Disney World surprise trip for the family

Dec 17th 2022

My name is SRA Jordan Mccants. I currently on a 6 month deployment. This will be my third holiday season that I have been in training, TDY, or deployed. My two boys, 10 and 4, have been along to go to Disney and this would be the best present for my wife and boys. Christmas is my family’s favorite holiday without me there for the past two years and now this one, it’s been hard on them. I want to make this homecoming extra special.

Family Trip to Disney World

Nov 9th 2022

Hello, my name is SFC Jeremy Clinton and I have been serving in the Army Reserves for the last 19 years and am currently on my 4th deployment to the Middle East. I expect to be home in spring 2022. Previously I served two tours in Iraq (2007-2008 and 2009-2010) and one tour in Afghanistan (most of 2015). My wife and I met in 2006, wed in 2013 and are blessed to share two beautiful daughters, ages 7 and 4. On the civilian side I am a local police officer for the past 9 years (7 if you don’t count the time I’ve spent deployed). I’m not normally one to ask for help, but after speaking with my wife, I decided to do so. Growing up, my family lived paycheck-to-paycheck and never took vacations because quite frankly, my parents didn’t have the money for such. Sometimes the electric got turned off or the water turned off for a week or two at a time. Just as any father does, I hope to be able to do more for my children and my wife than my parents were able to do for me and my 5 siblings. I have worked tirelessly for most of my life. I gained my first job two weeks prior to turning 14 at a fast food restaurant and have been employed ever since, only ever having worked a total of 3 jobs. This is in addition to my military service, which I enlisted at 17 years old while I was a junior in high school with my parents’ written consent. The military hasn’t always been easy and has slowed things for me on the civilian side at times due to multiple deployments. After graduating high school, I enrolled in community college in 2005 and began studying criminal justice. I was a fulltime student while working fulltime. Due to my back-to-back deployments to Iraq, it took me 6 years to earn a 2-year degree (Associates). I was able to get hired as a police officer 14 months later. From my short story, you can see my wife has been by my side from almost the beginning. She is truly an amazing woman that I believe only other veterans’ spouses can fully understand extent of the hardships and sacrifices she too has made in support of me, our family, community and country. I am extremely fortunate to have such a dedicated wife, terrific mother and strong role model for my children. With all of that said, my wife and I are in the process of planning a trip to Disney World in Orlando, FL. My wife went there as a child and it’ll be a first for my daughters and I. Due to their ages, we had hoped to take them last year (2020) but due to the COVID pandemic, that wasn’t possible and then this year (2021), I deployed again. So we are planning for an October/November 2022 timeframe, when Halloween or Christmas décor and activities are happening. My wife and I both feel we have to get our daughters to Disney World in 2022 due to their ages so they can experience “the magic” we’ve heard others talk about before it’s too late and that magic diminishes. We live in the northeast and so we are planning to fly to Orlando, or drive, depending on how the finances workout. All together, we are hoping our vacation can last 7 days with the budget we have. To alleviate some stress and make room in our budget, I am humbly requesting assistance with acquiring tickets to the Disney World parks. My wife and I would like to take our daughters to Magic Kingdom. Again, I don’t normally ask others for help but I’m swallowing my pride at this time in hopes that I can give my family the much needed vacation they both need and deserve without sacrificing the experiences due to financial constraints. This is really about them, not me. Any assistance is better than nothing so thank you for your time.

Family vacation to Disney World

Nov 1st 2022

My name is Semeli Toilolo and I am 41 years old. I was born and raised in American Samoa in the village of Vailoa (vuh-ee-lo-ah). I met my high school sweetheart, Margaret Toilolo and we got married in 1998. We have 4 boys and one girl, one grandson and another grandchild on the way. I joined the U.S Army in 2000 as an Infantryman and I was medically retired in 2015. I am a Army Veteran who served for 15 years. Four of those years and three months was the time I deployed away from my family to Iraq. We are now settled in Texas, and my two older boys are now serving in the Army, one stationing in Ft. Lewis and the other in Fort Bragg. I am a stay at home dad and grandpa, trying to make up for the times I have lost with my family. In 2007, when we were stationed in Fort Lewis, Wa, I was deployed with to Iraq with 4-9 Infantry, 2nd Infantry Division to Baquoba, Dyala Province. In one of our dismounted patrols in a crowded market street, a female suicide bomber walked in our formation and blew herself up, and wounded my whole squad, including myself. We were air MEDEVAC out to the nearest CASH in another base in Iraq called LSA Anaconda. They were able to operate and take some of the shrapnel out but left some inside my arm. I was then doing physical therapy and recovery and 6 months later I was deployed with the 1st CAV Division 1-8 CAV, 2nd Brigade, to Iraq 2009-2009, and 2011-2011. In 2014, I was diagnosed with severe PTSD and the ARMY Medboarded me out, after 25 years of service. I had been through several inpatient treatments for PTSD like PRRP, and also had been involved in small groups and wounded warrior peer support group. My injuries are both physical and mental, and it is affecting my family. My kids don’t even come to me and they only call and text their mom. I feel as if I am the bad guy in our house and nobody seems to understand me. So we are taking it one day at a time, trying to keep everything together. So I enrolled online to take some courses and I have been reading my Bible, trying to stay close to God and I meditate through prayer. I feel that is helping me to change my way of thinking and take away anxiety and depression. My plan for the future is to stay healthy and be a counselor for those veterans who are going through the same problem as me. I also plan to graduate from GCU with a BA in Christian Studies, which I am currently taking. Right now, my mother-in-law, she is 76 years old is staying with us, we are taking care of her, and my daughter and her son, my two boys and my little dog. My oldest son is deployed to Iraq. My wife doesn’t work, she is my caregiver. I also plan to graduate with my BA in Christian Studies from GCU online and use that degree to help someone battling PTSD or similar, despite if they are veterans or civilians. We have always wanted to go to Disney World but financially we can’t. If this wish comes true this will be our first family outing vacation ever. I think it would help me to get out of the house and reconnect with my family in that way. It would be a dream come true especially for my kids, but a healing therapeutic retreat for me and my wife as well. Thank you and God bless.

A family rivalry - COWBOYS VS EAGLES with the In-Laws

Oct 16th 2022

I’m a cowboys fan, along with our oldest son. My wife, daughter and in-laws are Eagles fans! Our youngest goes back and forth saying go Cowboys or go Eagles. My wife and in-laws are going to Philadelphia the weekend the Cowboys play the Eagles. It just so happens the game is on October 16th. The same day I stepped on a landmine in Afghanistan in 2010. My wish would be to go to the game with my family and enjoy it on my alive day. I know as a Cowboys fan walking into the Linc would be hostile territory but to experience this with my family on a day like that would really just make me happy. Also, being limb salvage for 12 years has taken its toll on my foot. I still have an open wound and am in the process of figuring out logistics to get a below the knee amputation. I go to BAMC to talk about surgery in August 2022. I most likely would have it after the game.

My name is SMSgt Jason Walker and I have served in the Air Force for 27 years and counting. I recently got back from a deployment in Afghanistan. I have been deployed all across the world from South Korea, Djibouti, Iraq, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Germany, and many more. My deployments have always put a great deal of stress on my wife, Gretchen, and two daughters, Simone and Saffron (18 & 12) and I haven’t been able to show them my appreciation for all they have done back here at home. I am hoping to take them on a much needed trip this summer to Disney World in Florida for some family time and a stress reliever. We’ve never taken a family vacation and this trip would mean the world to my family and I. Thank you for your consideration and God bless.

Disneyland with family

Sep 28th 2022

Hi! My name is Technical Sergeant Teddrick Thibodeaux, Aircrew Flight Equipment Specialist. I entered the United States Air Force in 2011 and currently stationed overseas. I am currently on my 2nd deployment to a specialized base in an Afghanistan province. I have been deployed for 3 months now, working 14-hour days, no downtime and constantly on the move to sustain aircrew equipment by ensuring safety measures are in place for the individuals that fly those aircrafts, it’s a bittersweet feeling to know that I directly affect the mission and save lives daily. This deployment in particular has put a great deal of stress on my family. I am the father of two beautiful kids (Lilah (8) and Teddrick Jr (4)) and husband to my amazing wife Daisha. I want to let my wife and kids know how much I appreciate them for their sacrifices, tremendous support and love I have received from them. Every day that I’m not with them, it brings a sense of sadness that I’m missing their smiles, excitement from coming home from school, chances to watch little league and much more. I want to extend my gratitude to my family with this trip, not just for missing family time due to these deployments but for the last 12 years. I am requesting four, 4-day park hopper tickets to Disneyland, in California. This will be our 1st family vacation in 4 years. What we have been through as a family, it is very much needed! I want to personally thank Vettix and all the contributors in advance for making my kids dream come true! God Bless America!

DISNEYLAND WITH MY FAMILY

Aug 8th 2022

My name is SSgt Antonio Antunez. I retired from the USAF in 2020 after serving for 14 years, I was deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, on my 1st deployment to Iraq in 2007 and my squad was ambushed by small arms fire and I was wounded in an IED blast. I received a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star with Valor for the injuries that I sustained and for saving the life of our interpreter by rushing inside the burning HUMVEE and getting him out to safety while engaging the enemy under fire, I was awarded a BSM with Valor. I suffer from multiple medical issues due to my injuries during my five deployments in the service. I was medically retired in 2020 after I couldn’t keep up with all of my injuries and decided to actually take care of myself, the USAF medical team told me that I couldn’t keep hiding all my injuries and that it was time to heal and that has been and will be a long journey for me and my family. My daughter and my fiancé have supported me through all of my journey it’s hard on them, but I can find love and support in them every time. After I was medically retired COVID hit and we have not been able to have a vacation, first was my Medical Evaluation Board and that was very stressful and then COVID made it even worse for my family and I. It would be an incredible experience to visit Disneyland with my family. I would like to request 3 five-day park hopper passes, to take my family this will start a journey to heal physical and mentally injuries and it would be a great to experience that with my family who has always been there for me, thank you.

Luke Combs Buckeye Country Superfest

Jul 23rd 2022

My name is Joe Miller I joined the military in 2006 served six years in the Army as an infantryman. I joined the military because I was young and had a baby on the way and I had no idea how I was going to provide. I wasn’t all too patriotic then, but uncle Sam and I are best friends now. We play golf on the weekends haha! I was wounded in combat and I’m a Purple Heart recipient I lost the hearing in my left ear and a lot of hearing in my right ear I took shrapnel on my legs. I’m grateful to still have my limbs and eyesight. Last Year I made a promise to my wife that I would get her and the kids tickets to see her favorite artist in the world Luke Combs in Columbus on July 23, 2022. I promised I would get her close to the stage and recently I looked at the prices and I had knots in my stomach. We’ve never been to a concert before and I didn’t know how expensive it was. My wife has been my rock. She took care of me at my worst times and she took care of me at my best times. She is a mother to my kids and I couldn’t have asked for a better person in my life. She works so hard at everything she does and never does anything for herself. Knowing I can’t afford these tickets hurts my heart and I know that she’ll completely understand but I would still love to surprise her. This would be the best dream come true for me, and her. The kids will love it too. I have never asked anyone for anything but if there’s a chance I can help her wish come true (which is my wish) I'm going to try whatever I can. I’m a very humble person and very grateful. I’m grateful for what I have and I never complain about the things I don’t have. Thank you for reading this.

On behalf of my family and myself, I would just like to thank everyone donor that helped make this trip possible for us. It truly was such a special experience for all of us. I don’t think I have seen so many smiles, so many days in a row, than those three days we spent at the Disneyland parks. We enjoyed every second of it. Again, thank you to Vettix organization and to all of the donors who helped make this possible for us. Alex Minsky
 
DISNEYLAND AFTER THE PANDEMIC!

Jul 18th 2022

My name is LS1 Jordan Creath. I am an active duty sailor who has served in the Navy for 15 years. I was on deployment in Kuwait/Iraq and got back in June. We had just moved to California last July and my wife and I wanted to take our kids to Disneyland around Halloween time. A few months after I checked into my command I was being shipped out for deployment. We didn't get to really explore California or do anything because I was always gone for training to prepare for deployment. I was never sure when I was going to come home because I just keep getting extended (thank goodness they didn't keep me out there until September like they wanted to.) It's been an emotional long journey and I just want to show my wife and kids that I appreciate them for all the sacrifices they have given over the past year and a half. I am requesting 4 Disneyland 3-Day Park Hopper tickets so I can take myself, my wife and our two children.

Universal Orlando 3 Park - park to park passes

Jul 15th 2022

My name is SGT Dozier, Cristian. I am currently on back to back deployments. It has been extremely hard for my family. Missing important dates and holidays. I want to give my family a vacation they deserve. After supporting me through these two deployments and the effects it has taken on my life, from severe PTSD to several mental health problems, they have been there for me and never waivered. They're very deserving of this trip and I would love to provide that experience for them.

This wish meant the world to my family, it provided us the opportunity to catch up on so much time we lost during the deployment. We had a blast visiting the parks and created new memories that our family will cherish for a very long time. My daughter is a huge Harry Potter Fan and watching her enjoy the attractions and shows definitely made the end of her summer break the unforgettable. Thank you to the donors for your donations you have made a great impact on our lives for years to come. We are so grateful. Thank you again.
 
A Disney World Honeymoon

Jul 1st 2022

My wife and I had originally planned for a big wedding, but when COVID hit in 2020 life threw a curveball at us. We tied the knot at an intimate ceremony at the end of May 2021, and by June of 2021 I was deployed to Japan. We did not have time to have a honeymoon and now we are in the middle of a PCS to Florida. My wish is to surprise my wife with a honeymoon to Disney World in Orlando, Florida. I'd love to pamper her and stay at the Disney World Resort and spend at least a weekend (3 days) at the parks, but I know she and I would appreciate any help we can get. Thank you to all the generous donors who have given endless support to all of our brothers and sisters in the armed forces.

Legoland for my family

My name is Sgt Jesse Jackson. I met my wife in Fallon, Nevada. We both had a child from our previous marriage and we have one together. We've been married now for 8 years and our boys are growing like crazy. Through most of my surgeries my wife and kids have been there for me while I recovered and I want to show the my appreciation by taking them to Legoland since all 3 of our boys love building with legos and using their imagination. I would need 5 tickets for me, my wife, and our 3 boys.

Hello, my name is Jason Moore. My wife and I have been active duty for almost 6 years, I’m currently on a short notice deployment. We have 4 kids (4,6,8,10) and have taken a few deployments between the two of us in the last 4 years. These last two Covid years have made it hard on the kids as well.

Disney World Park Hopper for family of 4

Jun 5th 2022

My name is Staff Sergeant Breno Radici. I am currenntly in the Army where I have been serving a total of 20 years with 17 of those being active duty. I started my military journey with the Marine Corps where I served for 11 years before transitioning to the Army with who I am currently deployed. During my time in service, I have been deployed all over the world, from Kuwait, Iraq, Bahrain to Japan, South Korea and Spain. During this time, my wife has held the fort down and raised our two awesome boys (Michael 17 and Tyler 15). This year, Michael will be graduating high school and shipping off to Marine Corps boot camp in the fall. I have always wanted to take my family on a vacation to Disney World. I feel it would be a great show of appreciation to them for sticking by my side and making all the sacrifices they have made during the past 20 years. I would like to make this trip this summer upon returning from this deployment and before my son departs for boot camp. Thank you for your consideration of this wish and have a blessed day.

Wow, what can I say about this dream trip that was fulfilled by Vettix and the amazing donors! To say it was a dream vacation or a trip of a lifetime is an understatement. It was magical, simply put!

Disneyland park hopper passes for family

Apr 19th 2022

Hello, I would like to take my wife and two daughters to Disneyland. I just recently returned home from my 3rd deployment, and unfortunately I missed my both of my daughter’s births and every birthdays since due to deployments/training. I would like to take my 5 year old to Disneyland and visit the bippity boppity boutique while enjoying what Disneyland/California adventure has to offer. It would mean a great deal to my daughter as she is the class 5 year old that is obsessed with Disney. My wife and I are high school sweethearts and she has sacrificed so much for us to live this lifestyle. She has wanted to take our daughter for years but due to COVID/ cost issues it hasn’t been possible. We are hoping now it is

Disney World with my family

Mar 21st 2022

My name is SFC Michael Fearing with 22 years of service and being a military dependent I have always dreamed of going somewhere great like Disney World. I know how hard it is to be a dependent myself and know first hand how hard it is to have your father away during a deployment and then try to reconnect. As my deployment is soon coming to an end in Saudi Arabia and now Kuwait I realize it is much harder to be deployed with a family vs my deployments as a single Soldier. I would love to take my family to Disney World and ask you to help us all reconnect as a family.

4 day park hopper ticket to Disneyland/CA Adventure

Mar 15th 2022

I have been in the Navy for 23 years, and over the last 5 I have been mostly separated from my family. I moved overseas for a 2 year unaccompanied tour, before returning home and experiencing extended deployments due to the COVID environment that we now live in. I was deployed for 7 months in 2020, then this year I was deployed for 3.5 months before being redeployed right before Christmas. We currently live in Washington State and will be moving back to the east coast this spring. My wish is to take my family to Disneyland when I return in a few weeks for a belated Christmas. Thank you very much for your time.

Family Trip to Disney World

Mar 12th 2022

Hello, My name is Shelbi and I am the mama to two beautiful kiddos and the wife to an amazing wife. I recently returned from a 7 month deployment that was very hard on my family. This was my first time away from my kids for this amount of time. Along with many firsts I missed my daughter's birthday, my wedding anniversary, and my son's first day of school. This was all very difficult for us all to navigate and process. I missed out on a lot. I would love to treat my family to a trip to Disney World. I believe this trip would give us some quality time together to make memories and make up for lost time. I am requesting park hopper passes for the 4 of us and any food vouchers that may be available. I understand if this isn't possible. I will be extremely grateful for whatever we receive. My family and I really appreciate your consideration. Thank you so much. God Bless.
