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 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.

DISNEY WORLD FAMILY TRIP FOR IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN COMBAT VETERAN
Hello, my name is Nelson Martinez. I am a retired Marine, husband, and father of 4. I retired summer of 2018 after 22 years of service. Throughout my service, I had various combat tours and assignments, making it difficult to have a Disney World trip, much less plan it. While in the Marine Corps, I dedicated myself to accomplishing the mission first. I often put the Corps and mission first and my family second, and I could only do this through my wife, children, friends, and family's support. Both my wife and I sacrificed much to make our time in the Corps work. I deployed three times to Iraq between 2003 and 2009. I also deployed twice in support of Operation Enduring Freedom to Africa and Afghanistan in 2001-02 and again to Afghanistan in 2010. In between deployments, I was assigned to commands that trained Sailors or Marines for combat deployments or headquarters commands that planned combat deployments for various units. I also spent time at the Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Batallion in 2011. My time at Wounded Warrior Battalion was to take care of injuries I sustained in 2003 deployed to Iraq and a TBI I received in 2010 while deployed to Afghanistan. Between 2001 and 2010, I was heavily deployed and ignored many physical, mental, and emotional issues and injuries to accomplish the mission overseas. Like many veterans during that time, the mission to fight and train for combat came first. Because of that, many veterans, myself included, caused and faced issues not just for ourselves but for our families. Our families sacrificed greatly to help us accomplish our mission. Now that I have been retired for some time and our children are a little older, we can finally plan a trip to Disney World. We have never taken a "true" family vacation for the reasons described above, and we have always taken short weekend trips somewhere or made the best of our children's sports events requiring travel. This year, however, my spring break from college classes and our kids' spring break from elementary and high school line up, making it easy to plan a family trip. Our family is a total of 6. My wife and I have three boys, aged 22, 16, and 9, and our daughter, 14. I am asking for help to purchase 6 tickets for our family to Disney World for the week of March 6-11, 2023. I would greatly appreciate any help to make this dream possible for my family. This trip will be a blessing for our family's many sacrifices. I thank everyone ahead of time for helping me make this dream come true for them SEMPER FIDELIS!

My name is David Tapia, a severely wounded veteran who served in the United States Army. I was awarded a purple heart during my tour in Iraq and later honorably discharged after 4 years. I have a very supportive wife who has stuck by my side despite my severe PTSD. After years of therapy and counseling I think I can finally manage it to be able to take my four amazing daughters, Nallely 13, Anahi 7, Ximena 3 and Natalia 1 on a unforgettable trip to Disney World with the help and support from VetTix and their sponsors / donors. I thank you in advance for your consideration!

Afghanistan Wounded Vet Family Trip to Disney World
My name is Bruce Haskin. After serving for nearly 22 years, I am being medically retired related to an injury I received in a VBIED (car bomb) in Afghanistan. I am married to Mary (just celebrated 14 year anniversary), have three children, Austin (11), Katherine (9), and Samuel (7). When I left for Afghanistan in 2019, I planned to take the family to Disney when I returned in April 2020. Well, with the bomb, and then pandemic starting while I was gone, that never came to fruition. Then we moved to Ohio a few months after I returned, bought a house and immediately incurred over $20,000 in unexpected and unplanned major home repairs, and recently another $15,000 in repairs in a house flood while we were away for a few days. I have missed birthdays, anniversaries, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and more, and honestly my family and I need a reset, some true fun and relaxation. We will be forever grateful for this opportunity. I appreciate your consideration and kind donation if you choose to do so. I would like to take my family to Disney World. I have three children therefore requesting 5 tickets if that is possible. Thank you.

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.
