Kiss Freedom To Rock Roadie For A Day

Sep 9th 2016

Whom It May Concern, Hello. I am a U.S. Marine who will be retiring after 20 years of active duty at the end of this year. I have served in Iraq and Afghanistan and have been a long time KISS fan. I was extremely happy when I discovered KISS are playing at the Richmond Coliseum on September 9th. I have only seen KISS in concert one other time. That was just before I joined the Marine Corps in 1996. I saw them in Lexington, Kentucky, near my hometown. I have decided to stay in Richmond, Virginia upon retiring from the Marine Corps and want to seize the opportunity to close out my military career by coming FULL CIRCLE and seeing KISS ALIVE one more time! I have spent 20 years of my life as a U.S Marine. I have traveled the world and lived in so many places: California, Japan, Thailand, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. So much blood, sweat, and tears have been shed over those years and to think KISS were there for me in the beginning and they are still stronger than ever today! That is really amazing to think about! I have been a fan since 1983, when I was 11 years old. I bought the best tickets available for the Richmond show, which are in the second row, center stage, but I recently learned about the "Roadie for a Day" promotion for the Freedom to Rock Tour and how KISS have asked service members to join them on stage in certain cities. I would be very grateful for the opportunity to be Roadie for a Day at the Richmond, Virginia show on September 9th. Would you please consider me for this opportunity? I am readily available to participate any way I can! Please feel free to email or call me anytime. It would be an honor! Sincerely, Gunnery Sergeant James Eric Puckett

Thank You Message From Hero:
I would like to sincerely thank Cindy, Michallie, and Hiring Our Heroes for making this dream come true! Thanks also to Jason and everyone at VetTix! I was able to participate as a "Roadie For A Day" for my favorite band, KISS on their recent "Freedom To Rock" tour. It was an amazing experience and one that I will never forget! It is wonderful to know that there are organizations like VetTix and Hiring Our Heroes that are dedicated to helping veterans! One thing I did almost immediately after the concert was to visit VetTix online and make a donation to another veteran whom I thought could use some support! It took me a few days to figure out how to post this thank you, but believe me when I say I am very appreciative to everyone involved in making this dream come true! Here is a picture of my fiance and I meeting KISS just before they went onstage! Semper Fi! James
 
Carolina Panthers v. Denver Broncos

Sep 8th 2016

My name is SSG(P) Judah Africanus. I joined the United States Marine Corps at the age of 17 to support my then 2 year old son. At 18 I married my high school sweet heart and mother of my son. We have 4 children total 2 boys 2 girls(Lamar 19, Kiwan 14, Mackenzie 13, and Kayla 12). After 4 years in the Marines I decided to get out and try civilian life. After a while I started to miss the military so I joined the NC Army National Guard. However that did not satisfy me. So I went Active Duty Army. My eldest son and I are huge fans of the Panthers, and would love to opportunity to see them take on the Denver Broncos for some Thursday night football on 8 September 16. This game will be extra special because I will get to see it with my son before he goes off to college.

Magical Getaway to Disney World

Sep 4th 2016

My name is SSgt Matthew Peluyera. I am currently serving in the USAF and on my first deployment. While I have been serving my country for the past year my wife is serving our family which consists of our two and a half year old daughter and our two large dogs. My wife has dealt with potty training, dogs going through surgery and recovery, working from home, working outside of the home, taking care of our house, helping a toddler through deployment, volunteering at church, toddler tantrums, holidays and family gatherings alone and all while going through her first deployment as well. My wife works tirelessly to make sure that our family is taken care of and most days without a break or help of any kind. I want more than anything to be able to give my wife a break. A break from dishes and laundry and taking care of everyone but herself. She loves Disney, as does my daughter and has always wanted to stay at the Fort Wilderness Lodge. Being able to take my wife and daughter on a four night trip to stay at the Fort Wilderness Lodge would not only allow my wife time to relax and unwind but also allow our family time to bond and grow closer without the distractions of everyday life. Over the last year I have been in Training or Deployed for both Mother's Day and my wife's birthday - the two times of year that I would normally get to spoil her. This trip would help me to show her how much she means to me and how much I appreciate her supporting me so that I can serve our country.

We had so much fun meeting characters, riding rides and enjoying the delicious snacks. I'm so grateful to Vettix and all of the donors who helped me to give such an awesome gift to my family. After being away for so long it was wonderful to be able to have fun with my family and to watch my daughter make so many memories!
 
UFC 202 in Las Vegas

Aug 20th 2016

My name is Sgt. Jesus Vasquez Jr but I am better known as "Chuya". I served with 2nd Force Recon BN. which became Marine Special Operations Command (MARSOC). I deployed with the 26th MEU in 2003 to Iraq and then again in 2005. I also became a jump master. In 2006 my life came to a halt when I had a hard landing while doing a parachute free fall training exercise. My leg was fractured and they had to install a plate and several screws. I got a staph infection from the hospital and ended up with osteomyelitis, a bone infection. After over 20 limb salvage surgeries my doctors recommended that they would have to amputate the leg due to severe infection and loss of blood flow to the leg. On October 1, 2010 they amputated my leg. The Center for the Intrepid in San Antonio worked hard to get me into a leg. Seven months later I was able to return back home to my wife and kids. During all this time my wife sacrificed and stayed by my side to see me through my recovery and still does to this day. She has been my nurse, my best friend and without her I do not know where I may have been through all my health and emotional problems. I was medically retired in February of 2012 after my medical conditions forced me to give up my passion, serving. I would love to go see an MMA fight in Las Vegas. This is not only about the fight but a chance for me to take my wife who also serves as my caregiver to do something special. We have four kids ages 14,12,7 and 2 and she deserves a well needed break. She loves Las Vegas and watching UFC with me, and this would mean so much to her. I also have a sister there who I have only been able to see a couple times and could visit with her.

Bass Pro Shops NRA. Night Race

Aug 20th 2016

My name is specialist Christopher Brunelle I am a Iraq war Purple Heart Vet. I have let the PTSD get the best of me. I was injured in 2005 when a suicide bomber attacked my hummer and blew us up. My gunner was killed in the explosion. I was to proud to let anyone help me or take help from anyone. I tried to do it on my own. I just about let the PTSD get the best of me. It cost me my marriage but I'm ok with that part now. I was at a very dark place in life didn't want to be here anymore. One day I was thinking what to do and how to do it, when one of my little girls came out and said daddy just want to say I love you. I still deal with the nightmares and flashbacks but I'm use to that now. My wish is to attend the night race at Bristol Motor Speedway. I am asking for 3 hot passes and race tickets for that day because I don't drive that far anymore. For the longest time I have been unable to get out and go places, with the help of some good friends and brothers I am able to now.

Disney World Vacation

Jul 25th 2016

My name is TSgt Luis F Mejia and last summer my family Alex (wife), Anthony (17), Valerie(14), and Natalie (4) were set to take a trip to Disney World. Instead I ended up deploying to Africa and Afghanistan, so we had to put our trip on hold. This trip was special for two reasons, first it would be our last family vacation before my son goes off to college and second it would be the first time my youngest daughter visits Disney World. I am humbly requesting 5 park hopper tickets for Disney world so we can share this vacation together. I have been in the military 17 years and would not trade the experience for anything. Thank you for all you do for our veterans!

Justin Bieber

Jul 18th 2016

My Dads name is Sgt. Ian Thomas Sanchez. He died when his M Gator utility vehicle hit an IED during a security sweep. My name is Jesse and In 2011 I was diagnosed with my first brain tumor. I had to spend a very lonely two months in the hospital and a few years of rehab. Having an acquired brain injury changed my life in every aspect. My Mom who is chronically very sick could not stay with me and my Dad was KIA. I had a nice roommate, but felt sad I didn't have my Mother to stay with me. I used to Listen to Justin Beibers Song " Pray." It is what got me through that nightmare. Although I have another brain tumor, the prognosis is better than the first kind I had. Every day is a struggle with my health. Due to a lot of medical expenses, I can't afford to see Justin Bieber on his tour. I would love to take a friend with me and my Step Dad (my Mom would never let me go alone).

Disney World vacation

Jun 23rd 2016

My name is SSG Smilowska, I have been on active duty for 18 years and served multiple combat deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. Since than I have returned home and married my wife and had four beautiful children Charlotte (5), Savanna (4), Jameson (2), and Abigail (1). I have been married to my wife for six years and she is the glue that keeps this family together. I went through the medical evaluation process and was determined that I could remain in service with limited capabilities. I am hoping to retire at 23 years and spend as much time with the family as possible. I have never been to Disney World and neither has my wife. I would love to take my kids and my wife together so we can all experience it together for the first time and see the priceless looks on the kids faces when they meet Aerial or Elsa. Thank You Vet Tickets for trying to make this wish come true. Even if we do not get this wish We truly enjoy the site and will continue to support for a long time to come.

Thank you Vet Tickets and My Hero's Wish Disney World Vacation and all the Donors who made this trip possible. I never seen kids with bigger smiles than they have right now. This is truly a magical place. I don't know who is having more fun though me or the kids. Still have two more days left and lots to do.
 
Six Flags Fiesta Texas

Jun 15th 2016

My name is SGT Francisco Cisneros and have honorable served active duty in the United States Army for 7 years. I am married to the most amazing woman in my life and have two amazing sons (2 & 4yrs). I am currently deployed in East Africa and was previously stationed in Germany the previous 18 months. Throughout the entire time abroad, I have been away from my wife and kids. My 4 year old son suffers from severe asthma, food allergies and eczema. Due to the winters in Germany (which is what severely triggers his asthma and eczema) and the care he was receiving back home, we elected to not to risk his health and keep my family in the states. With me being away, my wife had nobody to share the responsibility of raising two boys by herself, especially one as fragile as my 4 year old. Multiple emergency room visits, being flown to other hospitals and constant late night cares have really taken a toll on her. She does so much and has sacrificed her health for our kids, and I can't do anything but wish I could be there to take the responsibility from her. This wish is not so much for a service member, but for a military spouse since they endure they're own hardships as us deployed. My wish would be to take my entire family to Six Flags once I get back to the states. My wife has always been a huge fan of such and my kids have yet to see an amusement Park. My younger son has always been a very healthy, and my four year old is doing A LOT better now! I truly do appreciate the chance to do something extremely special for my wife and boys, and thank my wife for the mother she is. Thank you for the support.

Walt Disney World

May 10th 2016

I am an Iraq and Afghanistan veteran. I was injured during my last deployment while clearing a Taliban training camp. My wife and 3 kids have been through a lot with their dad being deployed and watching me struggle with a traumatic brain injury and PTSD. When I got home, I tried to move on with my life but couldn't. I quit my job as a paramedic at Vanderbilt University in the Emergency Room, lost my Paramedic License because I was unable to remember drug dosages and other critical things in medicine. I ended up in inpatient at the VA. There I admitted for the first time I needed help in 2013. It was the worst day of my life, but also the best as I began to get help. Now I would be able to go with my family to Disney World as before PTSD kept me from being around people and was ruining my life. I would love to give back to my family for what they have given me in allowing me to serve my country as a Combat Medic in the U.S. Army. I desire to bless my family as they have supported me through this tough time. Disney World in Orlando Florida for the 5 of us for 4 days is my wish. For Jaden 13, Natesa 12, and Kole 11, along with my wife and I to hang out together in Disney World would be a dream for all of us.

Birthday Celebration at Disney World

Apr 30th 2016

My name is Msgt Johnathon Johnson and this year I deployed two weeks before my oldest son turned 15 and returned after my youngest turned 8. I would like to take them to Walt Disney World to Celebrate with a park hopper. For most of my career I have been away for my wife's birthday however this year I was home for hers and missed our sons. I would like to make up the time missed by celebrating at Walt Disney World. They have been troopers, enduring two deployments during an 18 month period plus the typical stateside TDY's. I love my family and cherish the time I get to spend with them. I can't think of a better way to celebrate not only my return but also the moments we missed during my deployment. My son turns 16 in April and this would be a great way to celebrate!

Disneyland for my Princesses

Apr 24th 2016

My name is Sgt. Justin Bond. I was born in Kings County rejoined the US Army after our homeland was attacked on September 11, 2001. After being shot through the center of both knees in the battle of Fallujah Iraq and losing my left leg above the knee I spent most of my 6 and 8 year old girls lives in the hospital and going through surgeries. This last year was the worst as I ended up with stomach and colon cancer from the burn pits in Iraq and had to go through chemo and more surgeries. I have wanted to take my Disney fans, my girls to Disneyland for several years but couldn't. Now they are a perfect age and I am surgery free for the rest of this year other than 1 small one... I checked on tickets and realized that the tickets alone are very expensive. I am unable to come up with the funds for this to be able to spoil my family and take a trip and can't see how I will ever be able to afford that while my girls are in school on a disability income and continuing my medical issues so I was told about this site from Disneyland and decided to give it a try...

Family to Disneyworld

Apr 21st 2016

My name is ETC Christopher Green. I am married with 4 wonderful children, two boys ages 19 and 17, and two girls ages 13 and 10. I have spent the last 16 years of my Coast Guard career missing several birthdays, holidays, and other special days through-out the life of my children. The last three years have been the most difficult due to being stationed on a cutter and completed 9 deployments, keeping me away from my family for 18 months out of those three years. We recently had to rescue my oldest son from an unfortunate event which left him homeless and is now living with us again. I have always put my kids first whenever it came to our family's finances and therefore I have never taken them anywhere but to see other family, which was usually in conjunction with transfers. I am now stationed in Florida where I get to spend plenty of time with my family again, but still dream of getting to take them on a vacation. Being close to Orlando at this point, I would love to be able to take them to Disney World, especially before my oldest gets back on his feet and decides to move out again, but the combination cost of tickets, hotel, and food, especially for a family of 6, is still extremely high. Thank you Vet Tix for providing opportunities to our service members and all those who donate to help fulfill these requests.

Post-deployment Family Disney World Trip

Apr 15th 2016

My name is CPT Nathan Lubba, I have been deployed for the past six months in East Africa and prior to that twelve months in Afghanistan, missing the holidays and my daughter's birthday. My wish is for a family trip to Disney World to spend some much needed time reuniting with my family, wife 8 year old daughter and 3 year old son. My wife not only cares for my 8 year old daughter and 3 year old son, but works as a kindergarten teacher taking care of 20 other children. This would be our first trip to Disney World and something to make our time reuniting that much more special. We hope to be able to spend 4 days at the park with park hopper passes. This would be an amazing trip and something my kids will enjoy and remember for years to come. Thank you for your time and consideration.

My Military career has resulted in missing a lot of important days and events over the years. My Bride of 31 years has been great at dealing with this. What I would like to do is for us to be able to Celebrate our 31st Anniversary at Disney World in Orlando Fl. I have arrange R&R during this time frame. As like most of my deployments this one is going to be another long one. Looks like 18 plus months. I would like to make this time in our lives very special. We want to create new memories together at one of the most happiest palaces in the world. As our children are all grown we are going to create our own memories starting on this date. This would be so great for my Bride to be able to start our next 30 plus years together in this Magical World.

Sorry it took so long to say thanks. After i returned I was sent back out were I had no access to my internet accounts. So here goes. I want to thank all those who donated to my wish. My Bride and I had a great time making new memories for our 31st anniversary. We spent four wonderful days park hopping. There was even one day that Kim wanted to go to Animal Kingdom. On the day that we did this I commented to her that I traveled 12K miles just to come back to Africa at Disney. On our Anniversary night we were at Epcot were we stayed to see the wonderful fireworks that they have there. On our way out the Magic Kingdom started there fireworks and we were able to see most of that as well from Epcot. As all the pics that we took I left at home I am unable at this time to provide a pic. However at a future date I will do this. Again I want to thank VetTix and all who helped make our 31st Anniversary one that we will remember for a life time.
 
Disney World Visit for Family

Apr 3rd 2016

My name is Capt. Robert Anderson. We will be traveling to Florida this year for spring break to see our family, and would like to take our children to the Magic Kingdom to meet some of their favorite characters. In particular, we would like to have our son with Autism, Ross, meet his favorite character from Toy Story, Mr. Potatohead. I have been in the military for 13 years and owe a great deal of my success to my wife and children. Unfortunately, with five children, affording a day visit to the park is just not feasible at this point. My children (11, 7, 6, 4, and 3) have faced significant hardship as Army children, and I would like to reward them with a surprise day at the Magic Kingdom. 7 tickets to the Magic Kingdom is just not feasible for our family right now.I would like to surprise them with a visit to the Magic Kingdom to honor them for all they have done for me.

Thank You Message From Hero:
Thank you so very much for giving us the opportunity to enjoy Disney World together as a family. We don't get very much family time, and the days we spent at Disney World will be a wonderful memory for all of us. Above all, your generosity gave us the gift of time spent together, something rarely afforded to military families. Please know you have changed 7 lives for the better, and we could not be more grateful.
 
Wrestling Tickets Wrestlemania 32

Apr 3rd 2016

Greetings, My name is Melvin. I am a Purple Heart wounded veteran. I've been on numerous deployments and of course any veteran that can relate will tell you it can take a toll on you physically and mentally. PTSD and depression should never be taken lightly. I'm a huge WWE fan. My only wish is to attend WWE WrestleMania 32 in Dallas and/or WWE Monday Night raw in San Antonio. I've never personally attended an event such as this. My son would always ask me if he can ever go and experience what that's like but I can't afford that opportunity whenever they're in town. It's never nice to see the frowns on his face every time WWE is within the vicinity. It would mean the world to me to see his facial expression to have him attend a live event such as this. I know things like this happen only once in a lifetime but the memories will always be priceless. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this letter. Thank you and God Bless.

Thank You Message From Hero:
I cannot thank you enough and we are forever grateful to Vet Tix and all the individual donors who made it a reality for my son and I to attend Wrestlemania 32 . It was the greatest and most exciting experience to be live and in person and witness history. My son was telling all his friends in school and this left one of the most happiest of memories that will forever be near and dear to our hearts. I literally shed a few tears after my 7 year old told me it was the best day in his life. Once again thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you to Vet Tix and all the individual donors once again
 
DISNEY LAND VACATION FOR MY FAMILY

Feb 28th 2016

I have a family of 7 so at times it is hard for me to afford to take my family to do fun things like this so I'm hoping this will allow me to do that for them. I 'am requesting 6 three day hopper tickets to Disneyland in Anaheim Ca. 6 three day hopper tickets to Disneyland in Anaheim Ca for me, my wife, and five kids. Didn't ask for the last because my youngest is 1. Me and my wife have been married for 2 years now but we have been together for 5 years I have completed 2 deployments since being together both for a total of about 12 months first to Afghanistan then to Japan. My wife has been a trooper taking care of 5 kids while I have been away and I KNOW that I couldn't do it and all of this was less than a year after having my son and having very major complications and doing so, so much so that she almost died. Thank you!

People like you guys really show us veterans that people really do care about us and it will definitely not be forgotten. P.S. WE ARE HAVING A GREAT TIME!!!
 
Tickets to a Laker game

Feb 19th 2016

Hi my name is SPC. Omar Herrera. I am huge fan of the Lakers yet never been to their games. As Kobe plays his last games, I would enjoy going to one of his games before he retires. I love the infantry. Never for a second doubt what I've done. Since I have left the military after being wounded I never found that fulfilling feeling. After being married to my wife, she changed my world. I would love to take my wife and to this event.
