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.

Louder Than Life Concert Weekend
My name is SSG Tanner Kuth. I would love to attend the Louder than life music festival in September 28-30 with my fiance and my kids. We would be driving up from Georgia and camping for the event. I was injured in an IED blast in Afghanistan in 2009 breaking my neck, back, butt, and both feet and legs. Ultimately I lost my left leg below the knee and went 70% blind in my right eye.

ARIZONA CARDINALS NFL Game
My name is MCPO George Arredondo and I am in the Navy Reserves and will be deploying to Afghanistan making this my 2nd tour plus the one in Iraq. As I am soon to start my third journey to the Middle East I would like to take my wife and two family members with me to enjoy a home game with the Arizona Cardinals before I depart, as the NFL season begins. I look forward to the football season which is my favorite past-time. I enjoy spending time with family and friends in any opportunity I can to watch a good football game with them. This year will be different since I will be missing most of the season due to my military workup training requirements, travel to my area of operations, and the challenges that may bring. By the time I return a whole new football season will be in play. As I begin to focus on my upcoming mission I would like this opportunity to see a home game with my wife and family. I don’t know what the future holds but I’ll embrace what comes with it.

First Disney World family vacation!!
My name is Joseph Parvin and I am a staff sergeant currently serving in the United States Marine Corps. I have been married for 6 years and we have two little girls ages 5 and 3 who have been dreaming of going to Disney World.

Post deployment trip to Disney World
My name is MSgt John de la Cruz and an active duty firefighter in the USAF. I have been in the military for 17 years and am currently on my 8th deployment and will be returning in August. I would like to take my family to Disney World when I get back. As my kids, 4 and 8, are a little older, this deployment has been particularly hard on them and I wanted to surprise them with a trip when I return. My wife is also currently finishing nursing school and will graduate in August and I hope to be back to celebrate her accomplishment and take her to Disney World. She was following me for my entire career and put her career on hold and has finally found the opportunity to follow her dreams. Our military spouses and kids are remarkable and I would love to be able to show them how much I appreciate everything they do for me.

Universal Orlando tickets
My name is Cpl. Joshua McCart. While on my 2nd deployment with the 82nd Airborne (1/325) the truck I was in was hit by an IED( Feb.2007). This blast resulted in loss of hearing, multiple shrapnel wounds and the loss of my right hand. Like most people experiencing severe combat wounds I have been through many surgeries and even more mental and emotional struggles. I have been married for 12 years this year and have a 17 year old and 7 year old son. We would like to go to Universal Studios this October because it is a place that has something for every age. My 17 year old graduated this month and will start college soon. I would also like to take my mother in law who has been by our side every step of our journey. She has traveled when needed and watched the kids and dogs for every surgery or issue we have had during my recovery. Not to mention she has been an invaluable support for my wife so that my wife could in turn be supportive to me.

Post Deployment Disney World Trip!
Hi, My name is Andrew Baker and I am currently serving in the Air Force. I left my family to go to Afghanistan for 6 months and would really love to reward them by taking them on a Disney World vacation after having to adjust and live life while I was gone. My wife fostered two other children along with having our three while I was gone and I would love to be able to take her on the vacation of her dreams. After being gone for such time I feel this would be the perfect getaway to bond again with my family and have some much needed rest. Thank you for your consideration in helping me give my family their dream.
