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 women 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.

Post Deployment Disney World Trip
Hello my name is SSG Jeffrey Walston and I am currently deployed to the Middle East. I have a 3 year old son who absolutely loves everything Disney and almost 9 month old daughter who was born a month before I left but is the happiest little girl in the world. Since this is my first deployment, the whole family has had some major life transitions and stresses happen all at once. We planned on taking the kids to Disney World for my son’s 4th birthday after I get home, but budgeting while gone and trying to plan a fun vacation for the family has been tough. After hearing about your program, it would be a blessing to be accepted by the Hero’s Wish program. I appreciate what you’re doing for our service members and would love the opportunity to use your services to bring some happiness to my family. Thank you!

A Disney World Dream Come True For My Princess
My name is SPC Jeremy Shine. I am a father of an awesome 6 year old daughter who was recently diagnosed with severe autism. Our little family has faced some challenges over the years but we are determined to live life to the fullest. While serving in Iraq, just a few months ago, my wife decided to put her career on hold to provide more educational assistance to my daughter, which became emotionally, physically, and financially draining. Especially because my wife has been battling a mental illness of her own. I believe that if given this opportunity, we will be able to reconnect and create new healthy memories post deployment. Who knows what that would mean for my little princess! If you are able, we are requesting 4-day hopper tickets to Orlando’s Disney Theme Parks. We are planning on going August 17-24, 2023. Thank you for your support.

Walt Disney World Family Vacation
I'm a SFC in the Army National Guard currently serving my 3rd tour to the Middle East. I've been in the guard for 17.5 years and I'm wishing to be able to take my family on a trip to Disney World when I get home from my deployment. I've been married to my wife for 12 years and we have 3 kids. During the Covid Pandemic my wife and I found out that her niece was having issues with her living situation, we decided to adopt her to give her a better life. My wife is a very strong and caring person that has had to deal with so much over my career in the military with deployments and being away for military training. I would love to be able to take my family on a trip to Disney World to show them how much I appreciated their support and how much I care about them. I would like 5 (4 Day Park Hopper) passes for myself my wife and 3 kids (19, 12 & 4). If you could help make our trip possible my family would be very grateful. Thank You

Hello, I'm Technical Sergeant Nicholas Cosand. I've served in the active-duty Air Force for 8 years as a cybersecurity technician. I have been overseas for 4 of those years and TDY over 10 times. I have been married to my wonderful and supportive wife Carly going on six years. Recently I was tasked with a short-notice deployment to the Middle East immediately after returning home from a long TDY. This has caused me to be away from home and my family for all but two months of 2022. Throughout this, my wife has been so understanding and has been my anchor of sanity and support. I know this has been equally as hard on her as it has been for me, which is why I want to surprise her with a vacation to her favorite place on earth. My wife is a huge Disney fan and has been wanting to revisit Disney World for years. I would love to surprise her with 4-day park hopper tickets to Disney World in Florida. This would be our first vacation in two years and it would mean the world to catch up on some quality time with my wife that we both so desperately need! Thank you for your consideration and thank you Vettix for giving us the opportunity to share our story.

Disney World Vacation
I'm SPC Cardenas and I recently got back from a 7 month deployment in Bulgaria. My wife was 1 month pregnant with our first baby when I left for deployment. So I missed most of the pregnancy but luckily was able to redeploy early for the birth of our baby boy. He is currently 6 weeks old. I would like to take my little family to Disney World to show my wife that she is greatly appreciated for being strong during her pregnancy without me physically being there.
