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 women 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.

Are you Currently Serving Military (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!

Post-Deployment Disneyland Vacation!
Hello! I’ve been active duty Air Force for the last 9 and a half years and am currently on my fourth deployment. I’d love to be able to take my family on a vacation to Disneyland with 3-day park hopper tickets for three when I return home. I returned home from deployment #3 in February of 2021 and was asked to take deployment number #4 in March of 2022, leaving in April a week after returning home from my honeymoon. My family has been nothing but supportive and strong throughout these back to back tours and I’d love nothing more than to take them on an amazing vacation to spoil them and spend time with them.

Disney World Family Experience
I am currently serving my 2nd tour overseas in the Middle East as a part of Patrol Forces Southwest Asia. I am married to my loving wife and blessed with 3 beautiful little girls. As a Coast Guardsman, My wife and children understood the importance of my volunteering for a 2nd tour and the impact I can make for my service and country. Although the work is hard and rewarding, I feel my family has the hardest job, my children being without their father for another year, and most importantly my wife for her sacrifice and struggles of maintaining a household with me gone. Our wish is for my family to have a magical Disney World experience when I complete my deployment and return home. We have already arranged airfare and hotel accommodations, we are respectfully requesting help in attaining 4-day park hopper passes plus option for my family of 5. After a year in the gulf, this wish would truly be our way to not only come together as a family once again, but make wonderful memories in the process. Thank you for taking the time to read and God bless.

Post Deployment Trip - Discovery Cove Dolphin swim package + 2 parks
My name is Maj. Nicholas Collazo. I have almost 20 years in service, and multiple deployments and TDYs over the years, and this deployment has been the hardest as our children are now older. My wife is currently working on her Ph.D., homeschooling our youngest three, and moved our oldest to college across the country alone during my deployment. I would love to be able to take my wife and children on a trip to swim with the dolphins with a visit Sea World and Aquatica to spend time and reconnect (with their park bundle pass). This time together will give us chance to have fun and reconnect as a family, doing something we have always wanted to do. I am requesting 6 tickets in total for the dolphin swim park bundle, for myself, my wife, and our four children. Thank you for your support, and God Bless.

Walt Disney World Family Vacation
Hi! My name is TSgt Jessica Cherry. I have served 9 years in the Air Force. Six of those years spent on active duty and I am currently on year 3 in the ANG. I recently returned home from an eight month deployment overseas. I am fortunate enough to be a mom to two beautiful children (ages 4 and 6) and to my married to an amazing man, who stepped up while I was away. Of course, missing birthdays, first days of school, holidays, etc. were the most difficult to navigate while being away. At their young ages my kiddos didn't understand why I couldn't just come home. However, we made it and we're all happy that I am back home! I would love to surprise my family with four 4-day hopper passes to Disney World. It would be a dream come true to both of my kids. Honestly, there isn't a week that goes by that I'm not asked if we can go to Disney World "next weekend". They would be absolutely ecstatic to go! Therefore, I am requesting four 4-day hopper passes. However, I would be thankful for any level of support in making this dream come true for them! Thank you for your consideration and your support of my fellow service members whose dreams have been granted!
