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.

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!

Spring Break Universal Studios Orlando
My name is MSgt Mark Goenen. This is my 8th deployment during my career. I am currently serving as Fire Chief for a newly established "bare base" in Saudi Arabia. When we arrived on the ground there were less than 20 tents and no capability for Fire Emergency Services. Over our 180+ day deployment we will have built a base that will accommodate 2K personnel on a permanent basis. This deployment will see me miss 3 birthdays, wedding anniversary, and the winter holidays. I was chosen for this deployment on a very short notice, I had under one month to prepare to deploy and make sure the girls were taken care of during my absence. It would be a wonderful gift to take my girls to Universal Studios Orlando, (they are HUGE Harry Potter fans) as my girls have all been working very hard in school and life to overcome my absence for 6 months.

Family Vacation to Universal Studios
My name is SGT Luis Montillas. I have been with the Connecticut Army National Guard for 12 years. I am presently deployed in Afghanistan and I am scheduled to return from my 3rd deployment (once Iraq, twice Afghanistan) early fall. My family, two children 9, 16, and wife have supported me throughout the 12 years of service and multiple deployments, but this deployment has been the hardest for them. My son who is 9 has been affected by it the most. It has been hard for him to video chat with me over the last year, because it makes him sad that I am away and can not do the things we normally do together. I would love to be able to take my family on a vacation to Florida and visit Universal Studios for 5 days, during the kids winter or spring break in 2021. This would mean the world to my family as they have always wanted to visit Universal Studios, and most importantly to my son who is a huge Transformer and Jurassic Park fan. Thank you VetTix for all you've done over the years, and for the donors for supporting us service members. Thank you for your consideration.

Family trip to Disney World
I’ve always wanted to take my family to Disney World but with 3 of my 5 kids being special needs, money is a large obstacle. I’m currently on deployment and desperately want to take my family to Disney when I return from this long deployment. We are a family of 7 and this cannot ever happen without a granted wish as I barely make what we need to survive. I’m an E-4 been in service for 8 years and on a 15 month deployment to Iraq

Universal studios CA for disabled veteran
My Name is Sgt. Kathleen Sarrica. I am a disabled veteran with 2 children and a husband. I deployed to Iraq in 2009-2010. I lost my first husband in Iraq and my nephew in Afghanistan. We live on a very fixed income and I’d like nothing more than to reward my family with a vacation to Universal studios. My family has suffered not only with my absence during deployment but with the aftermath of said deployment. I’m rated 100% and life has been so extremely hard for us in the past 9 years. I suffer PTSD, an anxiety disorder as well as being the victim of MST (military Sexual Trama). Seizures can come at anytime, often without warning. My family has suffered extensively with my health issues. It would be so wonderful to be able to give back and show my family how appreciative I am of them for sticking by my side. Universal Studios would be a great reward for my family for sticking with me through thick and thin. I would just like to give back to my family for always being there. They are my definition of real life heroes. I try everyday to be the best mom I can possibly be, but sometimes it gets the best of me. We’ve never been on vacation and I feel this would be a great way to show my kids that no matter what life throws at you family is always #1.
