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.

DISNEYLAND AFTER THE PANDEMIC!
My name is LS1 Jordan Creath. I am an active duty sailor who has served in the Navy for 15 years. I was on deployment in Kuwait/Iraq and got back in June. We had just moved to California last July and my wife and I wanted to take our kids to Disneyland around Halloween time. A few months after I checked into my command I was being shipped out for deployment. We didn't get to really explore California or do anything because I was always gone for training to prepare for deployment. I was never sure when I was going to come home because I just keep getting extended (thank goodness they didn't keep me out there until September like they wanted to.) It's been an emotional long journey and I just want to show my wife and kids that I appreciate them for all the sacrifices they have given over the past year and a half. I am requesting 4 Disneyland 3-Day Park Hopper tickets so I can take myself, my wife and our two children.

Disneyland Dream Vacation
My name is TSgt. Steven Wilson. I retired from the USAF in 2014 after serving for 17 years, I was deployed to Iraq, on my 4th deployment (2011) I was injured in an IED blast. I received a Purple Heart due to my TBI, I also suffer from hearing loss, back and knee pain, PTSD, migraines and memory issues. I had brain surgery in 2013 and had to cut my military career short due to ongoing symptoms from the blasts. My wife and children have supported me through all of my ups and downs since my injury, it would be nice to spend quality time with my family at the Happiest Place on Earth. I would love to take my large family to Disneyland, my children have not experienced the fun and magic of Disneyland, I would love to share that with them. I would like to request 12 three day park hopper passes so we could all go together. My children are 17, 16, 15 & 15 (twins), 14, 12, 8, 4 and nearly 3 & 3 (twins).

Disneyland Post Deployment Dream!
My name is Major Jeremy Colwell. I am an active duty Marine for the last 15 years and I am currently deployed and away from my wife and three children, ages 8,7, and 3. I am missing many important occasions while being away, such as three birthdays, anniversary, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and not to mention school events and the day to day memories being made while my children grow up. It is so hard to be away from them during these times. I would love to be able to take them to Disneyland upon my return in April to make new memories with them all again. We are HUGE Disney fans and cannot think of a better way to reconnect than with some Disney Magic! I am requesting 5 Disneyland 3 Day Park Hopper tickets so we can all go, myself, my wife and three children.

Universal Orlando (Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure)
I am a SGT with the South Carolina Army National Guard. I have been in for 12 years, and I am currently in the Middle East on my 2nd deployment. Due to train up at the NTC in California and Ft. Bliss, TX I have been away from my family since June of 2019, and I should be scheduled to be home sometime in October. When not serving my country, I am serving my community. I am a Class II Officer in South Carolina and help run a shift at a County Detention Center. So, between military and law enforcement, I am almost always away from home. I have a wonderful wife (Caroline), and we have three great children (Caitlin 11, Caleb 10, and Cooper 3). My family has always sacrificed so much of themselves for me whenever duty has called, and they have done so selflessly. They allow me to go with no remorse or regrets, only love and support! They lift me up and encourage me along my path! While all the while, they continue on with their life while I am away. My wife works full time, and still manages to take care of our house and family! My two oldest children always willingly step up to assist her, and my youngest child, through the excellent examples of his older siblings, does what he can to help around the house as well! They have grown and matured so quickly and deserve to take time to be children and enjoy themselves! I would like to take my family on a 4-day trip to Universal Orlando (Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure). I would like to request a total of 5, 4 day 2-park park-to-park tickets for Me, my wife, and our three children. If anyone deserves to be blessed with such a trip, it is my Wife and children, because when I serve, they serve, and they hardly ever get the recognition! So, I want to show them how much they are appreciated, and let that know that their sacrifices, and their love for me, all military and law personnel, and their country has not gone unnoticed. I am wanting to take them in late December because my daughter's birthday is on December 23rd. And I figured that this would be a great Birthday for her, as well as a great Christmas for her and the rest of my family. I know this cannot make up for any missed time but hope that it can help instill a memory of joy for them to remember for years to come.

Disney World Family Vacation
Hello. My father, Capt. Carl E. Jackson, is MIA from Vietnam as of June 27, 1965. We never got a body back - only a few personal belongings. We were told several different stories about what might have happened to him and will never truth from fiction. Initially, we were told he was KIA. We later found out that there was an attempt to rescue him from a POW camp in October, 1966. Dad was a Captain at the time of his Vietnam incident. I am not sure how many deployments he was sent on as I was only 10 when the incident occurred. I do know that he was away from home a lot. My father was away much of my life and aside from the trips to visit grandparents, there was only one vacation that we went on. That is one of the dearest memories that I have of him. I would like to take my husband, children (daughter, son-in-law, and son), and my grandchildren (girl, boy, and one on the way) to Disney World so that we all can have our own memories. I thank you for your consideration.
