Disney World surprise trip for the family

Dec 17th 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.

Discovery Cove Orlando - Signature Dolphin Swim Package + 2 parks for my family

Dec 13th 2021

I love my family! I have been deployed 6 months so far. This deployment has been hard, the first deployment for our two youngest boys. My previous deployment was when their next older sister was just a baby. Our oldest son is away at college, and our second oldest, our daughter Madyson, died in a car accident 6 years ago. Looking forward to reconnecting to my wife and kids, and sharing an adventure with them. I would like to take my family for a day at Discovery Cove swimming with the dolphins. I would take my wife and the 4 youngest kids. 6 tickets in total. We would like to get the SIGNATURE DOLPHIN SWIM PACKAGE + 2 PARKS option. We would like to go over Christmas break, December 13th, 2021.

Universal Studios Park Hopper

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.

Disneyland Post Deployment Dream!

Nov 7th 2021

My name is Major Jeremy Colwell. I am an active duty Marine for the last 15 years and I am currently deployed and away from my wife and three children, ages 8,7, and 3. I am missing many important occasions while being away, such as three birthdays, anniversary, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and not to mention school events and the day to day memories being made while my children grow up. It is so hard to be away from them during these times. I would love to be able to take them to Disneyland upon my return in April to make new memories with them all again. We are HUGE Disney fans and cannot think of a better way to reconnect than with some Disney Magic! I am requesting 5 Disneyland 3 Day Park Hopper tickets so we can all go, myself, my wife and three children.

Thank you to those generous folks who provided donations so that my family could spend time with each other at Disneyland. This has been a long time coming… returning from Afghanistan to be met by COVID and wondering if we would get a great / relatively similar experience upon arriving to Disney 19 months later… it’s been interesting. After Day 2, I can tell you that we are having a blast and are super fortunate / thankful for you all! We certainly remain… Semper Fidelis!
 
Spring Break Universal Studios Orlando

Oct 24th 2021

My name is MSgt Mark Goenen. This is my 8th deployment during my career. I am currently serving as Fire Chief for a newly established "bare base" in Saudi Arabia. When we arrived on the ground there were less than 20 tents and no capability for Fire Emergency Services. Over our 180+ day deployment we will have built a base that will accommodate 2K personnel on a permanent basis. This deployment will see me miss 3 birthdays, wedding anniversary, and the winter holidays. I was chosen for this deployment on a very short notice, I had under one month to prepare to deploy and make sure the girls were taken care of during my absence. It would be a wonderful gift to take my girls to Universal Studios Orlando, (they are HUGE Harry Potter fans) as my girls have all been working very hard in school and life to overcome my absence for 6 months.

Disney World Florida Family Vacation

Oct 18th 2021

Hello, my name is SPC Trenton Davis, I am an MP currently deployed to the Middle East as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. The only downside to serving my country was leaving my beautiful wife behind. As she has been so supportive during this deployment, I’d love nothing more than to be able to take her on a Disney world vacation to Florida. Providing all goes well, I am set to return home October 2020. I am requesting 2, four day park hopper tickets to Disney World in Orlando, Florida. I want to ensure she knows how much I appreciate the tremendous support and love I have received from her. I genuinely appreciate all the support and assistance from those donating to these causes. Your contributions mean more than you know to soldiers. Thank you.

Take my daughter to Disney World

Oct 11th 2021

Hello, my name is Maricella. I would love to be able to take my daughter to Disney World during her fall break in October 2021. I am an Army veteran. I deployed to Afghanistan twice OEF 2010-2011 where I earned 2 purple hearts and OEF 2012-2013. I was medically discharged from the military due to my injuries. My injuries include TBI, PTSD, anxiety, depression, hearing loss, memory loss/issues, and an injury to my neck that caused mobility issues. I am 100% non-workable, total disabled Veteran, so it's harder to save and takes longer. My daughter is 5 years old and it's her dream to go to Disney World. She deserves to go because she is the sweetest, most helpful girl. Even though I'm not with my daughter's father, I would love to include him in this once in a lifetime memory. I'm requesting three tickets to Disney World. I thank you for your consideration and thanks for all you do.

Post IA Family Disneyland trip

Sep 8th 2021

Hi everyone, my name is CTM1 Estrada I'm currently in the middle of an IA deployment in the middle-east and although this is my 4th deployment. it's the first time that I have deployed since I had my son (currently 3 years old). So, those of you that have experienced this can understand that this deployment has been by far the toughest one. I have been wanting to take my son to Disneyland for a while, but I wanted to wait until he was a little bigger so that he could actually enjoy the park. He will be almost 4 by the time I come back, so I think that it will be perfect timing to take him when I come back from deployment. I'm requesting 3, 4 day park hopper passes to Disneyland so that my son, wife and I can enjoy some quality time after being apart for more than 7 months.

Thank you so much for making my wish come true! I personally love Disneyland, and ever since my son was born I was counting the days till I could take him to it, and because of his condition (autism) I wanted to wait a little longer to ensure that he would enjoy this wonderful experience. Yesterday was an amazing day for all of us and he was very happy to see Mickey and friends, but without a doubt the highlight of his day was when he saw Lightning McQueen. Once again, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

My name is SSgt Mangrum I have just returned home from a 7 month deployment from Bagram Afghanistan. My wife has held down our household and navigated the COVID pandemic by herself while caring for our two children ages 2 and 4. This deployment has been extremely tough but I am grateful we made it through. The last several months have been filled with challenges and changes. As soon as I returned home we PCS’d from Louisiana to Colorado. My wish is to take a family trip to visit Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL as My wife and kids deserve this trip. I am requesting four 5-Day Park Hopper plus tickets to Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. I am hoping to take them on a much needed trip this fall 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.

Family of 6 Disney World Wish

Aug 1st 2021

My name is SPC Andrew Boktor. I have been in the Army National Guard since high school and this September will make 9 years total. I was on a 15 month deployment because my return date continued to get delayed due to COVID 19. This was my first deployment and it was one of the hardest yet rewarding things to do in my life. I missed holidays, special occasions and the passing of my grandmother and uncle. It is a honor to serve our great country. However, I could not have done that without my amazing support system back home. My wife, mother, father, brother & sister-in law, all made me stronger during the deployment. My wife’s family took me on my first Disney trip 9 years ago and we all enjoyed the extraordinary time together. My father in law has recently been diagnosed with a debilitating disease called Inclusion Body Myositis. His time of being ambulatory may come to an end sooner than we all would like. I just want to be able to give back to my family as much as they have given to me. This is the first time I have been away from my wife (we went to middle school, high school, and college together) and it took a stressful toll on both of us. She is my rock. I just want to show my appreciation for my family by taking them on a trip to Disney World in Orlando, FL. I am asking for 4 day tickets for 6 members of my family. Their strength and prayers helped bring me home safe. With all the negativity going on during a pandemic and deployment, my family deserves some magic and joy. We are truly humbled and thankful to be considered for this wish fulfillment. Thank you VETTIX for all you do!

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.

Family Trip to Universal Studios Orlando

Hi my name is Misael, I am a disabled army veteran. I enlisted in 2010 in the US ARMY as a medic and was attached to a infantry regiment 2-4INF 10th mountain bravo company where I deployed to Afghanistan in 2011 and was seriously wounded by a suicide bomber. I am blind in my right eye and have several herniated disk in my neck. I spent about a year at Walter Reed recovering from my wound and was later discharged on a medical retirement. Traveling has always been a passion of mine, unfortunately, I am on a fixed budget which makes it difficult to afford such trips especially with a family. I would love my kids to experience the thrill of roller coasters and see the sights that Universal has to offer.

Universal Orlando (Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure)

Jun 14th 2021

I am a SGT with the South Carolina Army National Guard. I have been in for 12 years, and I am currently in the Middle East on my 2nd deployment. Due to train up at the NTC in California and Ft. Bliss, TX I have been away from my family since June of 2019, and I should be scheduled to be home sometime in October. When not serving my country, I am serving my community. I am a Class II Officer in South Carolina and help run a shift at a County Detention Center. So, between military and law enforcement, I am almost always away from home. I have a wonderful wife (Caroline), and we have three great children (Caitlin 11, Caleb 10, and Cooper 3). My family has always sacrificed so much of themselves for me whenever duty has called, and they have done so selflessly. They allow me to go with no remorse or regrets, only love and support! They lift me up and encourage me along my path! While all the while, they continue on with their life while I am away. My wife works full time, and still manages to take care of our house and family! My two oldest children always willingly step up to assist her, and my youngest child, through the excellent examples of his older siblings, does what he can to help around the house as well! They have grown and matured so quickly and deserve to take time to be children and enjoy themselves! I would like to take my family on a 4-day trip to Universal Orlando (Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure). I would like to request a total of 5, 4 day 2-park park-to-park tickets for Me, my wife, and our three children. If anyone deserves to be blessed with such a trip, it is my Wife and children, because when I serve, they serve, and they hardly ever get the recognition! So, I want to show them how much they are appreciated, and let that know that their sacrifices, and their love for me, all military and law personnel, and their country has not gone unnoticed. I am wanting to take them in late December because my daughter's birthday is on December 23rd. And I figured that this would be a great Birthday for her, as well as a great Christmas for her and the rest of my family. I know this cannot make up for any missed time but hope that it can help instill a memory of joy for them to remember for years to come.

Hello to all who are reading this. I am Justin Clement and I am due back from deployment in Spring 2020. I'm asking for 5-5 day passes to Universal Studies in Florida for my family and I when I return. I have served for 12 years, and this has been my first deployment. Back home, I have a loving wife and three beautiful children (9,7, and 6) waiting for me. My wife is the back bone of our family as she stays home to care for all of them, including our middle son who is special needs and on disability. I cannot imagine how difficult this has and will continue to be on her and the kids. I want to take them somewhere we've never been (Universal) to reward them all for staying strong and thank them for supporting me through this deployment. Thank you for your consideration and for supporting all of us service members. Thank you never feels like it's enough but all of you are appreciated!

Family Vacation to Universal Studios

Apr 12th 2021

My name is SGT Luis Montillas. I have been with the Connecticut Army National Guard for 12 years. I am presently deployed in Afghanistan and I am scheduled to return from my 3rd deployment (once Iraq, twice Afghanistan) early fall. My family, two children 9, 16, and wife have supported me throughout the 12 years of service and multiple deployments, but this deployment has been the hardest for them. My son who is 9 has been affected by it the most. It has been hard for him to video chat with me over the last year, because it makes him sad that I am away and can not do the things we normally do together. I would love to be able to take my family on a vacation to Florida and visit Universal Studios for 5 days, during the kids winter or spring break in 2021. This would mean the world to my family as they have always wanted to visit Universal Studios, and most importantly to my son who is a huge Transformer and Jurassic Park fan. Thank you VetTix for all you've done over the years, and for the donors for supporting us service members. Thank you for your consideration.

Universal Studios Orlando for family of 5

Mar 1st 2021

Hello all! My name is Jamie. I am a husband and father of three. My wife and three kids has been my biggest supporters along the way. They have served just as much as I have in the past 15 years of my career, yet I do not feel they get nearly as much recognition. I would love to be able to show them my appreciation for all of their support these past years. To be able to take them on a post deployment vacation to either, Disney or Universal Studios, in Orlando would be the best way for all of us to reconnect, make new memories, and make up for all I have missed out on the past 7 months. Five tickets will be needed for myself, my wife, and three kids.

Disney Trip For my family

Feb 1st 2021

God Bless America, my name is SSgt Andrew Rux, I am currently deployed to the Middle East as part of Operation Inherent Resolve. I hope to return home around the middle of December if we do not get extended again. It has been my dream to take my wife and two children to Disney World for a trip they will never forget. Money has always been tight with a trip so expensive. My family has been incredibly supportive and strong during my deployment. I would live to show my appreciation by making their dreams come true. I am only requesting 3, four day park hopper tickets due to my daughter being too young to need a 4th ticket. Thank you to all that donate to this dream and others that are serving this great country. Its the generous people we fight for that make time in the military worth every minute. Your contributions mean more than you know to soldiers. Thank you.

Disney World Tickets for Son of Fallen Soldier

Dec 11th 2020

Growing up, it was always my dad's wish to take us to the Disney parks in Orlando. We were a family of 6, so it wasn't easy to coordinate or plan on an enlisted soldier's budget. When I was 13, that desire was made impossible, as my dad was killed in action while on convoy near Haditha, Iraq. Now, with two little boys of my own, my dream is to fulfill that family experience with my own young children. We would be greatly appreciative of any help to make that dream a reality. Thank you for your generosity.

Thank You Message From Hero:
I want to express gratitude on behalf of my family for the generosity of Vet Tix donors who granted us the opportunity to bring our children to Disney World and fulfill a dream my father had for my siblings and I as young children. Dad loved family time and was always excited to get on the floor with us as kids and show interest in what we did. He created memories I cherish and will never forget. I aim to be the same kind of father to my children, and this opportunity allowed us to create some beautiful memories as a family. Thank you so much.
 
Family trip to Disney World

Oct 25th 2020

I’ve always wanted to take my family to Disney World but with 3 of my 5 kids being special needs, money is a large obstacle. I’m currently on deployment and desperately want to take my family to Disney when I return from this long deployment. We are a family of 7 and this cannot ever happen without a granted wish as I barely make what we need to survive. I’m an E-4 been in service for 8 years and on a 15 month deployment to Iraq

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.
