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.

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.

Disney World Family Vacation
Hello. My father, Capt. Carl E. Jackson, is MIA from Vietnam as of June 27, 1965. We never got a body back - only a few personal belongings. We were told several different stories about what might have happened to him and will never truth from fiction. Initially, we were told he was KIA. We later found out that there was an attempt to rescue him from a POW camp in October, 1966. Dad was a Captain at the time of his Vietnam incident. I am not sure how many deployments he was sent on as I was only 10 when the incident occurred. I do know that he was away from home a lot. My father was away much of my life and aside from the trips to visit grandparents, there was only one vacation that we went on. That is one of the dearest memories that I have of him. I would like to take my husband, children (daughter, son-in-law, and son), and my grandchildren (girl, boy, and one on the way) to Disney World so that we all can have our own memories. I thank you for your consideration.

Disney World Florida Family Vacation
Hello, my name is SPC Trenton Davis, I am an MP currently deployed to the Middle East as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. The only downside to serving my country was leaving my beautiful wife behind. As she has been so supportive during this deployment, I’d love nothing more than to be able to take her on a Disney world vacation to Florida. Providing all goes well, I am set to return home October 2020. I am requesting 2, four day park hopper tickets to Disney World in Orlando, Florida. I want to ensure she knows how much I appreciate the tremendous support and love I have received from her. I genuinely appreciate all the support and assistance from those donating to these causes. Your contributions mean more than you know to soldiers. Thank you.

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 Park Hopper passes for family of 6
My name is SFC William Moore. I have been in the US Army Reserves for 10 years and currently serving my 2nd deployment in Iraq. My wife is home with our four awesome kids, Grace 14, Danielle 7, Liam 5 and David 3. This had been our toughest deployment- I have missed many holidays, family events and family emergencies. When I return home I would love to take my family for some much needed fun and magic at Disney World FL. We are humbled and thankful to be considered for this wish fulfillment. Thank you VETTIX for all you do!

Family of 6 Disney World Wish
My name is SPC Andrew Boktor. I have been in the Army National Guard since high school and this September will make 9 years total. I was on a 15 month deployment because my return date continued to get delayed due to COVID 19. This was my first deployment and it was one of the hardest yet rewarding things to do in my life. I missed holidays, special occasions and the passing of my grandmother and uncle. It is a honor to serve our great country. However, I could not have done that without my amazing support system back home. My wife, mother, father, brother & sister-in law, all made me stronger during the deployment. My wife’s family took me on my first Disney trip 9 years ago and we all enjoyed the extraordinary time together. My father in law has recently been diagnosed with a debilitating disease called Inclusion Body Myositis. His time of being ambulatory may come to an end sooner than we all would like. I just want to be able to give back to my family as much as they have given to me. This is the first time I have been away from my wife (we went to middle school, high school, and college together) and it took a stressful toll on both of us. She is my rock. I just want to show my appreciation for my family by taking them on a trip to Disney World in Orlando, FL. I am asking for 4 day tickets for 6 members of my family. Their strength and prayers helped bring me home safe. With all the negativity going on during a pandemic and deployment, my family deserves some magic and joy. We are truly humbled and thankful to be considered for this wish fulfillment. Thank you VETTIX for all you do!
