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.

Disney World - Post Deployment with my family
I am CW3 Dennis White, a member of the Indiana National Guard with the 38th Sustainment Brigade, currently serving in Kuwait in support of several operations. I have been blessed to serve my State and this great Nation for over 23 years. I am married to Angela and have three boys Shad, Jaden and Brenner as well as a sweet girl, Brayleigh. All of my kids and especially my wife, have made countless sacrifices in order for me to serve. I have missed countless anniversaries (2 back to back these past years), birthdays, and a majority of my son's Senior year in High School. I also coach sports for my hometown school, Paul Hadley Middle School, as a lay coach and have missed this years sports teams and the ability to coach and mentor young student athletes. I really want to represent them and my family well while serving and want to take my family to Disney as a thank you for their enduring sacrifices they make so that I can do the job I love. I would love to take the family to Disney World after my deployment. The past year even for the train up has been non-stop with over 8 weeks on and off of training and now this deployment. Would love to be able to spend time with my family of 6 at Disney World. We have had to table trips because of many other time demanding events and need some away time as a family. It would be a true privilege to receive this Wish of 6, 5 day Armed Forces Salute tickets in order to treat my family to a well deserved get away. Thank you for your consideration and thank you for supporting this who serve.

Disney World Park Hopper tickets
Hello, my name is Bryan Silveri and I am currently deployed over seas where I have been since the beginning of September and I am due back sometime in April. This is my 6th deployment in 13 years and this has also been the most stressful and difficult one. It has been hard on me, but it has also taken a toll on my family. My 7yr old daughter Lucy and my 5yr old son Jackson are now old enough to understand that I am gone and it will be long time. It's especially hard on my son be he is Autistic and constantly fixates/obsesses over me being gone, if I am safe, or when I will be back home. So he has been extremely repetitive lately. Aside from that, this has really been difficult for my wife, because she is managing our son alone, along with my very delightful and helpful daughter. I would like to take them to Disney World in hopes of making up for all the birthdays, holidays, dr. appts, therapy appts, and events I have missed out on. I think everyone will enjoy it and it will give my wife hope again that everything will be fine. It will also help with my son obsessing over seeing Mickey! I miss home and I miss my family and I need this to help transition us as a family again, because after all, we are all human. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Disney World Vacation
My name is SSG Ryan Bock, I recently returned from South Korea being away from my children and not seeing them for 1 year. I am recently divorced and happily remarried and now am the father to 4 wonderful children ranging in ages from 7-11 (2 Boys - 2 Girls). My family, with our conflicting schedules due to custody agreements have never been able to take all 4 of the children anywhere together nor spend holidays together. I would like the chance to take all 4 children and my wonderful wife who is currently going to school to become a doctor to Disney World. With my wife's school schedule she is unable to work currently and also a 100% Disabled Veteran after her 7 years of service. Granting this wish would be an amazing sight to see all 4 children together having the time of their life in the happiest place on earth. Thank you for your help sincerely. I will need 6 tickets total. One for each family member.

Disney World (Post deployment vacation)
My name is SGT. Kenneth Darnell. I'm currently on my first deployment. I have a beautiful blended family and we had a wonderful new addition during my deployment. My wife Catherine is currently attending school while doing an amazing job as a stay at home mother. Catherine and I have been together for just over 2 years and have 4 kids between us: Donye 12, James 10, Arriyanna 8, and the newest addition is Cameron 4 months. On the civilian side I work at a paper mill which is a 7 day a week operation in which I get very few days off and work a lot of 12-16 hour days. Due to financial reasons I have to return to work almost immediately upon my return because I used up all of my leave when I went home for the birth of my son. I would love nothing more than being able to surprise my family with what would be our first vacation as a family together. I am requesting (5) 4-day Armed Forces Salute tickets to Disney World. God Bless everyone and thanks for allowing me tell you my story!

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.
