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 (six months prior to, while on leave from or 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: Our 1st Family Trip (Post Deployment)
My name is 1SG Delarna, I have served 19 years in the Army and I am currently on my 7th deployment in Kuwait. I did 3 tours to Iraq, 2 to Afghanistan, 1 to Haiti and 1 to Kuwait. Being a Combat Engineer my job is risky. Three of my deployments were just searching for IED’s & doing rock clearance. Along with myself, my family has made many sacrifices throughout the years. After returning home this summer, I would like to thank them by taking our first family vacation together. My wife & I have been married for six years and have yet to have a honeymoon. Life just seems to fly by when you’re being deployed or pcsing every 2-3 years. We have a blended family with seven children(19, 16, 14, 13, 12, 7 & 2 mts) with our newest being born during this deployment. Thankfully, I was given one week leave and made it home the day before his arrival. Due to health reasons he experienced extended hospital stays, for that he has yet to meet his three older siblings. Our son doesn’t even know it yet but he has brought our blended family even closer! Seeing all seven smiling faces together for the first time will be a moment to cherish a lifetime! We are a family of 9 but will need 8 tickets. We do understand that it is highly unlikely our wish will be fully granted. We’re hoping at the least, we are blessed with some of the tickets to help offset the cost. Our one wish for our family is to take our first family trip to the happiest place on earth, Disney World!!!

Disney World
Hello I am SSG Tabbitha Dixon and I am currently serving on my second deployment in 3 years. My first deployment was in 2015 in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. This deployment is in support of Operation Inherent Resolve. Last few years I have been busy preparing for deployment and adjusting back to my normal life upon returning. I would love to take my family to Disney World before jumping back into my busy work life.

Hamilton in Baltimore, MD
My name is LCDR Hugh Wilson. In December 2017 I returned from a reserve mobilization and six month deployment to Iraq. The deployment was a rewarding experience, but was somewhat unexpected and followed 14 months of working the night shift as a warehouse manager. During the deployment, my wife (a former Army Officer and Afghanistan veteran) was pregnant with our second daughter (she was born 3 days after I returned), raising our 2 year old and working full time. She never complained once throughout my deployment and was an amazing partner to me and mother to our girls. I would like to do something special for her to show my appreciation for the outstanding support and care she provided to our daughters and I while I was deployed. I would like to request two ticket for my wife and I to attend Hamilton when the touring production comes to Baltimore, MD.

Hamilton for my family
My name is Donny Daughenbaugh, I am a medically retired OIF-II Marine. I was an 0311 and enjoyed being a rifleman and during my short time in Iraq I believe I helped make a difference. One night, 7 weeks into my deployment I was searching a car when the driver shot me in the face. The bullet broke my jaw, and stayed too close to my spinal cord and my brain to be removed. I'm now 12 years post injury and have developed a headache disorder, a small seizure issue and chronic nerve damage from the course of the bullet. I was given a purple heart in Bethesda and used my injury and my ongoing recovery to help me as an advocate for other wounded veterans. My family is very involved in helping to advocate for the needs of wounded veterans and their families. I have a wife, 13 year old daughter, 8 yr old son and a baby on the way! My wife and daughter are big fans of the Hamilton Broadway show. I'd like to add the difficulty in getting these tickets with the possibility of VetTix making it happen to equal an amazing once in a lifetime opportunity for my family.
