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.

Surprise Family with Dream Disneyland Vacation!
Hi, my name is Charles, and I’m in the Air Force. My “Hero's Wish” is for Park Hopper and Genie+ passes for Disneyland and California Adventure Park. This past year has been tough on my family. My wife went through a very traumatic pregnancy and delivery with my son. Five days after his birth, I received a phone call saying I was deploying for the third time. The day I was supposed to leave the first time (it got postponed three times), my family and I had a car accident. Luckily, the kids were okay in the accident, but my wife and I still got treatment for our injuries. I still deployed when my son was a month old, and my wife was still not released to pick up more than my son’s weight (Even through the roughest times, she’s still the strongest person I know). I just returned from deployment in January, and my son Nikolaus is now 10 months old. It’s always been a dream of mine to take my kids to Disney. Especially since my 4 and 6-year-old daughters, Audrey and Gwendolyn, are obsessed with Disney (not to mention my wife is too). After everything that has happened, I would love to be able to surprise my family with a trip to Disneyland and California Adventure Park in Anaheim, California. I respectfully request help with (4) four-day park hopper passes plus services. It would be my kid's first time going, and I know it is a HUGE dream of theirs. I have missed many birthdays, firsts, and events in the past six years and would love to be able to share this memory with them. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Post Deployment Disney World Trip
Hello, my name is Jeffrey, and I am currently deployed to the Middle East. I have a 3-year-old son who loves everything Disney and an almost 9-month-old daughter, 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 simultaneously. We planned on taking the kids to Disney World for my son’s 4th birthday after I got home, but budgeting while gone and trying to plan a fun vacation for the family has been difficult. After hearing about your program, being accepted by the Hero’s Wish program would be a blessing. 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!

Post deployment and College Graduation Disney World Surprise
Hello, my name is Brian and I am currently serving in the MN Army National Guard and have served for the last 10 Years. I recently returned home from an overseas deployment where my unit was responsible for a completely new mission that had not been done before. This was my second deployment but my first one with my wife which made it harder. She struggled with some mental health issues while I was gone so I would like to be able to surprise her with a graduation trip to Disney World to show how proud I am of her for making it through this deployment. She has wanted to go to Disney World since we have been married but we have not had the money to be able to afford it. I would like 2 5-Day Park Hopper passes.

Post-deployment Broadway show Sweeney Todd
My Name is Terry. For my 10th wedding anniversary, I promised my wife we’d go somewhere amazing. We booked flights and a cruise to Alaska. 5 days before the scheduled cruise, I received noticed I had to go to a mandatory training and then would be deployed on an extended deployment. We had to cancel our anniversary trip and I had to leave her to manage our home like a rock star with 3 kids by herself. One of our children has moderately severe autism and the other two are two years old and one year old, so it’s certainly a lot of responsibility on her shoulders. Here it is, almost a year later from our cruise cancellation and my wife discovered that two of her favorite things are happening in NYC. Josh Groban is playing in Sweeney Todd on Broadway. She loves his music and Sweeney Todd is OUR favorite musical. I’d love to be able to get away with her and take her to New York City for a few days to celebrate surviving deployment and our 10th (make that 11th) Anniversary.

Tool fan
Hello, my name is Jason, I am a USMC infantry squad leader. I’m a huge fan of the band Tool and have been for 23 years. I have never gotten the chance to see them in concert and the tickets are too much for me to get one right now as I’m approaching bankruptcy. Cost of living and other financial hardships combined with the ridiculous cost of living in rural Washington. In 2009 I was deployed as a USMC infantry squad leader on my third deployment as part of the 2nd marine expeditionary battalion and the first boots on the ground in President Obamas 2009 surge to end the war. I was wounded in when my squad came under fire and were drawn into a complex ambush of machine guns and rpg fire. I died twice on my medevac and almost lost my arm and was put into a coma with multiple face and skull fractures and a degloving of my right and dominant arm. My wish is to attend the Tool concert at the Moda Center in Portland Oregon in October.
