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.

Family Trip to Universal Studios, Orlando
Hello to all who are reading this. I am Justin Clement and I am due back from deployment in Spring 2020. I'm asking for 5-5 day passes to Universal Studies in Florida for my family and I when I return. I have served for 12 years, and this has been my first deployment. Back home, I have a loving wife and three beautiful children (9,7, and 6) waiting for me. My wife is the back bone of our family as she stays home to care for all of them, including our middle son who is special needs and on disability. I cannot imagine how difficult this has and will continue to be on her and the kids. I want to take them somewhere we've never been (Universal) to reward them all for staying strong and thank them for supporting me through this deployment. Thank you for your consideration and for supporting all of us service members. Thank you never feels like it's enough but all of you are appreciated!

Family Vacation to Universal Studios
My name is SGT Luis Montillas. I have been with the Connecticut Army National Guard for 12 years. I am presently deployed in Afghanistan and I am scheduled to return from my 3rd deployment (once Iraq, twice Afghanistan) early fall. My family, two children 9, 16, and wife have supported me throughout the 12 years of service and multiple deployments, but this deployment has been the hardest for them. My son who is 9 has been affected by it the most. It has been hard for him to video chat with me over the last year, because it makes him sad that I am away and can not do the things we normally do together. I would love to be able to take my family on a vacation to Florida and visit Universal Studios for 5 days, during the kids winter or spring break in 2021. This would mean the world to my family as they have always wanted to visit Universal Studios, and most importantly to my son who is a huge Transformer and Jurassic Park fan. Thank you VetTix for all you've done over the years, and for the donors for supporting us service members. Thank you for your consideration.

Disneyland Dream Vacation
My name is TSgt. Steven Wilson. I retired from the USAF in 2014 after serving for 17 years, I was deployed to Iraq, on my 4th deployment (2011) I was injured in an IED blast. I received a Purple Heart due to my TBI, I also suffer from hearing loss, back and knee pain, PTSD, migraines and memory issues. I had brain surgery in 2013 and had to cut my military career short due to ongoing symptoms from the blasts. My wife and children have supported me through all of my ups and downs since my injury, it would be nice to spend quality time with my family at the Happiest Place on Earth. I would love to take my large family to Disneyland, my children have not experienced the fun and magic of Disneyland, I would love to share that with them. I would like to request 12 three day park hopper passes so we could all go together. My children are 17, 16, 15 & 15 (twins), 14, 12, 8, 4 and nearly 3 & 3 (twins).
