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.

Disney World, Orlando Florida
My name is SMSgt Jason Walker and I have served in the Air Force for 27 years and counting. I recently got back from a deployment in Afghanistan. I have been deployed all across the world from South Korea, Djibouti, Iraq, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Germany, and many more. My deployments have always put a great deal of stress on my wife, Gretchen, and two daughters, Simone and Saffron (18 & 12) and I haven’t been able to show them my appreciation for all they have done back here at home. I am hoping to take them on a much needed trip this summer to Disney World in Florida for some family time and a stress reliever. We’ve never taken a family vacation and this trip would mean the world to my family and I. Thank you for your consideration and God bless.

Spring Break Universal Studios Orlando
My name is MSgt Mark Goenen. This is my 8th deployment during my career. I am currently serving as Fire Chief for a newly established "bare base" in Saudi Arabia. When we arrived on the ground there were less than 20 tents and no capability for Fire Emergency Services. Over our 180+ day deployment we will have built a base that will accommodate 2K personnel on a permanent basis. This deployment will see me miss 3 birthdays, wedding anniversary, and the winter holidays. I was chosen for this deployment on a very short notice, I had under one month to prepare to deploy and make sure the girls were taken care of during my absence. It would be a wonderful gift to take my girls to Universal Studios Orlando, (they are HUGE Harry Potter fans) as my girls have all been working very hard in school and life to overcome my absence for 6 months.

Disneyland family vacation
My name is SSG Donald Watson, I would love to surprise my family of 5 with a post deployment vacation to Disneyland. My family has supported me through every deployment, training and I want to thank them. I have been active duty for 11 years and I have deployed twice to Iraq, once to Afghanistan, once to Korea and I am currently deployed. Through these deployments and trainings I have missed many holidays and special occasions. My daughter is now 7 and I have only been present for her 2nd birthday. I would love to take this vacation in September for her birthday before my next possible deployment in late 2020.

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!

Disneyland Dream Vacation
My name is TSgt. Steven Wilson. I retired from the USAF in 2014 after serving for 17 years, I was deployed to Iraq, on my 4th deployment (2011) I was injured in an IED blast. I received a Purple Heart due to my TBI, I also suffer from hearing loss, back and knee pain, PTSD, migraines and memory issues. I had brain surgery in 2013 and had to cut my military career short due to ongoing symptoms from the blasts. My wife and children have supported me through all of my ups and downs since my injury, it would be nice to spend quality time with my family at the Happiest Place on Earth. I would love to take my large family to Disneyland, my children have not experienced the fun and magic of Disneyland, I would love to share that with them. I would like to request 12 three day park hopper passes so we could all go together. My children are 17, 16, 15 & 15 (twins), 14, 12, 8, 4 and nearly 3 & 3 (twins).

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.
