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.

Submit A Hero's Wish

Are you Currently Serving Military (six months prior to combat deployment, 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.

DisneyWorld Florida with my family
My name is SPC Angel Ramirez. I have a 100% disability rating because of a leg injury and PTSD. I was wounded in 2008 in Iraq and had 2 children at the time. When I got back state side my wife and daughters (were babies then) stood by me and tried to help me recover physically and mentally with no luck. I had lost friends and lost myself on the battle field. My wife stood by the hardest time of my life. I had always promised my daughters that one day we would go see the "princesses" but hard times just wouldn't let up. We were blessed with a son 5yrs ago and that pushed my children's promise back further. My two daughters are 11 (twins) and my son is 5 yrs old. If it wasn't for their love and my wife believing in me I wouldn't be in this happy place I am now. I was slowly killing myself with doubt, drinking and not taking care of myself. I was depressed. They stuck by me through my lowest and I would love to show my appreciation to them and go the Disney World and eat with the Princesses. I think it would be a blessing to look back on where we came from and open a new/better chapter in our lives. I would love for my my family of 5 to go to Florida Disney World and eat with the princess. It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Post deployment trip to Disney World + water park
My name is MSgt John de la Cruz and an active duty firefighter in the USAF. I have been in the military for 17 years and am currently on my 8th deployment and will be returning in August. I would like to take my family to Disney World when I get back. As my kids, 4 and 8, are a little older, this deployment has been particularly hard on them and I wanted to surprise them with a trip when I return. My wife is also currently finishing nursing school and will graduate in August and I hope to be back to celebrate her accomplishment and take her to Disney World. She was following me for my entire career and put her career on hold and has finally found the opportunity to follow her dreams. Our military spouses and kids are remarkable and I would love to be able to show them how much I appreciate everything they do for me.

Disneyland
Sgt Tim Ngo. I would love to take my girlfriend and her son to Disnyland. Her son loves Mickey Mouse and I would like to make his dream come true to meet Mickey. To make his world would be my Wish and dream. I suffered a TBI due to 4 grenades being thrown at my squad. I pushed a brother out of the way of the first grenade. Thus taking the blast for him blowing my helmet off. The second grenade landed 2 feet away from the left side of my head. Shattering the left side of my skull. The third grenade landed near my feet as my team leader was pulling me to safety. He pulled me out of the range of that blast. The fourth and final grenade was thrown while my squad tried to put me in the back of the Humvee. My team leader covered me from the blast. I had to have a full blood transfusion due to the amount of blood I lost that day. Once back in the states I had to learn how to do everything all over again. I also had to wear a helmet to protect my head while I waited to get my plate put in. Long term injuries are seizures and short term memory. With a low PTSD level. I also have pains on my lower back due to shrapnel and pains in my knees.

Disneyland Family Vacation - 5-day park hoppers
My name is Major Ryan White. I am currently deployed and part way through what will be a long 8 month separation. I am leaving behind my beautiful wife and two kids with a promise to make up the months of memories and moments when I return. My son is a huge Disney and Star Wars fan, and my daughter is just now warming up to the idea of a six foot tall Minnie Mouse. When I return I fully intend on taking my family on a much deserved vacation to California's Disneyland. I am asking for 3 tickets to a 5 day Disneyland adventure where my family and I can relax, recovery, and recoup some missed moments together. Thank you for all of your support and God bless.
