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 for a family of four!
My name is Cpt. Christopher Clark. I've been in the Army for almost 13 years and I am proud to be a part of it. I will be returning from deployment (my family's first) with Montana's 495th in a few months and we would love to take a little time at Disneyland. With a six year old thrill seeking son and a four year old princess, we can't think of a better place to reconnect as a family. All signs point to one of mine and my wife's favorite places - Disneyland. I would like 3-day Disneyland tickets for a family of four post-deployment.

Disney World my family for Christmas
My name is Michael Emerick. I am a combat wounded veteran that served in Afghanistan. During my 16 month deployment I was involved in numerous firefights and sustained a traumatic brain injury after being shot in the helmet. I suffer from debilitating migraine headaches, neck and back issues, double/blurred vision and PTSD. After my deployment I decided that I didn't want to raise a family in the military. I was honorably discharged and moved to Texas to go to Universal Technical Institute. I graduated at the top of my class only to realize that I could not sustain long hours of working underneath vehicles with my back and neck issues. I am now a full time Dad taking care of our five children while my wife works to support our family. Christmas time with five children is incredibly chaotic. We love our large family, but sometimes the joy of Christmas is overshadowed by gifts. We decided we would love to take our five children to Disney World to create lasting memories rather than give them gifts. However, Disney World tickets are much more expensive than we could've imagined, especially for a family of seven.

A Trip to Disney World - 5-Day Park Hopper Passes
My name is Capt Harold “Joe” Gotwald. I am active duty Air Force and am currently deployed until January. My wife has been with me my whole Air Force journey these past 9 years. This is my first deployment and my wife is at home holding down the fort with our 3 very active kids Evie (5), Lily (3), and Jack (2). It will be our 10 year anniversary next fall and she tells me our daughters are obsessed with playing Disney Princess and my son is fanatical with all things Mickey Mouse. This deployment has been difficult for my family. It would be amazing to treat her and my three kids to a trip to Disney World this coming March to make up for all of the birthdays, holidays, appointments, play times, and tea parties I’ve missed. I am asking for 4 tickets for 5 days of Disney World magic, it would mean the world to my family. Thank you

Post Deployment Family Disney World Trip
My name is LTJG Richardson and I just returned home from deployment on USS Arleigh Burke. Overall, I have been out to sea over 300 days in the last year and a half on three different ships. My incredible wife has held down the fort on the home front, taking care of our amazing children, giving birth to #5 on her own along the way. My family has been so strong through this time and I would like to thank them with a trip to Disney World during their spring break from April 8-12. My kids are aged 8, 6, 4, 2 and 7 months. This would be a wonderful gift tot hem to show them how much I appreciate their sacrifice. I am only requesting 4 tickets, as the younger two would be free and we can get the fifth ticket on our own. Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity.

Disney World With Daddy
Hello, my name is Sergeant First Class Bruce Peltier. I have been in the Army for 15 years. My wife and I have been married for 13 years when our anniversary passes in July of 2018. I have three kids. Brayden is 10, Katelynn is 8, and Lyla is 2. Getting the support of your awesome program would be amazing for my family. I want to do this for them and be able to recognize them as well. Military spouses and families have to sacrifice a lot during deployments as well and we could not do it without them back home supporting us and holding down the Home front. My wife has been there for all five of my deployments and I could not have asked for a better team mate throughout this journey. This is the first deployment my kids can really remember leavening. It has proven to be one of the hardest for all of us. Being granted this wish would be an amazing way to show my family that I appreciate all the support they have given me. My wish is to take my family to Disney World. This would be an epic way for us to spend quality time with one another after I return from this deployment. Whether I am accepted or not, I truly appreciate what your organization does for our service members and families. Thanks to you and everyone who supports VETTIX. We appreciate everything you have done and will do in the future
