Past Hero's Wishes

Universal Studios Park Hopper

Sep 14th 2021

My name is Staff Sergeant Corey Keleher. I’ve just returned from a 7 month deployment, and I’m looking to surprise my family with a park hopping trip to Universal Studios. I’d love to bring myself, my wife, my 2 year old son (3 in December), and my father-in-law (25 year Army combat veteran) to see this great event.

Wicked at the Overture Center

Jul 21st 2021

My name is TSgt Huberr Hansen. I have just returned home from a deployment to Bagram Air Field, Afghanistan. My girlfriend wants nothing more than tickets to Wicked, the musical at the Overture center in Madison, WI. I would love nothing more than to surprise her with front row tickets for Christmas. The prices are far more than I can afford. She has said for the last several years that if Wicked ever comes back to Madison that she wants to go. She is a wonderful woman, with twin five year olds that I am helping to raise as my own. While I was deployed she kept it together, mowing the grass, shoveling snow, looking after my house and my dog. She deserves something truly special.

Disney World surprise trip for the family

May 10th 2021

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.

Disney World Orlando

Sep 14th 2020

My name is SSgt. James Mullennix. I am currently deployed and will be returning home in July. My wish would be to have my family and I be able to take a family trip to Disney World once I get back from my deployment as they had moved my deployment date up to miss both my eldest's birthday celebration and Christmas. I have been married for over 10 years and we have two wonderful daughters Autumn (8) and Merida (6). In 2018 we were displaced by Hurricane Michael, a category 5 hurricane that made direct landfall on our base, destroying Tyndall and our home. Shortly after that, a drunk driver totaled my wife's car. We spent the year following that trying to get settled in only to find that I would be deploying and possibly moving again in the fall of 2020 to a new assignment. I want my family to experience the magic of Disney World, and to know that there can be fun and peace where no one worries, even if only for a short time. Thank you for your consideration in making my family's dreams come true.

Disney World Trip

Sep 2nd 2020

My name is SSG Kevin Dubois. I have been a solider in the US ARMY for almost 9 years. I have had 2 deployments. I just recently returned from a 9 month deployment to Iraq. During deployment I missed my daughter's 3rd birthday and the only thing she has asked for is to got to Disney when I got home. Our money is tight because we are paying off debt so we can buy a home in a few years. So my wish is to take my 3 year old daughter and wife to Disney during my Christmas vacation. So any help to make her wish come true would be very appreciated.

Learn to oil paint for PTSD therapy at retreat.

Aug 11th 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

Disney World for 4

Mar 5th 2020

My name is TSgt Ryan Marra. I am in the Air Force, Security Forces career field and currently deployed to the Middle East. I have been in the Air Force for over 18 years out of New Jersey. I met and married my wife of 15 years while I was stationed at Malmstrom AFB, Montana. Since then we have 2 awesome, resilient children that have been all over the world. Now that I’m currently deployed, I want to give back to my family after all these moves that I’ve put them through after volunteering for so many different things while in the Air Force. With this possibly my last deployment, I need some help setting up a trip to Disney in Florida for them. Once I return I want to take them to Disney World in Orlando. I thank you for your consideration and help.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Charlotte Hornets

Mar 1st 2020

My name is MSgt Kyle Overby. I am from Wisconsin and currently stationed in North Carolina. I would love to take my family of 5 to see the Milwaukee Bucks play against the Charlotte Hornets when they play on March 1st. It would be our first NBA game. We would love for our first experience at an NBA game to be as close to the court as possible. That would be amazing although we would all just be excited to see a game in person.

Hello, I am TSgt Edric Johnson. I am currently in month 4 of a 6 month deployment at an undisclosed location. This is my second deployment in 3 years. My lovely wife (Debra) and daughter (Sydney) have been patiently awaiting my return. This hasn't been the easiest of deployments cause we miss each other terribly. I'm sure it's not easy on all of my fellow brothers and sister in arms who are away from their loved ones. Sydney and Debra have been my pillar of strength to help me through this deployment. To show my deepest gratitude, I am making a Hero's Wish. I would love to receive 3 Disney World 4 day park hopper tickets and give them the experience of a lifetime. Thank you for your support.

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!

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.

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!

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
 
The Polar Express Train Ride

Dec 18th 2019

I'm currently deployed and come back at the end of November or beginning of December. My kids favorite Christmas movie is The Polar Express and my wife and I think our 4 kids would absolutely love to actually ride on the Adirondack Scenic Train and their Polar Express trip. It would be great to not only get my family in the Christmas mode but also to reconnect as a family. I'm requesting 6 tickets because my wife and I have 4 kids and we dont want to leave anyone out.

Thank you Vet Tix and the 6 individuals that supported My Hero’s Wish to attend the Minnesota Vikings @ Los Angeles Chargers football game. This was our first football game as a family and our children enjoyed it just as much as we did! For it being in LA it was reported we had 80 to 90% Vikings fans that took up the stadium. It felt like a home game. Thank you all so much!

I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for everyone that made our Hero's Wish possible. We appreciated every donation that made it happen. Our entire family had the time of their lives. This was definitely a vacation that we will remember forever. Thank you for providing memories that we will always remember. I dont feel like saying thank you is enough. We had so much fun visiting the parks and spending time together. The kids got to meet some of their favorite characters as well as ride some of the awesome rides they had at the parks. This was an amazing opportunity and we are so thankful. I will do my part and donate to someone else's Hero' Wish. I will also spread the word about how great the Vet Tix organization is. Thank you... Thank you..... Thank you And Merry Christmas! The Jorgensen's
