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.

Help Fulfill a Hero's Wish

Want to help Veteran Tickets Foundation fulfill the wish of one of America's heroes? There are two ways you can help us honor these special members:

  • Make a ticket donation. Simply visit the Hero's Wish page and select a wish that you'd like to help Vet Tix fulfill.
  • Don't have tickets to donate? No problem! You can always support a hero by making a monetary donation toward the wish you select and Vet Tix will purchase the tickets.

New wishes are being submitted all the time, so we encourage you to view the hero's wish page as often as you can.

Thanks to everyone that made our Disneyland Dream a reality! We really appreciate what you do for our military families! Thank you for all your support!

Submit A Hero's Wish

Are you Currently Serving Military (six months after a deployment, or while on leave from deployment), a severely wounded Veteran (Purple Heart Required) or a family member of someone who was killed in action (KIA)?

If you are and you have not received a wish from another wish-granting organization, then you are eligible for our Hero's Wish Program! All you need to do is complete a few easy steps and Veteran Tickets Foundation will get started on making your Hero's Wish come true!

NOTE: Veteran is allowed to submit 1 (ONE) lifetime wish. If wish goes unfilled, that still counts as your one lifetime wish.

Post Deployment Disney Vacation
My name is MSgt Laura Couball. My husband and I are both active duty with five children ages 1,2,8,9 and 14. My husband is returning soon from deployment and we would love an opportunity to celebrate his return and make up for some missed memories such as our youngest son’s first birthday and holidays with tickets to Walt Disney World.

Disney World Dream Vacation
I'm a 19 year Army Veteran on my second deployment to the Middle East. During my first deployment, I had many close calls with mortar attacks and IEDs which left me with social anxiety amongst other disabilities. I know because of my mental health issues, I've limited my Family from many enjoyable experiences. I'm hoping to thank my Family of 5 with a sweet vacation when I return this summer. One place we've always dreamed of going was a 3 day hopper at Disney World. It can't make up for the many occasions I missed but the thought of being able to bond at the happiest place on earth would be a remarkable experience and hopefully open a new chapter as I near the end of my Military Career.

Disney World Experience for my Family
My name is Captain Mike Dukovic. I'm originally from Pittsburgh, PA, and currently reside outside of the city with my wife Sarah of 5 years, and our two boys, Henry and Daniel (aged 3 and 1). I am currently deployed in the middle east, and my wife Sarah has been bearing the burden of a full time job, along with caring for our two young boys. Both of our boys love all things Disney. Our oldest boy, Henry, wants desperately to visit "Mickey Mouse's House", which is what he knows as Disney World after my mother-in-law showed him pictures from a family vacation years ago. This is why I wish to be able to take my family to Disney World this November after I return from my deployment. I wish for 4 tickets to accommodate my whole family and ideally I'd like to take them for 4 days, one for each park.

Family Disneyland Parks Trip!
My husband and I would love to be able to surprise our 3 girls (Kaidence 13, Makayla 11, and Hailey 5) with a 4 day Park Hopper +Genie Service At the DisneyLand Park in Anaheim California (we would need 5 tickets since we are a family of 5!) This deployment has been tough since I have been away through every family members' birthday and all the major holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas time frame). I have missed many milestones (including my youngest losing her first teeth!) and events that I normally would be front and center. I would love nothing more than to come home and be able to take a vacation to California to see some of our family and add Disney in our plans! We would love the opportunity to be able to stay at one of the DisneyLand Resort hotels to capture the full experience of the Happiest place on earth!!

Post Deployment Disneyland 4 Day, Park Hopper Passes with Genie+
My name is Sheldon Albee. I'm currently deployed for a 3rd time in the 10 years I've been active duty in the Air Force. I have a loving wife named Jade and together have two beautiful boys Maverick (4) and Baylor (2). I have missed both of my children’s birthdays along with the holidays this year. My hope is to enjoy a family vacation together when I return home from this deployment. This is my first deployment with a wife and a 2 and 4 year old at home. The last 7 months without our family together has been very hard on us. I have missed every holiday since October, both of our children's birthdays and we would love to make up for it by going on a Disney trip! We haven't been on a family vacation since we have had kids and would love to finally go on one! We have never been to California! Disneyland would absolutely be a dream come true! None of us have ever been to Disney before so were really excited to hopefully be able to go!
