Hershey Park PA - JULY 2014

Jul 25th 2014

My name is Chief Petty Officer Kerri K. Ayo. My wish is for my family of five to enjoy a day at Hershey Park in Pennsylvania. My husband who is an active duty Marine going through a medical retirement and three kids Megan (11), Ethan (11), Jazmin (2) and I recently moved from Pensacola Fl to Norfolk, VA where I deployed with the USS Harry S Truman.

Our family vacation to Hershey Park was awesome! The park is huge with lots to do for kids of all ages. Between the rides, the Hershey store, and making our own personalized chocolate bars, it was easily one of the best experiences we've had as a family. We plan on going back again and appreciate the opportunity to have gone. Thank you Vet Tix! Sincerely, Kerri Ayo

I want to take my Family to Walt Disney World

Jul 10th 2014

My name is SFC Antonio Corona. I am currently deployed in Afghanistan, and am burned out with deployments. This is my second tour here since I last left here in 2011 along with previous tours in Iraq. I try to put on a smile in every deployment. My pain goes out to my loving wife Sabrina, whom I left home alone with my four boys. My boys ages Antonio III(10) Jason(8) Jake(2) and Jayden(1). Yes I left my wife with 2 toddlers, my last deplyment in 2010-11 she was pregnant with Jake, only for me to return home and then we had Jayden. So I been pretty busy, I cannot recall the last time we had an actual full family event. I should return home sometime early in 2014. I would love (6) tickets to Disney World in Orlando for all of us, but if (4)is sufficient, I could pay the rest out of pocket. Thank you for the support and God bless.

Thank you Vet Tix and all the donors who made our wish possible. We truly had the best vacation ever.

Family Vacation to Disney World

Jun 20th 2014

My name is SGT Yascavage, Joshua. I am currently deployed in Kuwait. I have tried to make the best out of every day. It has been a very trying last few months due to my wife Brooke, having heart issues and constantly in the hospital. We have two kids a girl Stella (4) and boy Josh Jr. (1). I missed Christmas, Thanksgiving and will be missing both their birthdays this month. My pain goes out to my loving wife, whom I left home alone with the kids away from her family, and having a hard time trying to juggle the kids and her medical appointments. I should return home sometime in May 2014. I would love (4) park hopper tickets to Disney World in Orlando for all of us. We have been trying to plan this for a while but can only afford the hotel and never the tickets. Thank you for the support and God bless.

St. Louis Cardinals v. Tampa Bay Rays Baseball game.

Jun 11th 2014

My name is Joshua Hall and I am currently serving in the United States Air Force on my third deployment to Afghanistan within the past two years. I will be returning to my duty station in Northwest Florida in a couple weeks and my family will be coming down to welcome me home. My father is retired military having served 20 years in the AF and my brother is also currently serving. I have been playing baseball since I was three years old so my family has grown up around the "diamond", I also played 3 1/2 years of college baseball. Now I play competitive slow pitch, once I return from deployment anyway. I believe I use it as my escape from life stressors and also it helps me return from combat zone to being back home. Again, I would like to thank you for even having the chance to tell you a little about myself. We are originally from the State of Missouri and are all huge St. Louis Cardinals fans. I would love to be able to take them to a game against the Tampa Bay Rays while they are in town. We would require 5 tickets to accommodate everyone in my immediate family but I am beyond grateful for anything I may receive.

I am beyond grateful for the tickets and the memories you created. Thanks again.
 
Disneyworld for Purple Heart Family

Jun 7th 2014

My Name is Kevin McMains and I served 11 years and 50 days in uniform. I was a Casualty Liaison NCOIC. I am now retired due to my injuries sustained in Iraq. My story today is not focused on my many overseas tours, but my recovery from being paralyzed by a 120mm rocket blast. We were 3 days shy of coming home from our 16 month deployment to Iraq, when I was hit with a rocket. Unfortunately I did not have my gear on. It twisted my spine like a candy cane. I was going through a rough time emotionally, having to deal with my physical limitations, and a wife that just did not understand what I was going through. She filed for divorce, after 15 years of being together and 3 beautiful daughters. I was a complete wreck. Everything in my life was upside down and heading for rock bottom. One day I had given up and attempted suicide. With the blessings of God, I failed. I did not know what PTSD even was until this moment. I woke up the next morning and realized, I am better than this. My oldest daughter asked me when I was coming home. I told her it might be a long time. The Army was all I knew. I joined when I was 17. My family has a long line of military men and women. The Army saw my progress and placed me in the Warrior Transition Unit, to see what my status would be. I was in the WTU and never could get 100%. While recovering in the WTU, I was a full time daddy, full time soldier, and full time college student. I graduated with a Bachelors of Science. After a long year and some change they decided, it would be best for me to retire. So now I am retired and helping other vets in my small community gain the understanding that even when things are rough, there is that light at the end of the tunnel. No matter how hard it is, we can do it, and they don’t have to do it alone. I am an example to show, I have been there, I understand. I now can walk with the assistance of just a cane and sometimes without depending on the level of pain and mobility. Every day brings a different feeling because of the nerve damage and the body trying to heal itself. Shortly before retirement I met Jewel. She has been my rock to stand on when the ground has been weak. She learned about how to become a caregiver and quickly assumed this role. She did not have a clue about the military when we met and learns new things every day. She brings a daughter and son into the relationship, which brings our kid count to 5. I love kids and would not have it any other way. We just lost our home to a house fire, but we are doing okay. We have been through worse in our lives. I would like to take my family on their first vacation. We already have plane tickets but do not have tickets for Disney World. We would like the park hopper so that we can come and go as we please. We need 7 total sets of tickets as I have 5 kids and a wife.

George Strait (King George)

Jun 7th 2014

My name is James Bolling. I have been a huge country music fan since I was little kid. George Strait has always been someone I could listen to his music and relate to him. While Deployed if I play his music it seems to lift the stress off my me. His music calms me and helps me relax after a long day. Listenng to it helps me able to sleep in deployed locations. I am currently deployed until Feb and George put out his final concert series. And having a final concert June 7th at the Dallas Cowboy Stadium in Texas. I have never been able to attend one of his shows due to conflicts with the military or family and this may be the last chance.

Disney World Family Vacation

May 28th 2014

First before anything else thank you for your time in reading this. My name is CW2 Larry Wesgaites and I will soon be returning from Afghanistan. As with all deployments this one has been long and I look forward to coming home to see my wife and family. My family and my wife's family are split between PA and FL and have never had the opportunity to spend time with one another. I would like to get everyone together down in FL and for a few days take the PA gang to Disney as they have never been there before. I am requesting 6 tickets if possible to help offset the high costs of getting everyone down there and taking them out. I thank you for your time and I hope you have a great day/night.

Park-Hopper Tickets to Disney World

May 23rd 2014

I am CPT William Carroll. I am happily married to my lovely wife, Diana. We have been married for 6 years. We have two wonderful children, my daughter Rose (4) and son Liam (9 months). I left for this deployment when Liam was only 2 weeks old and I barely knew him. I am currently deployed to Afghanistan and will be returning in a couple of months. We have booked a vacation to Disney World at Shades of Green (05/23/14 - 06/01/14). Going on this vacation would allow me to spend some time with my son who I really haven't had the chance to meet and it would mean the world to my "Princess" Rose. This would also be a wonderful time to relax with Diana and have fun together as a family. I am asking for 3 (2 adult & 1 child) of the 5-day park-hopper tickets for my family. I have already paid for the reservation at the hotel, but with Diana in her last semester of college money is really tight. Thank you for supporting the Troops!

Visit the family and take them to the Angels VS Yankees games

May 5th 2014

Hello everyone, My name is Walter Vizcaino. I've served in the Marine Corps on active duty for almost 17 years. I'm stationed in Okinawa Japan executing a two (2) year unaccompanied tour. My family is still in California and I miss them very much. My beautiful wife is holding down the fort and is taking care of our 12 year old daughter "Gabriela" and three year old son "Elijah". The burden of taking care of the house and kids followed by the daily hour long trips for school and soccer has taken its toll on her. She's definitely due for a vacation and a relief. Furthermore, I'm a huge baseball fanatic especially when it involves my Yankees. Due to the multiple deployments, special duty assignment, operational tempo and location of duty stations I have not been able to see my Yankees play nor spend the much needed quality time with the family. With all that said, I would love to treat my wife, family and myself to several days in Anaheim while watching the Yankees beat up on the Angels. According to the MLB schedule they face each other May 5th, 6th and 7th, in Anaheim. Acquiring tickets for these games is always tough so I'm asking for this wish of four tickets to each of those games. I would surprise my wife with other comforting gifts during my stay. Igniting this wish was caused by missing and being so far apart from my family followed by MLB's greatest Captain Derek Jeter waving the retirement flag. All this created a sense of urgency to watch him play and visit my family. Any assistance you can provide would be heartwarming and greatly appreciated. Thanks for being there.

Good morning, Just wanted to leave my testimony in appreciation for a granted wish by the "New York Yankees-MLB, Rocky with the Yankees, four individual donors and "Veteran Tickets" that blessed my family and I. I've been overseas on unaccompanied orders and I was afforded the opportunity to take leave. In doing so, I contacted Vet Tix regarding a wish to see the Angels vs Yankees in the 2014 season. The Yankees are my team and I had never been able to attend a game due to operational commitment. Non the less, this would be Derek Jeter's last stand in Anaheim so I had to attend with the family so we can see one of the greatest Yankees play. The game was awesome as we were able to see Jeter hit a homerun and be presented a surfboard as a token of appreciation by the Angels. We all would like to say thanks to the New York Yankees-MLB, the four individual donors and "Vet Tix" for blessing us with this wish as we spent an amazing day at the field together as a family.

Help me Take my Son to Walt Disney World

Apr 28th 2014

My name is Jessica Fleurimond. I am currently serving overseas on my first-ever deployment in my 13-year tenure in the USAF. I had to deal with a lot of obstacles that were getting in my way to prevent me from doing what I wanted to do and that was to serve my country overseas. I will be returning home after 6 months (one month of training and 5 months deployment) towards the end of March 2014 and would love to be able to take my son on a Disney Vacation. When I asked him what he wanted for his 8th birthday which is in April 2014, he said he wanted to go to Disney. The possiblity of being able to fulfill my son's wish would be totally amazing. I have never been away from him for this long and it has been the toughest thing to deal with. My spouse has been doing a marvelous job taking care of our son, puppy, and house while I've been gone and my son has been doing really well in school and I couldn't be more proud of them along with serving the country that I love. I'm kindly requesting 3 (2 adults/1 child) of the 3-day park-hopper tickets for my family. If someone is able to help us with this wish, I would be eternally grateful!!! Thanks to all those who support and love us from afar and thank you for this opportunity!

Family Birthday Trip Southern California City Pass

My name is Andy Marquez. I was injured in Iraq therefore receive disability compensation. At this time My fiance stays at home to care for our three beautiful children ages 1, 5, and 9. Our only income is my disability compensation as well as my GI Bill compensation. My children's birthdays are in December, January, and March. I would really like a day dedicated to each one and would love to make it a reality for them. My wish would be for the Southern California City Pass for two adults and two children. My youngest wouldn't need one because he is an infant. It would mean a lot if I could provide a day of happiness for each of my children. Our income is only enough to pay our rent and bills so I do not see us being able to pay for something like this but would mean a lot if someone could do this for our family. Thank you in advance.

New Era Pinstripe Bowl

Dec 28th 2013

My name is Technical Sergeant Sean A. Landolt. I will be returning from my 6 1/2 month deployment on the 10th of December. On the 13th my family and I will be flying to NY for 3 weeks. My wife and I were married about a month before and we never got to take a honeymoon. We are planning to spend a few nights in the city as a sort of mini-honeymoon. It just so happens that my mother's birthday is on Dec 28th: the same day as the New Era Pinstripe Bowl. My family are all die hard Yankees fans as well as Notre Dame fans and I just found out that Notre Dame would be playing in the game at Yankees stadium. This would be an amazing birthday gift to be able to give my mother and be an awesome end to a great trip to the city with my wife. My wish, if possible is for 8 tickets to the New Era Pinstripe Bowl game at Yankee Stadium. This would allow myslef, wife, our 2 children, my brother, his wife, their son (they are flying in from Hong Kong) and my mom, the birthday girl, to go to the game. I know 8 tickets is an awful lot to ask for. I would be greatful for whatever is possible. This is the chance of a life time for my family and with me being gone as long as I was, I would love to be able to surprise them all with this event. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my request.

49ers v. Seahawks Game

Dec 8th 2013

I am GySgt Vela, I am on the last half of an 8 month deployment. I deployed to Afghanistan on March 22, 2013. I then volunteered to extend and remain in the Middle East. I currently serve as the SNCOIC of MCE-K. During my deployment, I have missed many special events such as Birthday's, Mother and Father's Day, Wedding Anniversary, Holiday's etc. My family is huge San Francisco 49er fans. I would love to be able to take them to go see the 49ers vs Seahawks on Dec 8. This is also the same weekend as my birthday. I can't think of a better way to reunite with my family than to take them to see the team they love, with the man they love.

Andrea Bocelli (Classical/opera)

Dec 7th 2013

My name is Sgt. Joseph Albrecht. I have a daughter that will turn 6 in October 2013, she has grown into Classical and Opera music since she was a baby, just like I have. My goal is to take my daughter with me to hopefully watch Andrea Bocelli live in concert one of these days. I am separated from my daughter right now because I am stationed in 29 Palms, CA and my daughter is in Houston, TX. I think having a father and daughter time watching this concert will be a moment that will be remembered for a long time.

Alabama Football Tickets (any game)

Nov 30th 2013

Hi my name is Christopher Lane. I am a Specialist in the US Army. I am currently deployed but will be home soon and just in time for football season. I am a HUGE Alabama fan. ROLL TIDE!!! I am from South Alabama and I have never been to a Alabama football game. My wish is to go to an Alabama vs Auburn game more then anything but I would settle for ANY Alabama game. I am stationed at Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah, Georgia and from Magnolia Springs, Alabama so a home game or one in Ga. or close by those areas would be best so I can drive. I would love to take my whole family, I miss them a ton. It will be 9 months since I have seen them. I have a beautiful wife named Carrie and two teenagers, a 19 year old son and a 14 year old daughter. None of them have ever been to a game either and they all love Alabama just as much as I do. I am hoping this can be something we can do as a family after I return home. I know 4 tickets is a lot to ask for but I was hoping maybe since it's college football someone from the school would donate them. If I can't get 4 I would at least like to take my wife with me. I don't think it would be as much fun alone. Don't get me wrong I would still love 1, I just think it's better when you have your family with you especially when you haven't seen them in almost a year. Anyway this would be so awesome and something I would never be able to afford on my own. I just can't imagine a much better ticket to request than to watch my all time favorite and best team in the world play.

Thank-you for making it possible for my family and I to attend the Iron Bowl. Even though my team didn't win, it was an amazing game and a great way to spend time with my family after just returning home from a very difficult deployment. It really was amazing! I honestly can't thank you all enough for making this possible. This is something we would of never been able to do on our own and to just be able to get away and have a fun, stress free time and not think about what's going on else where and watch my family as their eyes would light up was truly a blessing. Thank-you so much, oh and ROLL TIDE!
 
Disneyland Dream

Nov 16th 2013

My wife and I are both active duty and we've missed many birthdays, holidays and special moments. This deployment has been really hard on my children. I've missed my oldest daughter's 10th birthday, my youngest daughter's birthday and her first day of kindergarten and last, my little boy started walking. I would like to take my mother-in-law as well as she has been a rock and helped so much when both of us are TDY or deployed and has been priceless. My wife and I've missed so much over the years and I really want to take my family to Disneyland. I just want to give my children a vacation and see the biggest smiles on their faces. I think this would be a dream come true for all of us. Thank you for all the wishes you have answered and the support you provide us. This trip is planned for when I come home from deployment. I would like 3 Adult and 3 child 4-day Park Hopper Disneyland tickets for: My spouse, myself, mother-in-law, daughter (10 years old) daughter (6 years old) son (16 months). Dates: 14 -18 Oct 13.

To our donor...thank you doesn't begin to convey our gratitude to you. Our family trip to Disney was priceless. To see the smiles and hear the screams of joy from my kids was something I'll never forget. My 2yr old was horse the second day after screaming "Mickey!!" And all the other characters names over and over. He nearly ripped himself out of his stroller to get to them. It truly was an unforgettable and magical experience that never would have happened without out your support. Thank you, thank you...thank you.

Thank you Russel!! Thank you Arizona Sports & Tourism Authority!!! Thank you VetTix!!!! Literally the best birthday present ever. I couldn't imagine spending the Marine Corps birthday any other way. The salute to the troops given was heartfelt. As much as I appreciated the tickets and salute, I honestly feel my family appreciated it more than I do. I feel the family sacrifices more than the warrior. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for making my family feel that their sacrifices have not gone unnoticed. I can't thank you enough for the perfect outing. Pics of my sons and I with one of the worlds finest role models, the Pat Tillman Memorial Statue and one of me displaying the great seats. Thank you again.

I have been a lifelong Packers fan and would love to make this the first football game to take my wife to. I have never been to a Bears VS. Packers game because of how big the rivalry is and would love for this dream to come true. Thank-you to all of the donators that make these dreams come true! God bless the USA!

O'Reilly Auto Parts 300 NASCAR race

Nov 3rd 2013

My name is Eric Lebs. I am currently deployed to Afghanistan and my wife of 17 years and our three daughters are holding down the fort while I'm away. I have never attended a NASCAR race before and would enjoy doing this with my family when I return from deployment. My wish is to be able to attend the O'Reilly Auto Parts 300 NASCAR race in Fort Worth Texas. It would be great to get tickets to this race for all 5 of my immediate family. However if it works out for only 2 then just my wife & I can attend.
