Family Vacation to Walt Disney World Orlando

Jun 28th 2015

I am SSG Anders, I would love to take my family to Walt Disney World Orlando after I return from my current deployment. I have four awesome children with my beautiful wife whom I have been married to for 13 years. I have only got to spend 10 months in the states since 2009 and cannot wait to return from this deployment. The baby is 2 now and I have missed most of her life. I cannot wait to spend some time and get to know her. I would need 6 tickets due to having four children and myself and the wife. Thank you!

Disney World Orlando

Jun 22nd 2015

My name is Robert Fleming and I served 12 years in the Army. I was recently medically retired as a Sergeant First Class in 2014 due to injuries that I sustained in combat. I have had multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan where I received 2 purple hearts. My service, deployments, and injuries have taken its toll on my wonder wife April who I've been married to for 11 years and she even quit work and nursing school to take care of me in the hospital while we were dating after I was injured in Iraq. After my injuries and hospital stays I regrouped and toughed it out for another decade, and more deployment. While this was satisfying personally for my career it took its toll on my body and my family as I wasn't there for them and I was gone the entire first year of my oldest due to deployment. I have three wonderful boys that are 4, 3, and 2 that are great. My oldest and youngest are autistic and though it is challenging they make our world brighter and better. They love the Disney channel and any and all Disney characters. We've never got a chance to take a family while I was active due to responsibilities, deployments, training, and medical issues. It actually is a wish and it would be a blessing if my family could go to Disney world in Orlando Florida. I am requesting and wishing that my family of 5 be able to go to Disney in Orlando for 2 days. Thank you and God bless Robert

To all the wonderful donors who gave to ensure that my family's wish truly did come true. We are truly grateful and are forever thankful. It truly means the world to spend time with family after having a career that pretty much guaranteed the opposite. Your donations ensured three boys had the best week of their life, and ensured that my wife and I finally got to take a trip that was always put off. Thank you again to Vet Tix and to the amazing donors and organizations that participate to take care of veterans and their families. God Bless v/r The Fleming Family
 
Disney World in FL

Jun 5th 2015

I just recently returned from a 5th Fleet deployment on a Naval Patrol Coastal Ship. I have been promising my little guy for a few years now that we would take him to Disney World to meet Mickey and his other favorite characters. I would love to fulfill that promise and take my wife and 5 year old son to disney in Florida while on my post deployment leave. I have 30 days until I check into my next duty station and school. My window to go would be between 25Jan-06Feb 2015.

We were floored to have received three four day park hoppers for Disney Parks in Orlando, FL. The gesture was much more than expected from our original request of one day at Disney. Michelle and Vet Tix made it possible to finally on our promise to take Connor to Disney Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom. He said it best when he said "Its the greatest day of my life". I really appreciate everything that Vet Tix does for our troops and for donors like Michelle for paying forward such a fulfilling experience. Thank you so much for making my Families Summer!
 
Chicago Bulls Playoffs 2015

May 8th 2015

My name is Daniel Acosta. My Wish is to attend a Chicago Bulls playoffs game with my family. My children are huge Chicago Bulls fans and all play in an extracurricular basketball program. They had a chance to meet some of the players at a fan event this past winter and now are completely hooked on the team. It's been a plan to attend a game together but is usually too expensive. I feel that attending a Bulls game would been an amazing experience for my children and a great opportunity to have a family bonding moment.

Take my family to Disney World before my surgery

Apr 12th 2015

Hi there, I'm SPC Jason Walker. I'm a former Marine and current Soldier in the Army. On my third deployment I stepped on a landmine that resulted in the instant amputation of my left leg and my right leg was blown apart. I fought to keep the leg and after 6 months and tons of surgeries I learned to walk again. I've been doing better but my limb salvage has been having increasing problems and on April 22nd I'll be having surgery on it again. This time it may result in the amputation of my right leg above the knee. Before I'm back down for a while I was hoping that I could take my wife and kids to Disney World in Orlando, Fl. I'm requesting 5 four day hopper tickets. My family has been my life line, and I'd love to allow them a chance to have fun and get away for a few days. They have been the reason I take each step further on my recovery. Please help me give my family a memorable vacation, thank you.

Az Cardinals Tickets

Dec 21st 2014

My name is Master Sergeant Ryan Reed. I married my high school sweetheart Meredith at 18 and joined the United States Air Force in 1998. We have two sons, Greyson and Ashston who are 10 and 12. I've been deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and the Defense of the Arabian Gulf for the last 7 months and will re-deploy next week back to Hill AFB in Utah. After our re-integration period, we are planning to drive home and spend Christmas in Phoenix for the first time in several years. The event I was hoping to attend is the Cardinals vs Seahawks game at University of Phoenix Stadium on the 21st of December. I've been going to Cardinals games since I was 8 years old when they first moved to Phoenix in 1988, but have only been fortunate enough to attend a handful of games since joining the Air Force in 1998. In England, I woke my two young boys at 3am and literally cried while watching the Cardinals beat the Eagles to finally go to the Superbowl. Both of my sons, now 10 and 12, continue to wear their jerseys to school in spite of a fair bit of teasing from the local kids...and in my 16-year career, I have yet to meet another Cards fan who I could watch a game with, or really understood what it means to have been a fan all these years (although that did work out in my favor in 2001, when the Cardinals Cheerleaders came to visit us in Kuwait) I would love nothing more than to have an opportunity to take my incredible family to a game, and experience that amazing feeling of camaraderie that comes from being surrounded by thousands of cheering Cardinals' fans!

NFL DALLAS COWBOYS HOME GAME

Dec 21st 2014

My name is SGT Newell, Catherine & I am currently deployed. This 9 month deployment has been mentally and physically exhausting due to living in an austere environment, experiencing multiple IED blast traumas, closing down the camp while retrograding equipment, building a new hospital in a different locations, organizing/setting up a new hospital, & lastly missing my family. I have been happily married for the the past 8.5 years. We have 3 beautiful children, Will (15), Khalil (9), and Aniya (6). We are a dual military family & we have been separated a few times, thus causing hardship on our family. I have missed my wedding anniversary, kids & husbands birthdays & summers with kids. During the duration of my deployment, my husband Kyle, has held the fort down as a single parent caring for all 3 children, while still fulfilling his active duty obligation. We have not been on a honeymoon in 7 years. I think it would be grand if I could take my family on an excursion to a Dallas Cowboys Home game. Football is a big deal in our household. It unites our family and friends. Everyone wears their football jerseys & it's game on! My husband has been a life-long Cowboys fan since he was a child. The kids are following in his foot steps. Since the new Dallas stadium was built, Kyle has always dreamed of attending a game. I would like to show a token of my appreciation by taking him to a particular game- Dallas Cowboys v. Indianapolis Colts on 21 Dec 2014. I am requesting that particular day due to me still being currently deployed & I should be redeploying during Thanksgiving. This would be a great welcome home & holiday gift. I would love to see the surprise look on my family's face. I am asking for 4 to 6 tickets due to us having a family of 5, & if possible having my husband's close friend attend as well. I would be ever so grateful for whatever amount of tickets you all could offer, even if it's just 2 tickets. I appreciate the opportunity & thank you all for even considering my application.

I am going through some financial hardships from transitioning to the civilian world. I barely have enough to pay for my bills but I am making it. The event I'm requesting for my wish is for my family to have a Disney Christmas vacation. I always saw package deals at a Disney resort with tickets. I never stayed at a resort before I never saw a Disney Christmas Parade and I would love my family to have a special Christmas. It would bring joy to my family because I know Christmas is going to be real short this year and my daughter been doing real well in school and I would like to reward her with this trip. Also my son birthday is on DEC 23 so it's a perfect b-day gift for him. Thank you for your time reading this. I know this is a long shot but asking doesn't hurt.

Disney World trip Dec 2014

Dec 4th 2014

In Dec 2012 I left my 2 boys, 7 & 3 to deploy to Afghanistan with NMCB 15. I returned home in Oct 2013 jut after my boys birthdays. in Jan 2014, less than 90 days later, I left again to deploy back to Afghanistan with NMCB 25. When I told my boys that i had to leave again it was very difficult for them to understand why i was leaving when I just got home. I asked them what special thing they wanted to do when i returned home and they said they wanted to go to Disney and meet Mickey Mouse. I promised that we would go and I am also taking my parents who have handled my finances while i was gone. With their help I was able to get out of debt and they will help me with the boys while at Disney. I will be able to take my oldest on the big rides while they watch my youngest. I am expecting to be home mid Nov 2014 and will take my family to Disney 4-10 Dec. I am looking for 2 senior, 2 children and 1 adult park hopper tickets for 5 days.

It would be awesome for me and my family to so see the Cowboys vs Eagles on Thanksgiving day. I have a wife Tamara and 3 children Keonte' age 21 in College at Salem State, D''leonn 19 waiting for next semester to start college at Prairie View to be a nurse, and my baby son Tyrone Jr 16 attending Bowie High School in Arlington TX. I have never attended a Pro Football game and would love to attend the Cowboy vs. Eagles game, however any home game for the Cowboys would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Donor for granting my wish. The game was awesome and my wife and my children loved it. Being at the game was nothing like watching the game on TV. The ambiance was unbelievable. Even though the Cowboys lost we enjoyed every minute of the game.
 
Disney World November 2014

Nov 21st 2014

I wish to take my three children and wife to Disney World. I am requesting 3 military salute 4 day hopper passes (For my wife, son, and me. Two of my children are free). I was a police officer for 10 years, but in 2013 I was fired after attending annual tour. The department was angry that I took time off of work. I finished my bachelor of science degree while deployed to Afghanistan, and was accepted to law school before returning home. I was unable to treat my kids to a fun vacation after my return as we had to load everything we had into a U-haul truck and drive to Missouri from Utah. My hope is to become a JAG after school ends in 2017. This led to me volunteering for a deployment to Afghanistan to make sure that my family had a roof over their heads. Since returning, we have moved half way across the country and I have gone back to school. My hope is to provide a better life for my family by getting a degree. My wife and I do not work. We are surviving on the GI Bill stipend (70%), and the small amount that I get from drill weekends. I fly from Missouri to Utah to attend drill once a month. We will be in Orlando for a military conference and would love to take the kids to Disney World while there. Thank you for your consideration.

Thank You Message From Hero:
Our family is so very grateful to all of the donors who made this trip happen. Thank you to Jennifer, Colby, Tim, Karen, and especially Leslie and Thomas! This kids has such a fun time. We had heavy rain on Tuesday, which meant that instead of being one of the busiest days of the year, the Magic Kingdom was nearly empty (it was a warm rain and we were prepared with head-to-toe gore tex and a stroller cover). Our oldest daughter cannot stop talking about meeting Ariel, her favorite princess. Our son is a die hard Star Wars fan, and loved meeting the characters and riding on Star Tours. My wife and I are so happy that we were able to spend a few days at Disney World with our kids. The weather was warm and it was good to get away from the cold winter. Thank you to all the donors, and thank you Vet Tix! God bless everyone who made this possible, and God bless America!
 
Take my girls to Disney World

Nov 9th 2014

After 12 years on off with the Marine Corps I was injured while running a scout team through the city of Fallujah, Iraq. I spent 7 months back and forth from a hospital in Bethesda, Maryland only to have the VA lose all my medical records. I've had a battle nonstop since 2008 just to get a proper claim submitted. I've battled PTSD and lost my best friends due to this epidemic. I finally feel as if I'm in control of this and heading in the right direction being a good husband and father. Still being run through the system with the VA I was supposed to be at 100% since I'm not allowed to work due to a spinal issue and brain injury. So I found a Purple Heart site that offered to send my family to Disney World as long as I saved money for our flights. Well it turned out to be a scam and like that the site was pulled. I don't want to let my family down and would appreciate any help. Our plan was to stay at Disney for a few days then drive to Space Coast and stay a few more days. Any info even on discounts or to help save any money would be greatly appreciated.

Patriots Game

Nov 2nd 2014

My name is Richard Olson. I was medically retired out of the military after stepping on an IED. I received a number of injuries severe PTSD, severe TBI which resulted in me learning how to walk and talk again. Ankle injury, jaw and teeth injury, shoulder injury, burn on my face and and severe tinnitus. During my 13 years in the army I have trained so much, been on 5 deployments and then after arriving home I had hospital stays and time alone for personal recovery. I am trying so hard to find my place in my family and bond with my children who I have missed out on their lives so much. I have a 13 year old daughter, a 11 year old son and a 9 year old son with down syndrome that I am trying to get to know and understand. I am originally from Massachusetts and many times I missed Patriots games on TV and opportunities to go. That is one thing everyone in my family loves, It would mean the world to me to be able to go to a Patriots game as a family and enjoy that experience, that would be a priceless gift to me. I also want to do this as a thank you to my wife as well for standing by me and raising great kids, taking care of me when I was at my worst and needed her the most, she is so self less and has been the back bone of this family, I know she would never stop smiling to be able to watch a game in person. I have lost soldiers and friends, it is something I battle with everyday I have good days and bad days and I feel bad for my family that this is the way I am now. I am asking for 4 tickets to see the Patriots play. My wife advised me that our son with downs syndrome unfortunately will be over stimulated and not be able to handle it. God Bless.

Take My Family to Disneyland

Oct 30th 2014

My name is Spec 4 David Richards. I have a beautiful and very supportive wife who's Native American and her name is Blue. She is one of the greatest things in my life. We have been blessed with 4 children: David, Dawn Marie, Heather and Kellianne. I served in Vietnam from Dec. 1967 thur Nov. 1968. I was a dog handler. I walked point on an ambush and Recon squad until I was hit on Oct. 20th 1968. My dog saved the squad from being ambushed. The second time she saved a squad from being ambushed she was awarded a Bronze Star for her contribution. I'm a service connected disabled veteran. My wife and children put up with a lot abuse while I was servicing my tour in Nam. When I returned to 'The World' due to this not being a popular conflict, Americans elected to express their anti-war feelings both with words and by throwing objects; on those that served and their families. This experience led me to ask myself if this was America? I served to honor my uncles memory who died after being captured by the enemy in the Korean War. I believe in freedom for all and respect all individuals. I would like to show my family the other-side of the American spirit by taking them to Disneyland. I would like 6 Disneyland 2 day park hopper passes (tickets), But we would be happy and appreciative of any cost relief offered. We plan on going in Oct. 2014 on the 30th and returning home on Nov. 1st. God bless those that have served, their families and God Bless America. Thank you for your consideration.

Thank You Message From Hero:
Disneyland Ticket's There are Not Enough Words To Say Thank You. My family and I would like to express our gratitude to Veteran Tickets Foundation and their supporters for fulfilling our wish. Its difficult to express our thankfulness, you know how when you write or say a word over and over again It starts to look odd, and you start to wonder if you're doing it correctly, but the only words that come to mind again is "Thank You". We really appreciate the efforts put forth by the personnel at Veteran Tickets Foundation. Without these caring and hardworking individuals, people like me wouldn't be able to participate in such wonderful events. This organizations kindness enables families to bond and create moments that last a lifetime. Thanks so,so,so much. The Richards Family
