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.

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.

Wish: DISNEYLAND DREAM!
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.

First Disney World family vacation!!
My name is Joseph Parvin and I am a staff sergeant currently serving in the United States Marine Corps. I have been married for 6 years and we have two little girls ages 5 and 3 who have been dreaming of going to Disney World. My wish is to be able to take my family on our first real vacation when I get home from my 9-month long deployment. I would greatly appreciate being able to spend time with them after missing holidays, birthdays and my oldest daughters first day of kindergarten.

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 trip to Disney World
My name is Maj Andrew Kearl and I just returned from my ninth deployment. Between deployments and numerous TDYs I'm often away from my wife and young two children. Considering how much my family love everything Disney, I can't think of a better way to reunite with them and make up for the lost time than by enjoying a family trip to Disney World. Additionally our son has Autism so normal family trips can be difficult but given his interest for Disney (he's often on his tablet watching other people's posted videos of Disney World rides), I know this would be a trip he would love. Thank you for making this wish a reality and God Bless.

Disneyland family vacation
My name is SSG Donald Watson, I would love to surprise my family of 5 with a post deployment vacation to Disneyland. My family has supported me through every deployment, training and I want to thank them. I have been active duty for 11 years and I have deployed twice to Iraq, once to Afghanistan, once to Korea and I am currently deployed. Through these deployments and trainings I have missed many holidays and special occasions. My daughter is now 7 and I have only been present for her 2nd birthday. I would love to take this vacation in September for her birthday before my next possible deployment in late 2020.

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.
