd love to come home and be able to take my family to the most magical place during the most magical time of the year.. Christmas! Thank you for helping fulfill our wish!

Disney World for my family
My name is Spc Stefan Zaldivar. I am currently serving on my second deployment away from my family and this one has been particularly hard on my wife and my three year old son as they have had to do everything on their own. My amazing wife has had to come mom, dad, driver, soccer coach, class teacher, on top of doing everything in the home on her own. Unable to take vacation because she took the time of to help me mobilize she is running on zero days off with a house two dogs and a toddler who is very confused as to why his daddy has had to miss Father's Day, His Birthday, Halloween, Thanksgiving, as well as this upcoming Christmas and other holidays. I am asking for 4 4-day park hopper tickets to allow me to repay my family for sacrificing so much while I have been gone and it getting these tickets it may help offset the cost to allow me to have them stay in a nice hotel and allow me to give them the magical experience that they deserve.

Route 91 Harvest Festival
Hello, I am currently a Marine Corps Sergeant on active duty with 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, 1st Marine Division. I returned from a 7 month deployment in mid September, which had a very long and busy workup to. My Girlfriend and I were unable to spend a lot of time together and missed out on many music events because of the workup and deployment. She and I are big fans of county music and would love the opportunity to attend the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas this year. Thank you all for everything you do for the Military! God bless.

Disneyland Park Hopper Passes
Hello, I am MSgt Douglas McGraw & have served in the USAF for 22+ years. I'm the 3rd generation of my family who's been proud to have served our great nation. My Grandfather was a WWII Battle of the Bulge and Dachau concentration camp liberator, my father who served in the 82nd Airborne from Dominican Republic, Air Cavalry in Vietnam 65 LZ X-ray and then finally the Gulf War in the Air National Guard. I myself have just returned from a 1yr deployment to Kandahar Afghanistan as an Advisor to the Afghan Air Force working daily side by side with my Afghan counterparts. I am married to my wife for 22yrs and been together for 24years. We have 2 grown children. This has been my 5th career contingency deployment among countless other times spent away from my wife who has been by my side faithfully for longer than my military career. The past year saw high stress and even family member death affect our whole family but our marriage in particular suffered. My wife and I have always been in unity in putting our children's needs above our own, to the point of signing over my GI bill to our children. Additionally while in Afghanistan I adopted a stray dog that strayed onto our end of the flight line in Kandahar that has made transition back to daily stateside life a bit stressful. My deep felt wish is to surprise my wife and take her on that long overdue fun filled vacation to show her and my girls how much I appreciate their support. If anyone is able to help bless us, I wish to take them on a 4 day Disneyland park hopper pass. I appreciate Vet Tix for giving Veteran's this amazing platform and to all those who support our men and women in uniform. God bless MSgt Douglas McGraw
