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.

My wish is a ski trip to Wintergreen for my family. I'll be returning from a 6 month deployment with the Air Force and a trip to reunite with my family would be an incredible lifetime experience for us. I would like to ask for lift tickets for the family. We live relatively close so we would not need transportation.

Disney World- Princess Anna's dream - 5-day park hopper plus passes
My name is SSG Pamela Garcia. I am on month 5 out of 9 and by the time I return home it will be exactly 12 months of being away from my adorable Princess (Anna). Her dream for the past few years has been to go to Disney World. My wish is for three 5-day park hopper plus passes for Disney World. Being a single mom in both roles is difficult, just a week ago my Anna asked me if we can please go to Disney Upon my redeployment at the end of the summer, especially because I missed her last birthday and upon my return will be two in row. I love the military and serving my country but it is time to recognize also the time I have to be apart from my little one. My Mother Maria is an amazing Angel that has supported my dreams of being in the military and been an Angel taking care of my princess while I am not around. I would really appreciate if you can support me with our wish, it will mean the world to us. Sadly, not even two months after my return I have to go to another training that will enhance my career but will pull me away too soon from my princess, and so being able to take her to Disney World with Grandma (My mom) as she wishes will help comfort for a little-bit and make new memories for the ones missed. Anna will be 7 Years Old on June, I have not been there to accompany her to blow her candles, since her 5th birthday. Sometimes we think of how hard is t be away from our families and how sad it makes us, then yet how sad makes them when we are away not cherishing moments that are so important to all of us. Thank you for the support and helping us make this wish come true.

Disney World Trip (homecoming from Iraq)
My name is TSgt. John Warchol. I’ve just returned from my fourth deployment from Iraq. I’m Active Duty Air Force and I’ve been enlisted for 8 years. My son is three years old and I’ve already missed two of his birthdays and already tasked to miss another one this year. Deployments have been hard on my family. I’ve been deployed for my wife’s pregnancy, birth, and 9 months after he was born. It’s something I’m trying to work with him now for him to understand why daddy has to leave sometimes to protect his country. It’s difficult and I’m looking to see if there is a kind soul that would help send me, my wife, and my son to Disney World for any amount of time. We would be forever grateful by your generosity. Thanks for your time!

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.

Chicago Bears at Soldier Field
Hello, My name is Staff Sergeant Dominic Bender, Retired. My MOS, 19 Delta (Cavalry Scout) During my last deployment our troop was tasked with disrupting insurgent operations in (RC-E)(Regional Command East). My platoon was operating in Ghazni's Aandar district when we ran into a complex ambush. I was in the turret gunning the MK-19 & 240B that day. My Truck was hit with no less then 3 RPG's and a bunch of small arms fire throughout the duration of the engagement. I ended up taking shrapnel to my head and neck and at one point was knocked unconscious. We ended the fight and made it back to our JCOP (Joint Combat Outpost). From there I was Medevaced to a few different field hospitals and eventually flown stateside where I spent 7 months at WRAMC (Walter Reed Army Medical Center) healing. Due to the injuries I sustained I could no longer be in combat arms. I then went on to a WTU (Warrior Transition Unit) and was retired after 14 years in. I miss the uniform but I love being home to watch my 3 children grow up. I have a boy that is 12, a daughter that is 16 and another son that is 18 and they are all HUGE Bears fans, as we are from Chicago. My ultimate Hero's Wish is a Bears/Packers game with my kiddos this Sept. 5th. Its crazy expensive to attend a Bears/Packers game in Chicago and that is why its my Wish! We thank you very much for any donations.
