What is a Hero's Wish?

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.

Help Fulfill a Hero's Wish

Want to help Veteran Tickets Foundation fulfill the wish of one of America's heroes? There are two ways you can help us honor these special members:

  • Make a ticket donation. Simply visit the Hero's Wish page and select a wish that you'd like to help Vet Tix fulfill.
  • Don't have tickets to donate? No problem! You can always support a hero by making a monetary donation toward the wish you select and Vet Tix will purchase the tickets.

New wishes are being submitted all the time, so we encourage you to view the hero's wish page as often as you can.

Thanks to everyone that made our Disneyland Dream a reality! We really appreciate what you do for our military families! Thank you for all your support!

Submit A Hero's Wish

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!

NOTE: Veteran is allowed to submit 1 (ONE) lifetime wish. If wish goes unfilled, that still counts as your one lifetime wish.

I would like to ask for lift tickets for the family. We live relatively close so we would not need transportation.

Disney World for 4
My name is TSgt Ryan Marra. I am in the Air Force, Security Forces career field and currently deployed to the Middle East. I have been in the Air Force for over 18 years out of New Jersey. I met and married my wife of 15 years while I was stationed at Malmstrom AFB, Montana. Since then we have 2 awesome, resilient children that have been all over the world. Now that I’m currently deployed, I want to give back to my family after all these moves that I’ve put them through after volunteering for so many different things while in the Air Force. With this possibly my last deployment, I need some help setting up a trip to Disney in Florida for them. Once I return I want to take them to Disney World in Orlando. I thank you for your consideration and help.

Disney World celebration
My name is TSgt Nate Ellcessor. My wife and I are looking to celebrate our son with a trip to Disney. I just returned from deployment to the Middle East. While I was deployed, my wife took care of our foster son and attended all scheduled visits and court appearances. Well after I returned, we found out we will be adopting our son. We want to celebrate by taking home to Disney World in October!

Post Deployment Disney Dream for Special Needs Family
My name is SFC Victor Long. I am currently on my 5th overseas deployment, and coming up on my 16th year of service with the US Army. I've missed countless birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, my son's first day of kindergarten, family events, etc. My wife is our family's cheerleader, supporter, advocate, teacher, nurse, taxi driver and more. Our 5 year old son was diagnosed with Autism right before his 2nd birthday. She always makes certain he has every resource, therapy session, doctor's visit, and specialized care he needs to thrive. My dream is to surprise my wife and son with a trip to Disneyland. It has been their wish to go when I return from deployment. Due to my unpredictable schedule, we haven't been able to take a family vacation since our son was born 5 years ago, and I would love this opportunity to reconnect as a family at The Happiest Place on Earth!

Disney World Trip
My name is SSG Kevin Dubois. I have been a solider in the US ARMY for almost 9 years. I have had 2 deployments. I just recently returned from a 9 month deployment to Iraq. During deployment I missed my daughter's 3rd birthday and the only thing she has asked for is to got to Disney when I got home. Our money is tight because we are paying off debt so we can buy a home in a few years. So my wish is to take my 3 year old daughter and wife to Disney during my Christmas vacation. So any help to make her wish come true would be very appreciated.

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.
