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 (Post deployment vacation)
My name is SGT. Kenneth Darnell. I'm currently on my first deployment. I have a beautiful blended family and we had a wonderful new addition during my deployment. My wife Catherine is currently attending school while doing an amazing job as a stay at home mother. Catherine and I have been together for just over 2 years and have 4 kids between us: Donye 12, James 10, Arriyanna 8, and the newest addition is Cameron 4 months. On the civilian side I work at a paper mill which is a 7 day a week operation in which I get very few days off and work a lot of 12-16 hour days. Due to financial reasons I have to return to work almost immediately upon my return because I used up all of my leave when I went home for the birth of my son. I would love nothing more than being able to surprise my family with what would be our first vacation as a family together. I am requesting (5) 4-day Armed Forces Salute tickets to Disney World. God Bless everyone and thanks for allowing me tell you my story!

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.

Disney World Vacation for Family
My name is SSG Joseph Weghorst. I'm in the Army with 12 years of service, I'm on my 4th deployment, 3 to Iraq and 1 to Afghanistan. This deployment I am in Iraq and have been away for 5 months, prior to this I did one 15 month tour to Iraq, and 12 to Iraq and Afghanistan. I joined the Army when my kids were 5 and 3 and have spent all four of my deployments away from them. This year is my daughters senior year of High School and I have missed it, but should be home just in time for her graduation and would like to take her to Disney after graduation and before college. For block leave prior to this deployment I was suppose to take her to Disney, but my mother tested positive for breast cancer so we cancelled our Disney trip and visited my mother.
