Legoland Florida

Jul 6th 2018

My name is Albert Meraz. I am currently overseas for a year long tour in Afghanistan. I have my wife and two girls (6 and 2) at home supporting me and awaiting my return in the summer next year. My wish is to take them to legoland in Florida and stay there for the weekend in July when I should be able to take post deployment leave. They have been so strong through this tour and I would like to give them a nice fun break when I arrive back.

Family Trip to Disney World

Jul 2nd 2018

Hello my name is SGT Jeremy A. Looman. I just returned from Ukraine in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve with the Army National Guard. My youngest son, Sean, was born on the first day that I deployed to Ukraine. I returned a 2 weeks ago, and could only afford to take a week off before returning back to work. I have spent over 4 years in a combat zone, most of that time on Active Duty status with the 173D ABCT. It would mean the world to me spend time with Sean, and the rest of my beautiful family. My wish is for 6 Disney World Park Hopper Passes. My wife is amazing, such a sweet person and so deserving of a vacation. Even if this wish doesn't come true, I feel blessed to have served in the United States Army and the National Guard. My beautiful family consists of 7 but only need tickets for 6 because Sean is so young. Jenny my beautiful wife, Kyra (13), Halle (11), Jeremy Jr. (5), Jace (3), and Sean (7 Mo) and myself.

Universal Studios Honeymoon

Jun 30th 2018

My name is Lieutenant Junior Grade Dominic Scharret, My wife and I have been married for almost 5 years now, and I have not been able to take her on a proper honeymoon. I did not have the leave or money at the time of our wedding due to the fact I was stationed in San Diego and our wedding was in Georgia (all of my leave and money was spent on travel back to my duty station). Since our wedding, I have not had time to take her on a proper honeymoon due to deployments, OPTEMPO and the fact I was selected for Officer Candidate School (OCS). After training at OCS, I received my commission and went further into more grueling training for flight school. I have not had time to take any vacations with my wife, let alone make up for her missed honeymoon. Recently, I was selected into the HR community and now, I finally have a position where I have the time to be able to take her on the honeymoon she deserves. I would like to take her to Universal Studios Hollywood. She is obsessed with Harry Potter.

Disney World

Jun 18th 2018

My name is SGT Holt (Morris). I am currently serving with the Ohio Army National Guard's, 371st Sustainment Brigade, to Southwest Asia. I have been in the military almost 15 years. Once completed I will have been away from my family for over 11 months. This is my first deployment and leaving my family is the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I know being deployed is equally as hard on my husband and kids. My amazing husband is at home acting as both mother and father to my daughter who just turned 16 and my stepson who just turned 17. My stepson has autism and has a hard time focusing and understanding things sometimes. I also have a 13 year old daughter and a 12 year old son as well. I married my husband in October 2016 and I was deployed a few months later. My husband was born with spinabifida and also has a VP shunt in his brain to drain the fluid out of his brain. He also has to use a wheelchair most of the times now because walking and standing puts to much stress on his back and hips. This is the only thing that gives him some relief besides all the medicines he takes to aid in helping with the pain some. I should return home around mid-March 2018 and am planning to take my family to Disney World; I am asking for 6, 5 day Armed Forces Salute tickets. I have missed so much in this past year and the year leading up to this deployment that I am hoping this trip can help with re-connecting with them. Thank you so much for any help in making my wish for my kids come true. I greatly appreciate all the support.

Disneyland Vacation (homecoming reunion)

Jun 15th 2018

My name is Chief Petty Officer Bradley, Erik. It'll be 16 years of service come this May 2018. The toughest part about being in the military is leaving a support system like no other...my family has sacrificed so much for my career and continues to do so. I am currently deployed to the Persian Gulf and will not return until December sometime (7 months gone). My wife and I have had dreams of taking our boys to Disney since they were 2 and 4 (now 7 and 9) and have not had the funds to take our boys on a family vacation. I would love to be able to surprise our 2 boys with a trip to Disneyland to try to make up for all the missed birthdays, anniversaries and holidays. I would like to make a Hero's wish to request (4) Disneyland 3-day park hopper tickets for my family; My wife Rebecca and our 2 boys; CJ 9, Trenton 7. We would love to take this trip in February or March 2018. Any sort of contribution would be greatly appreciated and a dream come true for all of us. Please help our family with a vacation that will be remembered for a lifetime and we would be forever grateful. Thank you and God Bless.

To take my family to Disney World

Jun 15th 2018

I am a Navy Corpsman, currently on my 3rd deployment. I am married to my beautiful wife, Sandra, and we have 3 boys -Kayden (7), Christopher (5), and Samuel (1). Due to monetary constraints, I have been unable to give my family a true vacation. I wish to bring my family to Disney World and have a memorable vacation with them. The military keeps me away from my family far more than I wish, and I want to have a special vacation with my family. I don't want my boys to look back and only remember me being gone all the time. I want my family to have a little bit of fun if that is possible.

Disney World Dream Vacation

Jun 11th 2018

Hello everyone! I'm SFC McBride, I am on my 4th deployment. I have been in the Army for 16 years. I have missed so many significant moments with the family. We haven’t had time to make it to 1 family reunion while I have been in the service. My wife Veronica was also in the service, but had to get out because of complications with our triplets during birth. Our family has been through a lot with me being away during deployments and military training. My wife has been the backbone of this family for many years, abandoning her dream to serve our country and becoming a stay at home mom. We have 7 kids total (1 set of triplets, my baby boy has autism in the pic with his head down) and I could never be able to balance life the way she does it on a daily basis. My kids are Lem Jr 12, Cassidy 10, Jayden 8, Ladarius 6, Aloni, Amari, Aloni all three are 5. During this deployment, my 2 oldest sons have stepped up and tried to fill my shoes with supporting my wife with the little ones. I want to show my wife and kids that I’m very grateful for their patience and support. I want to take the family to Disney World in Florida for 3 days. I am just asking for assistance with purchasing tickets. I have saved enough during this deployment to pay for lodging, and transportation. I return home around June and want to plan our trip in July. A trip to Disney World is a one in a lifetime dream for our family, but because of the size it’s very difficult. A friend told me about the Hero's Wish and this gave me hope that our dream could actually come true. Thank you so much and I'm truly grateful for any support. GOD BLESS!

Post Deployment Family Vacation DisneyWorld

My name is SGT Jeremiah Brewington. I am currently deployed to assist in Operation Enduring Freedom. This is my second deployment. During the course of this deployment my wife gave birth to our 4th child prematurely. Our other 3 children (5,4,3) have been more than patient while their mother has adjusted to life with 4 kiddos temporarily on her own. They've had to deal with many of illnesses, unexpected diagnoses, and surgeries while I've been away. I feel that it's time to bring some light into their lives, and would love the opportunity to take them to Disney World.

Universal Studios - Orlando

Jun 10th 2018

Hello everyone! My name is Rosanne Caballero. I'm an Air Force active duty Staff Seargent currently deployed overseas. I currently call RAF Lakenheath in England home. I'm a proud Security Forces member with five years of K-9 experience. My job doesn't always allow much time for travel with my family, nor does it yet make sense to my 8-year old son. My plan is to make it up to him in the ultimate way by taking him to one of the best theme parks during his next summer break. Our family enjoys going on adventures as much as possible. All I want is to make unforgettable memories we can cherish during his lifetime. My family has had a difficult time understanding the military lifestyle since they have only been exposed to it for about two years now. They are my rocks and keep me going when times get tough. My only wish is to give them all that they deserve plus more. I would love to take them to Universal Studios Orlando. Although it could never make up for the time I was away, it would give us a great deal of time to spend together without interruptions. I just want to say thank you for this program and all that you do for our vets!

Disney World Vacation

Hello, my name is SSG Phi Nguyen and I just recently returned home from my 2nd deployment and wish to take my family on a vacation to Disney World. After my 1st deployment I was unable to take them anywhere on a vacation so I would love to surprise them this time around with a trip to Disney World. Although this was only my 2nd deployment, I have missed countless birthdays, anniversaries, multiple holidays and school functions which has been really tough on my family, not just myself. I want to let my family know that I appreciate them for all their sacrifices that they have had to make while I was away. I would love to have three 4-day park hopper passes to Disney World. Thank you so much for any help in making my wish for my family dream come true. I greatly appreciate all the support.

I understand what I do is for the country and the Army but it weighs heavy on the family being gone for an extended period of time. I would love to be able to take my husband and two daughters on a trip to Disney World, and Universal Studios. This will help us with some much-needed family time and will be greatly appreciated.

Legoland with the family

May 26th 2018

My Name is Sgt. David Arbiso. I first joined the Army back in 1992, then re-enlisted in 2007. This is my second deployment to the Middle East. Even with the advanced technology this time being able to talk on the phone, instead of writing to loved ones, this still has been one of the toughest. This is the first deployment my kids' ages 4 to 6-year-old had to endure, with many tears. It also was a time where my grandfather, a WW2 Navy Vet, passed away. He is the one who introduced me to the military. He was the one that showed me how proud a Vet he was honoring his country. Another tough spot for my wife was keeping control of the household, going back to school and graduates on May 25, but sadly had to endure putting her best friend, her dog, to sleep due to age and health issues. So my wish is to treat my family to Legoland in San Diego, so my little ones can enjoy the time with their parents.

Legoland - Orlando

Hi! My name is Sgt Joshua Horne. I lost my best friend in 2009, the day I was wounded. I later discovered infidelity within my first marriage which resulted in losing my family. Shortly thereafter, God led me to my current wife and, we were able to obtain sole custody of my kids which allowed us to be a blended family. We haven't had a honeymoon or anything and I'd really love to share in a family vacation. My world is complete, especially with the arrival of our now 18 month old daughter. We have 5 kids; 9,8,8,6 and 18 months. We have all girls and one boy. My wish is to be able to all go on a vacation and spend some much needed quality family time. I'd love to be able to take them to Legoland when I return around Sept 2017.

Post deployment family trip to Disneyland for daughter's birthday

Apr 28th 2018

MSgt John Escalante USMC, 21 year veteran, on my 11th deployment scheduled to return in April 2018 just in time for my daughter's seventh birthday. I understand what I do is for country and Corps but it weighs heavy on the family being gone all the time. Since my daughter's birth, this is my third deployment, first one being just three days after she was born. It would mean the world to me if my supportive wife Emily, daughter Dylan, and myself could spend the weekend at Disneyland for Dylan's birthday and to celebrate my safe return home. We are respectfully requesting (3) 3 day park hopper tickets to Disneyland.

Disney World Vacation

Apr 21st 2018

My name is CPT Leon Forystek and I am currently serving my fourth deployment in the military overseas with the 371SB all over Iraq and Afghanistan. I have 4 kids ranging 1-4.I have missed all my children being born, all holidays, birthdays, walking, first tooth pulled, first day of school, and so on. The first thing that I would love to do for my kids the very first time without missing anything is to take them to Disney in Florida when I return in April of 2018. With pre-deployment training, I have not been able to take my kids anywhere or barely take them to the park, so this trip would mean so much to me and my children. I am going to retire when I return and thought I can at least share a great moment with my family.

Disney World - Park Hopper Plus Tickets

Apr 7th 2018

I would love to take my wife and three kids (15, 5 and 1) to Disney World for the kid's spring break after I return in March from my current six month deployment to Iwakuni, Japan. When my wife and I married in 2011 we were unable to go on a honeymoon due to my deployment schedule at the time. Since then I've missed birthdays, first steps, holidays and too many other moments with my family. It would be an amazing experience to spend some much needed quality time with them away from work. Since my youngest is only a year old we would just need 4 tickets and we would be very grateful if we could get 5 day tickets with the Park Hopper Plus option so that we can make the most out of the trip.

This is my second deployment but the first time I have had to deploy while being a mother and wife; leaving my family is the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I know being deployed is equally as hard on my husband and kids. My wonderful husband is at home acting as both mother and father to our 4 daughters (2, 3, 5 and 13 yrs old) while working nights as a Columbus Police Officer. I should return home around mid-March 2018 and am planning to take my family to Disney World; I am asking for 6, 5 day Armed Forces Salute tickets.

Hey everyone! I'm Major Michael Ketcham, on my 3rd deployment away from family. My kids are growing up very quickly, and I'm lucky enough to be able to video chat with them and get many pictures! I have 2 boys and 2 girls all under the age of 11. They paired up and provided me 2 little stuffed animals that I can take with me everywhere I go. I take pictures of them helping me with all my tasks so the kids can be a part of what I'm doing! When I get back, I would love to take the family to Universal in Orlando Florida. My wife is a stay-at-home mom, it is hard to take a large family on a big vacation on a single-income budget. With the money I've saved up from this deployment, I would love help in purchasing 6 Armed Forces Salute tickets! We receive AMAZING support from those we protect, and I'm truly grateful for everything! GOD BLESS!
