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 (six months prior to, while on leave from or 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 Family Vacation
My name is Eric Perkins. I was a Specialist in the NY Army National Guard 2-108th Infantry. I enlisted in July 2001. After September 11th, I was called to active duty for two years to assist with homeland security. I then deployed to Afghanistan from 2007-2008 where I was a member of a six-man team that embedded with and trained the Afghan National Police. In July 2008 I suffered a head injury when a suicide bomber attacked my vehicle; for which I received a Purple Heart. I returned home to my wife and my 3 amazing children; Tyler 8, Owen 6, and Isabella 4. Isabella was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation when she was just a year old and subsequently had to have a neurosurgeon perform a decompression surgery. She has aspiration and reflux problems that require her not drink and receive her hydration by J-tube. Additionally she has sleep apnea which requires her to wear a bi-pap mask while sleeping. Providing the care she, and her brothers, need can be overwhelming at times but we have received the help of some amazing people along the way. All of the kids love Disney but Isabella absolutely loves Frozen. During one of her hospital stays (28 days) she insisted Frozen be played on a loop the entire time. I dream of seeing all of their delight in experiencing the Magic of Disney World. I simply cannot afford to make it happen on my own right now. I am thankful for the existence of this program for all those who it has already helped and I am now humbly wishful it can assist me in creating unforgettable memories for my entire family. I would like to request (5) 4-day Park Hopper Passes to Disney World.

Post Deployment Family Vacation DisneyWorld
My name is SGT Jeremiah Brewington. I am currently deployed to assist in Operation Enduring Freedom. This is my second deployment. During the course of this deployment my wife gave birth to our 4th child prematurely. Our other 3 children (5,4,3) have been more than patient while their mother has adjusted to life with 4 kiddos temporarily on her own. They've had to deal with many of illnesses, unexpected diagnoses, and surgeries while I've been away. I feel that it's time to bring some light into their lives, and would love the opportunity to take them to Disney World.

Universal Studios Honeymoon
My name is Lieutenant Junior Grade Dominic Scharret, My wife and I have been married for almost 5 years now, and I have not been able to take her on a proper honeymoon. I did not have the leave or money at the time of our wedding due to the fact I was stationed in San Diego and our wedding was in Georgia (all of my leave and money was spent on travel back to my duty station). Since our wedding, I have not had time to take her on a proper honeymoon due to deployments, OPTEMPO and the fact I was selected for Officer Candidate School (OCS). After training at OCS, I received my commission and went further into more grueling training for flight school. I have not had time to take any vacations with my wife, let alone make up for her missed honeymoon. Recently, I was selected into the HR community and now, I finally have a position where I have the time to be able to take her on the honeymoon she deserves. I would like to take her to Universal Studios Hollywood. She is obsessed with Harry Potter.

Hamilton for my family
My name is Donny Daughenbaugh, I am a medically retired OIF-II Marine. I was an 0311 and enjoyed being a rifleman and during my short time in Iraq I believe I helped make a difference. One night, 7 weeks into my deployment I was searching a car when the driver shot me in the face. The bullet broke my jaw, and stayed too close to my spinal cord and my brain to be removed. I'm now 12 years post injury and have developed a headache disorder, a small seizure issue and chronic nerve damage from the course of the bullet. I was given a purple heart in Bethesda and used my injury and my ongoing recovery to help me as an advocate for other wounded veterans. My family is very involved in helping to advocate for the needs of wounded veterans and their families. I have a wife, 13 year old daughter, 8 yr old son and a baby on the way! My wife and daughter are big fans of the Hamilton Broadway show. I'd like to add the difficulty in getting these tickets with the possibility of VetTix making it happen to equal an amazing once in a lifetime opportunity for my family.
