Learn to oil paint for PTSD therapy at retreat.

May 2nd 2020

My name is GMG3 Glenn Cernosek. I am a 100% disabled Navy veteran. I served in Vietnam on river patrol boats (PBR's). I was wounded and have PTSD. The Veterans Administration has published documents that prove that art activities, such as painting, can help someone with PTSD cope with those difficulties. I would like to attend a workshop to learn to oil paint in the outdoors, and learn to sell my paintings to supplement my income. The Plein Air Convention & Expo will be held next year in Denver Colorado, May 2-6, 2020. There are over 80 top master artists that will be teaching at this event. There are also sessions about how to market my paintings. The event is fully explained at www.PleinAirConvention.com

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!

Post Deployment Disney Dream for Special Needs Family

Jan 27th 2020

My name is SFC Victor Long. I am currently on my 5th overseas deployment, and coming up on my 16th year of service with the US Army. I've missed countless birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, my son's first day of kindergarten, family events, etc. My wife is our family's cheerleader, supporter, advocate, teacher, nurse, taxi driver and more. Our 5 year old son was diagnosed with Autism right before his 2nd birthday. She always makes certain he has every resource, therapy session, doctor's visit, and specialized care he needs to thrive. My dream is to surprise my wife and son with a trip to Disneyland. It has been their wish to go when I return from deployment. Due to my unpredictable schedule, we haven't been able to take a family vacation since our son was born 5 years ago, and I would love this opportunity to reconnect as a family at The Happiest Place on Earth!

Disneyland Passes for the family while Im in VOC Rehab

Jan 15th 2020

I'm not sure if this fits the mold of the regular wish, but if I only get one chance I want to swing for the fences. I'm asking for 5 of the lowest tier Disneyland Season Passes while I go through VOC Rehab to get job retraining. I've been unemployed or severely underemployed for over a year and I desperately need to get into a new job field. The VA is going to provide that retraining in the IT field, so there is light at the end of the tunnel. However, I'm going to be gone most days from sun up to well past sundown for the next 7 months. We live very close to Disneyland, California, and my young kids still see all the Magic. It would be amazing to be able to take them for a few hours here and there over the next few months to help pass the time. I cant help feel greedy asking for season passes but minus the cost of travel the difference from a single day use ticket isn’t much. Thank you!

Post Deployment Family trip to Walt Disney World

My name is SGT Aaron Keehn. I have a beautiful family. An amazing wife and beautiful 4 yr old little girl named Lily Rose. I am presently completing a 9 month deployment over seas, which resulted in me missing out on holiday and family events, including my daughter's 4th birthday. I would love to take my wife and daughter to Walt Disney World upon return from deployment. This is my second deployment, and I can't think of a better way to make up for lost memories, than building new ones at Walt Disney World. I would like to make a Hero’s Wish to request (3) Disney World 5-day park hopper tickets for my family.

Disneyland wish

Jan 1st 2020

Hello, I am SSGT Zachary Stallings. I am currently on a nine month deployment at an undisclosed location. This is my third deployment. My amazing wife, Catherine, two daughters, and baby boy are awaiting my arrival. This is the second deployment that I have missed most of a child's first year and milestones. I was lucky to be there for the birth this time. My wife has dealt with a lot of stress and hardship raising the kids on her own while in school. My girls have struggled the past few months in my absence. My wish is to make their dreams come true and take them to Disneyland. They are stuck in Alaska with no support. I would love to receive 4 Disneyland 4 day park hopper tickets to treat them for all of their patience and support. Thank you for your time and consideration.

LADY GAGA ENIGMA VIP evening in Vegas

Dec 30th 2019

I am SFC (R) Jim Daigle. I was medically retired from the U.S. Army. I have been wounded twice serving in Afghanistan. This resulted in numerous injuries from which I have recovered as much as possible but am unable to continue serving. Although surgeries and rehab have helped the pain and mobility significantly, I am limited in regards to the activities I can participate. We have 2 sons in the military (Army and USMC) 1 of which has also been wounded and has a Purple Heart. Both are currently deployed overseas so thanks to the 3 of us, my wife's worry level is thru the roof! I would love to reward my wife Tina, who has taken on a lot, and is a HUGE LADY GAGA fan with a special trip to see Lady Gaga in Las Vegas. She has never been able to see her due to deployments, duty stations and moving and this would mean the world to her. Please allow us this special once in a lifetime LADY GAGA ENIGMA evening. Thanks VETTIX!!

Dallas Cowboys Dream

Dec 29th 2019

My Name is SSG Jennifer York. I recently came back from deployment in August on emergency leave. My 15 year old son was staying with his dad & grandparents in Amarillo while I was deployed, which was supposed to be thru November. However, his dad went missing and despite exhaustive search efforts, authorities could not find him. My son started his junior year & his 1st year playing Varsity without his dad on the sidelines to cheer him on like he always had. My son wanted to stay & finish the school year there so I drove back & forth to watch him play every home game he played after my emergency leave was up & I had to return back to post. Hopes were still high that we would eventually find his dad and in early October we did, just not in a joyous sense. With his father's passing, I'd like to take him and my dad, who's been a Cowboys fan for over 40 years, to a Dallas Cowboys football game while I'm on post-deployment holiday block leave. I want to take my son to get him out of the house around Christmas, create new memories, and hopefully provide a distraction for the first holiday season without his dad. The reason I'd like to include my own dad, aside from him being a loyal fan, is that at 63 he's had 4 heart procedures, to include a quadruple bypass when he was 49. Currently, some of the bypasses is becoming blocked that can't be fixed with stents & the doctor found a blockage on his heart they call the "Widowmaker". He's currently doing well & staying active but I know it's only a matter of time. We can't take for granted there'll be a next year & I pray I'll be able to create this memory for the three of us through your generous support. THANK YOU & GOD BLESS!

Minnesota Vikings vs Green Bay Packers game

Dec 23rd 2019

My name is Tsgt Joye Lamme. I was deployed to the 455 EMDG Bagram Afghanistan from Oct 18 to April 19. I was away from my family for almost 7 months. I missed both my oldest's freshman and senior years due to deployments. I have 2 boys who have been amazing troopers. I'm lucky they are so understanding and adaptable. As a huge Minnesota Vikings fan I would love to be able to go and watch the Vikings play Green Bay at their home stadium with amazing seats! I have just got back from my second deployment to Afghanistan. All of my deployments have been during Football season. Thank goodness for AFN but we were limited on the games that they showed.

Disney World my family for Christmas

Dec 23rd 2019

My name is Michael Emerick. I am a combat wounded veteran that served in Afghanistan. During my 16 month deployment I was involved in numerous firefights and sustained a traumatic brain injury after being shot in the helmet. I suffer from debilitating migraine headaches, neck and back issues, double/blurred vision and PTSD. After my deployment I decided that I didn't want to raise a family in the military. I was honorably discharged and moved to Texas to go to Universal Technical Institute. I graduated at the top of my class only to realize that I could not sustain long hours of working underneath vehicles with my back and neck issues. I am now a full time Dad taking care of our five children while my wife works to support our family. Christmas time with five children is incredibly chaotic. We love our large family, but sometimes the joy of Christmas is overshadowed by gifts. We decided we would love to take our five children to Disney World to create lasting memories rather than give them gifts. However, Disney World tickets are much more expensive than we could've imagined, especially for a family of seven.

Take my Family to Disney World

Dec 20th 2019

Hello my name is Nichelle. I am a wife and mother of three amazing children. We have suffered tremendous loss over the past couple years. 3 years ago, our house burned down, and we lost nearly everything. We have since been building back up. We are grateful and thankful to have survived the ordeal. Late 2018, we did a military move to be closer to family. Shortly after arrival, I was given a short notice deployment and had to deploy 2-weeks later. Shortly upon arrival, I received word that my 19-year-old brother died. I had to break the news to my children and rush back home to coordinate and ensure all his funeral arrangements. We were devastated. Since being reassigned home, my brother was always spending time with us. After the funeral, I returned to duty to finish my commitment. I'm currently on my second deployment and I try to speak to my kids every day. Everyday my heart breaks because without fail, they tell me how much they miss me and want me to come home. I missed them too. My kids Jade (7), Mya (5), Eli (5) are so resilient, they've been through so much at such a young age. I want to be able to do something special for them and show them how much I love and appreciate them and the sacrifices they've made through my service to this country. My children, always talk about going to Disney World. I would like to help make that happen for them when I return from deployment. It's just what we as a family need to reconnect and have fun. My family graciously requests 5 tickets.

Thank You Message From Hero:
Dear VetTix and Gracious Donors, Thank you so much for granting my wish! It was exactly what the family and I needed to disconnect with the stressors of life and reconnect with each other. I never thought that I would ever be able to take my children to Disney World. Thanks to your generous contributions, I was able to do just that. My kids and I had an amazing time at the most magical place on earth and there's no better season to visit Disney World than right before Christmas. The experience was nothing like I could ever imagine, it was far more than I ever expected. The park was breathtaking, as it was decorated so beautifully. Going to the park allowed us to create memories that will last a life time. Growing up, my family was never able to afford taking me and my brothers to Disney World or Disneyland and I wanted to be able to do things for my children that my family was never able to do for me. I want to help give them the opportunity to grow, travel and experience things that were unattainable for me at my young age. All of which is part of the reason I joined the military, to have a better life than I did, to work hard to remove some of the barriers that made growing up with a single parent, incredibly challenging. You all made it possible for me take my family and as an added bonus, I was able to pay all costs to surprise my mother with the trip as well. My mother has always dreamed of going to Disney World and as mentioned before, she never had the means to make it possible. With careful coordination with her medical care providers, she was approved for the trip and was able to receive treatment just minutes from the park. The trip was not only a surprise for my mother, but for the kids as well. Upon returning from deployment, I spent months trying to conceal my excitement for the surprise of a lifetime. There are no words to truly express how thankful I am for all the donors that made this wish possible for me and my family. This incredible opportunity is one I’m sure we will never forget. Thank you so much for blessing me and my family with tickets to Disney World. I hope to be a blessing to others in the future. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays & Happy New Year! Nichelle

George Strait concert

Nov 23rd 2019

My name is SSG Larry Schwab. I met my wife in Texas 31 years ago in 1988. I was stationed at Ft. Hood Texas 2nd armor Division. We had tickets to go to see George Strait in Temple Texas and had been dating for about 3 months. On our way to the Concert my girlfriend and I realized that we were in love and both wanted to get married immediately. We never did make it to the George Strait concert. Please know that we have no regrets. We would have traded anything to be together forever. We became so busy with raising seven children one handicapped And in 1990 being sent to Desert Shield which turned into desert storm and then being wounded in a mine field just inside Kuwait. I was awarded the Purple Heart but could no longer serve. We never got the chance to see George Strait. We've always wanted to, But never got the chance. Our handicapped son was born with Pradre Willie Syndrome He is now 26 and was declared a helpless child by the VA and will live with us his whole life. In 2016 I suffered a widow maker heart attack and now have to carry nitro with me. My wife Debbie and I would still very much like to see George Straight in concert. We are sure that if we don't get to see him soon we never will. It would mean the world to us as that is where we were headed when our life together started. ‎Sat ‎24 ‎Aug, ‎2019 – ‎8‎:‎00‎ ‎PM George Strait 08.24 - Troubadour with Ashley McBryde T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas NV Thank you and God Bless!

Hi everyone, I’m currently on my first deployment in Djibouti, Africa getting ready to head home after a long 13 months. When I left home my niece she was three and now she just celebrated her fifth birthday and started kindergarten. We love Disneyland and it would be awesome to be able to make up for two missed birthdays with her favorite Disney princess. I never realized how much you could miss your family!!

Disneyland Trip

Nov 22nd 2019

My name is SPC Steven Jaime. I am currently deployed in Afghanistan. As many of you know it’s beyond difficult being away from family but what has been the most difficult for me is missing moments of my boys growing up. Birthdays , holidays , you name it . I want to surprise my youngest son (my 4 year old) with a trip to Disneyland. I won’t be able to make it home for his birthday but at least I can try to make it up to him with this surprise trip. Make up for loss time with my wife and our two sons.

I would like to thank all of the donors that made this trip possible for my family and I. This trip would have never happened without you. To see the look on my children's face with excitement after finding out where we are going , it was all because of you. It was a family trip none of us will ever forget. Our youngest son is obsessed with Toy Story and believe me the gift card that we received was also a blessing because that definitely came in handy with all the toy story toys we bought with it. I just cannot thank you enough. My family and I are beyond grateful and we promise to pay it forward. Thank you again for your generosity. This trip would have never been possible with all of you. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts .
 
Disney World trip after final deployment

Nov 17th 2019

My name is MSgt. Derek Ludlow. After almost 20 years of service and five deployments (four of those within the past six years), I will soon be retiring. Coming home from this final deployment, I would love to be able to take my family to Orlando to visit Disney World. They have sacrificed such an incredible amount with me constantly being away, missing countless holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries, this would be an incredible experience and opportunity for us to reconnect as well as celebrate our last extended absence from each other. Thank you all for your incredible generosity in helping provide this experience for my family!

Hogwarts in the Fall Universal Studios

Nov 15th 2019

Hello, My incredible wife is a huge Harry Potter fan and has been waiting for our daughter to be old enough to enjoy the Harry Potter series. We are currently reading the series as a family, taking turns sharing the magical story. I would really love to take my family to Hogwarts to experience the magic in real life at Universal Studios Hollywood. We are requesting 4 tickets for myself, my wife, my daughter, and my stepson to visit Universal Studios this fall. My daughter has a fall break from school at the end of October, which would be ideal, but we are happy for the opportunity to visit anytime in the near future. I am a combat wounded veteran that lives off a fixed income and it can be tough to make ends meet with all of life's expenses, 4 tickets out of pocket adds up to a lot of money for my family and we would be extremely grateful to have this wish granted. We are a blended family and my wife and I have worked hard to create a strong family unit with our children having a 14 year age gap. We are always finding special ways for us to enjoy family time doing something that brings each of us joy. It is very important to us that as our children grow, we share traditions and build strong family memories to hold our bond over time. Laughing and having fun at Universal Studios as a family will be something we never forget!

I wanted to thank each donor who made this trip with my family possible. We had an incredible time at Universal Studios and it was a joy seeing my stepson and daughter run around together having a blast. It was a fun bonding experience for our family and we greatly appreciate the opportunity given to us by the donors through Veteran Tickets. My wife and daughter could have spent all day in Hogsmeade and Hogwarts, they loved the magic of it. My stepson and I really enjoyed the behind the scenes tour and getting to see behind the magic. Thank you for the memories!
 
A Disneyland Birthday

Nov 13th 2019

My name is Sgt Kalond Bushell. I started my military journey in 2009 with the support of my wife and first child Aja. My wife and I agreed that although I would be missing out on milestones with our daughter that sacrifice would be worth it. 10 years later I have two daughters ages fifteen and five, and a a son who is about to turn two. I missed most of the holidays with my family last year and all of their birthdays while deployed. Including my son's first birthday. I would like to surprise my family with a trip to Disneyland/California Adventure for his second birthday. Although I can’t make up for all of the things that I missed, I can start making new memories as a family. We would need four 3 day park hopper tickets to Disneyland/California Adventure.

San Francisco 49ers game Ultimate Fan Package

Nov 11th 2019

My name is Sgt Miles, Hugh of the USMC. I am an 0341 mortarman. I have been deployed 4 times 2 combat tours and 2 tours to Okinawa. I have just gotten back from my last deployment of my career. I have 1 year left in the Marine Corps. With the fast pace of deployments and being in the infantry I have not had time to keep up with the 49ers. The last time I saw a game they were playing at candlestick park. The have recently moved to Levi stadium and a new practice facility. My wish is for me and my family to go watch a 49ers practice at there new facility then to be able to watch a game that same weekend at the new Levi stadium. I have been a die hard 49ers fan my entire life. I was able to watch their 2013 Super Bowl game while I was in Afghanistan at 3am. I stayed up all night to watch the game. It would be amazing if my wish would be granted.

Cowboys at Giants Football Game

Nov 4th 2019

My name is SFC ROBERT CULLARS. I have a wish to support my favorite team, the Dallas Cowboys. Super wish would be to see the Cowboys/Giants Game but I’ll be humble to sit and watch any game. I live in Pennsylvania and I am a true supporter of the NY Giants. Born and raised in Newark NJ this has always been my dream. I’ve served our country and pray for other soldiers. I had a son killed while in the US Air Force not even completely out of tech school due to a 1st SGT being double the alcohol limit. Besides that shocking trauma and disappointment I’ve experienced many casualties while on deployment. I have a family of 4. Recently separated in May 2018 from the Army.

They made a special announcement for me thanking me for being there and they gave us all cake since the next day was Abbys birthday. If you've never been to one of these places you should really make it a point to visit. We will be back. Thank you again so much for the tickets!! SSgt Dan Bennett
