Disney World

Dec 1st 2019

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.

(6) Disney World 4 Day Park Hopper Tickets

Oct 30th 2019

Hello My name is Petty Officer Brandon Moore. I am currently serving Active Duty with the United States Coast Guard and have been for the last 11 Years. My Wife and I have 4 beautiful Children together. I have been deployed 12 months out of the last 24 months. It is hard explaining to my little ones that I am going to be gone for a while. I have missed countless Holidays, Birthdays, and most of all my kids growing up. My wish is to take my wife and 3 kids to Disney World in hopes that I can recreate some missed memories! Thanks in advance!

Louder Than Life Concert Weekend

My name is SSG Tanner Kuth. I would love to attend the Louder than life music festival in September 28-30 with my fiance and my kids. We would be driving up from Georgia and camping for the event. I was injured in an IED blast in Afghanistan in 2009 breaking my neck, back, butt, and both feet and legs. Ultimately I lost my left leg below the knee and went 70% blind in my right eye.

4 Day Park Hopper Disneyland Tickets for family of 6

Aug 1st 2019

Hi everyone! My name is MSgt Angel Palacios and I am currently deployed overseas. I am a firefighter in the Air Force Reserve as well as for the county in which I live. I was recently activated and deployed overseas for 9+ months. My wife Candice is a first grade teacher who works tirelessly to ensure that the needs of her students are met all the while caring for our two children, Brielle (9) and Brayden (11) and maintaining our household. My wife's parents have also shown true dedication and tremendous support for our family during this deployment by taking care of our kids before and after school while my wife is teaching. I would love to surprise my family with 4-day park hopper tickets to Disneyland when I return. Can you help me show my gratitude to my family for their amazing support by taking them on a post-deployment Disney vacation? I am requesting 6 tickets so that I may surprise my wife, her parents, and our 2 children with a trip to Disneyland when I return from deployment later this year. Like many deployed service members I have missed birthdays, holidays, and anniversaries this year and I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to reconnect with my family through this vacation to "The Happiest Place on Earth"! Thank you for your help in making my families dreams come true!

(4) 5-Day Disney World Park Hopper Vacation

Jul 28th 2019

My name is GySgt Christopher Greene. I recently returned from my 7th deployment and want to be able to make my little girls dream a reality and take them to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. My daughters have been asking to go for several years now, but we have yet to make it due to either the cost or timing due to military deployments. We are requesting (4) 5-Day Disney Park Hopper tickets to help offset the cost of our vacation sometime this summer. This would mean the world to my wife and daughters and I would love to be able to give them the vacation they have been asking for and be able to make some great family memories together. Thank you and God bless!

Yankees vs. Red Sox Tickets

Jul 26th 2019

My name is PO2 Ashley Montalvo. I am just getting home from my 3rd Deployment in the past 4 years. For my 31st birthday, the Red Sox are hosting the New York Yankees and nothing would mean more to me for my birthday than to attend the game with my girlfriend in the Green Monsta! To compound the fun/rivalry action, I am a HUGE Red Sox fan and my girlfriend is a Yankees fan, always a point of contention for us, but the love of baseball and each other always wins out in the end.

Post Deployment Disney World Trip - 4-Day Park Hopper Pass

Jul 26th 2019

Hello, my name is SGT Michael Barton! I JUST got home from a 9 month deployment in Afghanistan. I would LOVE to surprise my family with a trip to Disney World! My beautiful wife has given so much to help me and my career and did amazing while I was away. Our son is 7 and the perfect age to go to Disney and truly enjoy the magic. My son really struggled this deployment and he would absolutely love Disney World. None of us have ever been to Disney World and we actually didn't get to have a honeymoon because we had to immediately PCS and then I had to deploy. I hope to give my family a real vacation with lots of magic and wonder. I am so grateful to be home again with my family and I would love to give them this trip and make some once in a lifetime memories.

Post Deployment Disney World Trip

Jul 22nd 2019

My name is TSgt Badri Francis and I am currently deployed outside of the US. I am a Contracting Officer for the United States Air Force and have been serving for the past seven years. During this deployment I have missed two of my kids birthdays and my anniversary with my wife. I really want to be able to do something truly special with them after I return from this deployment. This is my second deployment in as many years, with a PCS and having a house built in between the two it has not allowed for a lot of quality family time. My wish is to have 5 4-day Disney World Park Hopper tickets (for my wife, three kids, and myself) so that we can enjoy this time together before the children return to school. Thank you all in advance for helping me provide this amazing opportunity to my family.

Disney World family vacation in Orlando, Florida

Jul 21st 2019

My name is SSG Jason Gordon, I have been away from my family for almost 12 months now. This is my third deployment and the first that I have had children to leave behind. It has been tough on them and I would like to take them somewhere special this summer to help the transition with me being home. I think being able to take my family to Disney in Orlando, Florida would be a great family environment to get to know my kids again. My son is 4 and my daughter is 5 and they don’t really understand why I am gone. I wish for this experience to spend with my family.

Family Disney World Trip

Jul 15th 2019

Hello, I'm MSgt Gregory Plumley. I just returned from my 2nd deployment to Iraq as an air traffic controller. We had a good deployment, I met some great people and learned a lot... Before I deployed my wife who is also AD was deployed to Ukraine and did not make it back before I left. We have spent quite a bit of time apart this past year. We have been married for almost 11 years and have 3 sons: Gage (8), Foster (5), and Thatcher (4). The boys did a great job holding down the fort with Honey (their Grandma) while we were gone which is why we would love to surprise them with a trip to Disney. Our wish is for a family trip to Disney World! We would love to have the opportunity for a stress free vacation to Disney World and stay at Shades of Green Resort. We would need 5 tickets as we have three boys! They are at the perfect age for us to all enjoy and remember this trip forever.

She has twice had tickets to this concert and both times had the tours cancelled due weather. I would love to be able to surprise her with tickets to Aerosmith at MGM in Las Vegas in June 2019. She has been the rock and constant for our family and has filled the role of mother and father flawlessly to my two children, 5 and 3. I thank you for this opportunity.

Hamilton at the Kentucky Center in Louisville KY

My name is Technical Sergeant Bradley Clott. I have served in the Air Force for over 8 years and I will be returning home soon from my 2nd deployment. I would love to take my wife Holly to see Hamilton. My wish is for 2 tickets to see Hamilton at the Kentucky Center in Louisville KY. Show runs June 4 2019 - June 23 2019. Any date would work, weekends are preferred due to child care. She is so deserving of a wonderful night out after single handedly raising our daughter, taking care of the house and caring for our beloved dog Lucky on her own these past six months. This would be a nice event after missing most of the Holidays. Thank you!.

To the 4 donors; your generosity is fabulous. I could not thank you enough. Looking at the cost to buy one ticket was huge so I SOOOO appreciate the love and generosity that was showed to my family.

Post-deployment Disney World Park Hopper Plus for a dream come true family vacation

May 16th 2019

My name is CWO3 Damien Wieland. I am currently on my 11th deployment in the Navy where I have proudly served for almost 20 years. Despite only one shore duty thus far, I maintain that the Navy has been fantastic for my family which is why we continue to serve while sacrificing precious family time in the name of freedom. Through years of service, multiple deployments and a number of extended TDY’s my incredible family has missed my presence during countless birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas’ and other meaningful events. My wife has sacrificed the most yet continues to be the lighthouse this Sailor depends on. With multiple PCS moves and a complete lack of stability I consider myself both blessed and fortunate to have a loving and understanding support system at home; we are all proud patriots of this great country. That said, it would be amazing to be able to put huge smiles on my families faces with a dream come true vacation to Disney World. Disney holds a special place in my kids’ life as, when home, we sit down as a family for Disney movie nights when able and the memories from a once in a lifetime vacation to Disney World would be the icing on the cake to them. I would personally be ecstatic to share that the kind people of the world recognized their sacrifices and wanted them to have a dream come true vacation to spend time with mommy, daddy, and all of their Disney heroes. Thank you so much in advance for kindness and consideration to this loving and appreciative family. We are all proud to serve and will continue to do so for many more years to come!

Thank You Message From Hero:
A dream come true family vacation is the exact way I would describe our trip. Thank you Vet Tix and the Hero's Wish coordinators for all the work that goes into this amazing program and opportunity. As a service member who will hit 20 years of service this August I have nothing but gratitude for what the military has done for myself and the life my family and I are afforded. The time away from the family is truly the only hard part of serving and it was incredible to be gifted these lifelong memories. My kids, five and seven years old, had the time of their lives. Above all else, they were most excited to be at Disney World as a family. The memories will surely last a lifetime. My son and I have spent hours sword fighting (souvenirs he chose), my daughter and I made secret hand shakes while waiting for rides and my wife (who as a military spouse, the hardest job of all) was able to take off a few of her hats, unwind and relax while just being a mother. We enjoyed our time together so much and are forever grateful to have been given this experience. A special thank you to Madeline and Raymond, our angel donors, whose selflessly generous donations will never be forgotten. On behalf of my family, thank you!
 
Attending Chelsea Soccer Match at Gillette Stadium

May 15th 2019

My name is MSgt Ashley Shatkus, My husband and I were both deployed last year, while our 3 kids were watched over by my mom. My two older children are big soccer players and our family are huge supporters of the Chelsea soccer team. We learned that they will be playing a match at Gillette Stadium this May, and I would LOVE to be able to take my kids to watch their favorite team compete, as the likelihood of us making it to England as a family of 5 is pretty slim. I would love to get them as close to the action as possible to their favorite team and being able to create this memory with them will be something to cherish. With us being away for a little over 6 months, I feel we have so many memories to catch up on.

Post Deployment Family Disney World Trip

Apr 8th 2019

My name is LTJG Richardson and I just returned home from deployment on USS Arleigh Burke. Overall, I have been out to sea over 300 days in the last year and a half on three different ships. My incredible wife has held down the fort on the home front, taking care of our amazing children, giving birth to #5 on her own along the way. My family has been so strong through this time and I would like to thank them with a trip to Disney World during their spring break from April 8-12. My kids are aged 8, 6, 4, 2 and 7 months. This would be a wonderful gift tot hem to show them how much I appreciate their sacrifice. I am only requesting 4 tickets, as the younger two would be free and we can get the fifth ticket on our own. Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity.

Thank you to all those who came together to provide this amazing, generous gift to my family. We had a wonderful four days at Disney World. We got to defeat the Evil Zurg, fight Darth Vader after training with a Jedi master, dance with Belle (my wife Jenn is my Belle) and ride on a lot of fun rides. I loved taking my older kids on the big roller coasters and seeing their faces of fear and excitement all at once. It was a lot of work taking five kids on vacation, but we will look back on this with fond memories. I have had to be away from my family a significant amount of time the last few years and there have been many challenges. I have missed countless milestones, holidays and birthdays. My wife has given birth to our last two children without me. This trip was a fabulous way for us to celebrate daddy finally being home.
 
Disneyland for a family of four!

Apr 2nd 2019

My name is Cpt. Christopher Clark. I've been in the Army for almost 13 years and I am proud to be a part of it. I will be returning from deployment (my family's first) with Montana's 495th in a few months and we would love to take a little time at Disneyland. With a six year old thrill seeking son and a four year old princess, we can't think of a better place to reconnect as a family. All signs point to one of mine and my wife's favorite places - Disneyland. I would like 3-day Disneyland tickets for a family of four post-deployment.
