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.

Submit A Hero's Wish

Are you Currently Serving Military (six months prior to combat deployment, 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!

Disneyland Family Vacation - 5-day park hoppers
My name is Major Ryan White. I am currently deployed and part way through what will be a long 8 month separation. I am leaving behind my beautiful wife and two kids with a promise to make up the months of memories and moments when I return. My son is a huge Disney and Star Wars fan, and my daughter is just now warming up to the idea of a six foot tall Minnie Mouse. When I return I fully intend on taking my family on a much deserved vacation to California's Disneyland. I am asking for 3 tickets to a 5 day Disneyland adventure where my family and I can relax, recovery, and recoup some missed moments together. Thank you for all of your support and God bless.

Disney World Family Trip
My name is SGT Michael Fuller and I am currently deployed. My wife recently told me that my son has been saving money to take me to Disney World when I get home from this deployment. I have served for about 9 years now and this is my 3 deployment. This is my 1st deployment as a married man and father of 2 kids. My son is 5 and my daughter is 2. I missed their birthdays and every holiday this deployment and I would love to make it up to them. We are asking for the Military Salute Park Hopper tickets for 5 days. My wife tells me my daughter loves Disney princesses and my son wants to ride the roller coasters with me. Please help me make their dream come true.

Universal Orlando tickets
My name is Sgt. Joshua McCart. While on my 2nd deployment with the 82nd Airborne (1/325) the truck I was in was hit by an IED( Feb.2007). This blast resulted in loss of hearing, multiple shrapnel wounds and the loss of my right hand. Like most people experiencing severe combat wounds I have been through many surgeries and even more mental and emotional struggles. I have been married for 12 years this year and have a 17 year old and 7 year old son. We would like to go to Universal Studios this October because it is a place that has something for every age. My 17 year old graduated this month and will start college soon. I would also like to take my mother in law who has been by our side every step of our journey. She has traveled when needed and watched the kids and dogs for every surgery or issue we have had during my recovery. Not to mention she has been an invaluable support for my wife so that my wife could in turn be supportive to me.

Hamilton at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC
My name is LCDR Hugh Wilson. In December 2017 I returned from a reserve mobilization and six month deployment to Iraq. The deployment was a rewarding experience, but was somewhat unexpected and followed 14 months of working the night shift as a warehouse manager. During the deployment, my wife (a former Army Officer and Afghanistan veteran) was pregnant with our second daughter (she was born 3 days after I returned), raising our 2 year old and working full time. She never complained once throughout my deployment and was an amazing partner to me and mother to our girls. I would like to do something special for her to show my appreciation for the outstanding support and care she provided to our daughters and I while I was deployed. I would like to request two ticket for my wife and I to attend Hamilton when the touring production comes to the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.

Louder Than Life Concert Weekend
My name is SSG Tanner Kuth. I would love to attend the Louder than life music festival in September 28-30 with my fiance and my kids. We would be driving up from Georgia and camping for the event. I was injured in an IED blast in Afghanistan in 2009 breaking my neck, back, butt, and both feet and legs. Ultimately I lost my left leg below the knee and went 70% blind in my right eye.
