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.

Post Deployment Family trip to Walt Disney World
My name is SGT Aaron Keehn. I have a beautiful family. An amazing wife and beautiful 4 yr old little girl named Lily Rose. I am presently completing a 9 month deployment over seas, which resulted in me missing out on holiday and family events, including my daughter's 4th birthday. I would love to take my wife and daughter to Walt Disney World upon return from deployment. This is my second deployment, and I can't think of a better way to make up for lost memories, than building new ones at Walt Disney World. I would like to make a Hero’s Wish to request (3) Disney World 5-day park hopper tickets for my family.

Aerosmith Deuces are Wild Las Vegas Reseidency
My name is Lt Bernard Mutz. I have been serving proudly in the USAF for the past twelve years. I just returned from a 7 month deployment. My wife has been a huge Aerosmith fan since childhood. She has twice had tickets to this concert and both times had the tours cancelled due weather. I would love to be able to surprise her with tickets to Aerosmith at MGM in Las Vegas in June 2019. She has been the rock and constant for our family and has filled the role of mother and father flawlessly to my two children, 5 and 3. I thank you for this opportunity.

(6) Disney World 4 Day Park Hopper Tickets
Hello My name is Petty Officer Brandon Moore. I am currently serving Active Duty with the United States Coast Guard and have been for the last 11 Years. My Wife and I have 4 beautiful Children together. I have been deployed 12 months out of the last 24 months. It is hard explaining to my little ones that I am going to be gone for a while. I have missed countless Holidays, Birthdays, and most of all my kids growing up. My wish is to take my wife and 3 kids to Disney World in hopes that I can recreate some missed memories! Thanks in advance!

Post-deployment Disney World Park Hopper Plus for a dream come true family vacation
My name is CWO3 Damien Wieland. I am currently on my 11th deployment in the Navy where I have proudly served for almost 20 years. Despite only one shore duty thus far, I maintain that the Navy has been fantastic for my family which is why we continue to serve while sacrificing precious family time in the name of freedom. Through years of service, multiple deployments and a number of extended TDY’s my incredible family has missed my presence during countless birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas’ and other meaningful events. My wife has sacrificed the most yet continues to be the lighthouse this Sailor depends on. With multiple PCS moves and a complete lack of stability I consider myself both blessed and fortunate to have a loving and understanding support system at home; we are all proud patriots of this great country. That said, it would be amazing to be able to put huge smiles on my families faces with a dream come true vacation to Disney World. Disney holds a special place in my kids’ life as, when home, we sit down as a family for Disney movie nights when able and the memories from a once in a lifetime vacation to Disney World would be the icing on the cake to them. I would personally be ecstatic to share that the kind people of the world recognized their sacrifices and wanted them to have a dream come true vacation to spend time with mommy, daddy, and all of their Disney heroes. Thank you so much in advance for kindness and consideration to this loving and appreciative family. We are all proud to serve and will continue to do so for many more years to come!

Post Deployment Family Disney World Trip
My name is LTJG Richardson and I just returned home from deployment on USS Arleigh Burke. Overall, I have been out to sea over 300 days in the last year and a half on three different ships. My incredible wife has held down the fort on the home front, taking care of our amazing children, giving birth to #5 on her own along the way. My family has been so strong through this time and I would like to thank them with a trip to Disney World during their spring break from April 8-12. My kids are aged 8, 6, 4, 2 and 7 months. This would be a wonderful gift tot hem to show them how much I appreciate their sacrifice. I am only requesting 4 tickets, as the younger two would be free and we can get the fifth ticket on our own. Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity.

Post Deployment Disney World Trip - 4 Day Hopper Pass
My name is SGT Michael J. Barton III. I got married to the love of my life and we had our son a year ago. I’ve been deployed for almost all of our marriage so far. Shortly after getting married we moved to Ft. Campbell where i was quickly put on orders to deploy to Afghanistan for 9 months. My wife and I never got an opportunity to go on our honeymoon and this trip to Disney World would be the best trip to reconnect and create new memories at a place where we have never gone before. I do not return until March and I would love to show my wife how much I appreciate her holding down the house during our first deployment together as a family.
