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 - Post Deployment with my family
I am CW3 Dennis White, a member of the Indiana National Guard with the 38th Sustainment Brigade, currently serving in Kuwait in support of several operations. I have been blessed to serve my State and this great Nation for over 23 years. I am married to Angela and have three boys Shad, Jaden and Brenner as well as a sweet girl, Brayleigh. All of my kids and especially my wife, have made countless sacrifices in order for me to serve. I have missed countless anniversaries (2 back to back these past years), birthdays, and a majority of my son's Senior year in High School. I also coach sports for my hometown school, Paul Hadley Middle School, as a lay coach and have missed this years sports teams and the ability to coach and mentor young student athletes. I really want to represent them and my family well while serving and want to take my family to Disney as a thank you for their enduring sacrifices they make so that I can do the job I love. I would love to take the family to Disney World after my deployment. The past year even for the train up has been non-stop with over 8 weeks on and off of training and now this deployment. Would love to be able to spend time with my family of 6 at Disney World. We have had to table trips because of many other time demanding events and need some away time as a family. It would be a true privilege to receive this Wish of 6, 5 day Armed Forces Salute tickets in order to treat my family to a well deserved get away. Thank you for your consideration and thank you for supporting this who serve.

Disneyland park hopper passes for the holidays
My name is 1LT Steven Sexton and I am currently deployed with the 79 Infantry Brigade Combat Team in support of Operation Joint Guardian. As it stands now, I will be home just in time for Christmas, therefore my wish is for 4 Disneyland/California Park hopper tickets so I can celebrate a special holiday season with my family when I return. Once this deployment is completed; of my first 29 months in the service I will have been away from my family for 16 of those months. Through it all, my wife has been very supportive each time I have had to leave for deployment, schools or state emergency, all while holding down a full-time job as a first grade teacher and taking care of our two energetic daughters. So this wish is not just for me but for my family who I believe deserve a special gift for the holidays. Thank you.

Harry Potter World After Deployment for family of seven.
My name is CPT James Houston. Our family has just survived a year long deployment. This included a move across the country for my wife and five teens while I was away. They are all avid Harry Potter fans and I'd love to create a memorable, relaxing experience to have a delightful time together with one week for all 7 of us at Orlando Universal Studios' "Wizarding World of Harry Potter". Our kids have always dreamed of going but we have never been able to make that happen. Would love to have this trip be our Christmas this year. Thank you so much.

Disney World Vacation for Family
My name is SSG Joseph Weghorst. I'm in the Army with 12 years of service, I'm on my 4th deployment, 3 to Iraq and 1 to Afghanistan. This deployment I am in Iraq and have been away for 5 months, prior to this I did one 15 month tour to Iraq, and 12 to Iraq and Afghanistan. I joined the Army when my kids were 5 and 3 and have spent all four of my deployments away from them. This year is my daughters senior year of High School and I have missed it, but should be home just in time for her graduation and would like to take her to Disney after graduation and before college. For block leave prior to this deployment I was suppose to take her to Disney, but my mother tested positive for breast cancer so we cancelled our Disney trip and visited my mother.

Disney World park hopper tickets
I am Chief Petty Officer Christopher Fisk and have been in the Navy for 12 years. I have a beautiful family of 6. My wife Hannah and my children Heaven, Italia, Derek, and Maddox. I recently just got back from my deployment to Iraq and Kuwait. This past deployment was the hardest one to date since I deployed when my youngest son was just 3 months old. My wife had to take care of three children plus a newborn all by herself during my deployment. We just recently moved to Florida from California and the children are having a hard time making friends at their new schools and also getting adjusted. Since I have been back from deployment our family has not been able to spend quality time together due to our PCS among other things. It would mean everything to my family to be blessed with this and we would love to experience the magical moments Disney World has to offer. A trip to Disney World would be the ultimate blessing for our family as it allows us to spend quality time together and reconnect. Please consider this request as you would be making a true impact in our lives and we would be forever grateful. Thank you in advance and God bless.
