George Strait concert

Nov 23rd 2019

My name is SSG Larry Schwab. I met my wife in Texas 31 years ago in 1988. I was stationed at Ft. Hood Texas 2nd armor Division. We had tickets to go to see George Strait in Temple Texas and had been dating for about 3 months. On our way to the Concert my girlfriend and I realized that we were in love and both wanted to get married immediately. We never did make it to the George Strait concert. Please know that we have no regrets. We would have traded anything to be together forever. We became so busy with raising seven children one handicapped And in 1990 being sent to Desert Shield which turned into desert storm and then being wounded in a mine field just inside Kuwait. I was awarded the Purple Heart but could no longer serve. We never got the chance to see George Strait. We've always wanted to, But never got the chance. Our handicapped son was born with Pradre Willie Syndrome He is now 26 and was declared a helpless child by the VA and will live with us his whole life. In 2016 I suffered a widow maker heart attack and now have to carry nitro with me. My wife Debbie and I would still very much like to see George Straight in concert. We are sure that if we don't get to see him soon we never will. It would mean the world to us as that is where we were headed when our life together started. ‎Sat ‎24 ‎Aug, ‎2019 – ‎8‎:‎00‎ ‎PM George Strait 08.24 - Troubadour with Ashley McBryde T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas NV Thank you and God Bless!

Hi everyone, I’m currently on my first deployment in Djibouti, Africa getting ready to head home after a long 13 months. When I left home my niece she was three and now she just celebrated her fifth birthday and started kindergarten. We love Disneyland and it would be awesome to be able to make up for two missed birthdays with her favorite Disney princess. I never realized how much you could miss your family!!

Disneyland Trip

Nov 22nd 2019

My name is SPC Steven Jaime. I am currently deployed in Afghanistan. As many of you know it’s beyond difficult being away from family but what has been the most difficult for me is missing moments of my boys growing up. Birthdays , holidays , you name it . I want to surprise my youngest son (my 4 year old) with a trip to Disneyland. I won’t be able to make it home for his birthday but at least I can try to make it up to him with this surprise trip. Make up for loss time with my wife and our two sons.

I would like to thank all of the donors that made this trip possible for my family and I. This trip would have never happened without you. To see the look on my children's face with excitement after finding out where we are going , it was all because of you. It was a family trip none of us will ever forget. Our youngest son is obsessed with Toy Story and believe me the gift card that we received was also a blessing because that definitely came in handy with all the toy story toys we bought with it. I just cannot thank you enough. My family and I are beyond grateful and we promise to pay it forward. Thank you again for your generosity. This trip would have never been possible with all of you. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts .
 
Disney World trip after final deployment

Nov 17th 2019

My name is MSgt. Derek Ludlow. After almost 20 years of service and five deployments (four of those within the past six years), I will soon be retiring. Coming home from this final deployment, I would love to be able to take my family to Orlando to visit Disney World. They have sacrificed such an incredible amount with me constantly being away, missing countless holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries, this would be an incredible experience and opportunity for us to reconnect as well as celebrate our last extended absence from each other. Thank you all for your incredible generosity in helping provide this experience for my family!

Hogwarts in the Fall Universal Studios

Nov 15th 2019

Hello, My incredible wife is a huge Harry Potter fan and has been waiting for our daughter to be old enough to enjoy the Harry Potter series. We are currently reading the series as a family, taking turns sharing the magical story. I would really love to take my family to Hogwarts to experience the magic in real life at Universal Studios Hollywood. We are requesting 4 tickets for myself, my wife, my daughter, and my stepson to visit Universal Studios this fall. My daughter has a fall break from school at the end of October, which would be ideal, but we are happy for the opportunity to visit anytime in the near future. I am a combat wounded veteran that lives off a fixed income and it can be tough to make ends meet with all of life's expenses, 4 tickets out of pocket adds up to a lot of money for my family and we would be extremely grateful to have this wish granted. We are a blended family and my wife and I have worked hard to create a strong family unit with our children having a 14 year age gap. We are always finding special ways for us to enjoy family time doing something that brings each of us joy. It is very important to us that as our children grow, we share traditions and build strong family memories to hold our bond over time. Laughing and having fun at Universal Studios as a family will be something we never forget!

My wife and daughter could have spent all day in Hogsmeade and Hogwarts, they loved the magic of it. My stepson and I really enjoyed the behind the scenes tour and getting to see behind the magic. Thank you for the memories!
 
A Disneyland Birthday

Nov 13th 2019

My name is Sgt Kalond Bushell. I started my military journey in 2009 with the support of my wife and first child Aja. My wife and I agreed that although I would be missing out on milestones with our daughter that sacrifice would be worth it. 10 years later I have two daughters ages fifteen and five, and a a son who is about to turn two. I missed most of the holidays with my family last year and all of their birthdays while deployed. Including my son's first birthday. I would like to surprise my family with a trip to Disneyland/California Adventure for his second birthday. Although I can’t make up for all of the things that I missed, I can start making new memories as a family. We would need four 3 day park hopper tickets to Disneyland/California Adventure.

My name is Sgt Miles, Hugh of the USMC. I am an 0341 mortarman. I have been deployed 4 times 2 combat tours and 2 tours to Okinawa. I have just gotten back from my last deployment of my career. I have 1 year left in the Marine Corps. With the fast pace of deployments and being in the infantry I have not had time to keep up with the 49ers. The last time I saw a game they were playing at candlestick park. The have recently moved to Levi stadium and a new practice facility. My wish is for me and my family to go watch a 49ers practice at there new facility then to be able to watch a game that same weekend at the new Levi stadium. I have been a die hard 49ers fan my entire life. I was able to watch their 2013 Super Bowl game while I was in Afghanistan at 3am. I stayed up all night to watch the game. It would be amazing if my wish would be granted.

Cowboys at Giants Football Game

Nov 4th 2019

My name is SFC ROBERT CULLARS. I have a wish to support my favorite team, the Dallas Cowboys. Super wish would be to see the Cowboys/Giants Game but I’ll be humble to sit and watch any game. I live in Pennsylvania and I am a true supporter of the NY Giants. Born and raised in Newark NJ this has always been my dream. I’ve served our country and pray for other soldiers. I had a son killed while in the US Air Force not even completely out of tech school due to a 1st SGT being double the alcohol limit. Besides that shocking trauma and disappointment I’ve experienced many casualties while on deployment. I have a family of 4. Recently separated in May 2018 from the Army.

Disney World- Princess Anna's dream - 5-day park hopper plus passes

Oct 28th 2019

My name is SSG Pamela Garcia. I am on month 5 out of 9 and by the time I return home it will be exactly 12 months of being away from my adorable Princess (Anna). Her dream for the past few years has been to go to Disney World. My wish is for three 5-day park hopper plus passes for Disney World. Being a single mom in both roles is difficult, just a week ago my Anna asked me if we can please go to Disney Upon my redeployment at the end of the summer, especially because I missed her last birthday and upon my return will be two in row. I love the military and serving my country but it is time to recognize also the time I have to be apart from my little one. My Mother Maria is an amazing Angel that has supported my dreams of being in the military and been an Angel taking care of my princess while I am not around. I would really appreciate if you can support me with our wish, it will mean the world to us. Sadly, not even two months after my return I have to go to another training that will enhance my career but will pull me away too soon from my princess, and so being able to take her to Disney World with Grandma (My mom) as she wishes will help comfort for a little-bit and make new memories for the ones missed. Anna will be 7 Years Old on June, I have not been there to accompany her to blow her candles, since her 5th birthday. Sometimes we think of how hard is t be away from our families and how sad it makes us, then yet how sad makes them when we are away not cherishing moments that are so important to all of us. Thank you for the support and helping us make this wish come true.

Disney World family vacation in Orlando, Florida

It has been tough on them and I would like to take them somewhere special this summer to help the transition with me being home. I think being able to take my family to Disney in Orlando, Florida would be a great family environment to get to know my kids again. My son is 4 and my daughter is 5 and they don’t really understand why I am gone. I wish for this experience to spend with my family.

My name is TSgt. John Warchol. I’ve just returned from my fourth deployment from Iraq. I’m Active Duty Air Force and I’ve been enlisted for 8 years. My son is three years old and I’ve already missed two of his birthdays and already tasked to miss another one this year. Deployments have been hard on my family. I’ve been deployed for my wife’s pregnancy, birth, and 9 months after he was born. It’s something I’m trying to work with him now for him to understand why daddy has to leave sometimes to protect his country. It’s difficult and I’m looking to see if there is a kind soul that would help send me, my wife, and my son to Disney World for any amount of time. We would be forever grateful by your generosity. Thanks for your time!

My name is SSG Tanner Kuth. I would love to attend the Louder than life music festival in September 28-30 with my fiance and my kids. We would be driving up from Georgia and camping for the event. I was injured in an IED blast in Afghanistan in 2009 breaking my neck, back, butt, and both feet and legs. Ultimately I lost my left leg below the knee and went 70% blind in my right eye.

Post Deployment Family Universal Orlando FL

Sep 19th 2019

My name is MSgt Cresencio Ocampo and I am currently deployed, I have served in the military for the past 20 years. Throughout this adventure my beautiful wife of 19 years has been by my side and we have welcomed our 4 daughters into the world (Family of 6). All they’ve known has been our military lifestyle; moving every 3 years, making new friends, adjusting to a new school, and depending on each other as we are often are away from family. Our daughters have been through multiple deployments and combined they have attended over 15 different schools. They have supported my decision to serve even if that meant missing birthdays, Christmas’, countless school events and holidays. There is no way to turn back back time, but I would love to show my appreciation to them for their sacrifices throughout my career by taking them to Universal Studios Orlando. My beautiful wife has been mom, dad, doctor, teacher, friend, and super women throughout the past 19 years and has always put our kids needs before her own, I would love to honor and appreciate her and her sacrifices as well! Thank you!

Chicago Bears at Soldier Field

Sep 5th 2019

Hello, My name is Staff Sergeant Dominic Bender, Retired. My MOS, 19 Delta (Cavalry Scout) During my last deployment our troop was tasked with disrupting insurgent operations in (RC-E)(Regional Command East). My platoon was operating in Ghazni's Aandar district when we ran into a complex ambush. I was in the turret gunning the MK-19 & 240B that day. My Truck was hit with no less then 3 RPG's and a bunch of small arms fire throughout the duration of the engagement. I ended up taking shrapnel to my head and neck and at one point was knocked unconscious. We ended the fight and made it back to our JCOP (Joint Combat Outpost). From there I was Medevaced to a few different field hospitals and eventually flown stateside where I spent 7 months at WRAMC (Walter Reed Army Medical Center) healing. Due to the injuries I sustained I could no longer be in combat arms. I then went on to a WTU (Warrior Transition Unit) and was retired after 14 years in. I miss the uniform but I love being home to watch my 3 children grow up. I have a boy that is 12, a daughter that is 16 and another son that is 18 and they are all HUGE Bears fans, as we are from Chicago. My ultimate Hero's Wish is a Bears/Packers game with my kiddos this Sept. 5th. Its crazy expensive to attend a Bears/Packers game in Chicago and that is why its my Wish! We thank you very much for any donations.

4 Day Park Hopper Disneyland Tickets for family of 6

Aug 1st 2019

Hi everyone! My name is MSgt Angel Palacios and I am currently deployed overseas. I am a firefighter in the Air Force Reserve as well as for the county in which I live. I was recently activated and deployed overseas for 9+ months. My wife Candice is a first grade teacher who works tirelessly to ensure that the needs of her students are met all the while caring for our two children, Brielle (9) and Brayden (11) and maintaining our household. My wife's parents have also shown true dedication and tremendous support for our family during this deployment by taking care of our kids before and after school while my wife is teaching. I would love to surprise my family with 4-day park hopper tickets to Disneyland when I return. Can you help me show my gratitude to my family for their amazing support by taking them on a post-deployment Disney vacation? I am requesting 6 tickets so that I may surprise my wife, her parents, and our 2 children with a trip to Disneyland when I return from deployment later this year. Like many deployed service members I have missed birthdays, holidays, and anniversaries this year and I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to reconnect with my family through this vacation to "The Happiest Place on Earth"! Thank you for your help in making my families dreams come true!

(4) 5-Day Disney World Park Hopper Vacation

Jul 28th 2019

My name is GySgt Christopher Greene. I recently returned from my 7th deployment and want to be able to make my little girls dream a reality and take them to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. My daughters have been asking to go for several years now, but we have yet to make it due to either the cost or timing due to military deployments. We are requesting (4) 5-Day Disney Park Hopper tickets to help offset the cost of our vacation sometime this summer. This would mean the world to my wife and daughters and I would love to be able to give them the vacation they have been asking for and be able to make some great family memories together. Thank you and God bless!

Yankees vs. Red Sox Tickets

Jul 26th 2019

My name is PO2 Ashley Montalvo. I am just getting home from my 3rd Deployment in the past 4 years. For my 31st birthday, the Red Sox are hosting the New York Yankees and nothing would mean more to me for my birthday than to attend the game with my girlfriend in the Green Monsta! To compound the fun/rivalry action, I am a HUGE Red Sox fan and my girlfriend is a Yankees fan, always a point of contention for us, but the love of baseball and each other always wins out in the end.

Hello, my name is SGT Michael Barton! I JUST got home from a 9 month deployment in Afghanistan. I would LOVE to surprise my family with a trip to Disney World! My beautiful wife has given so much to help me and my career and did amazing while I was away. Our son is 7 and the perfect age to go to Disney and truly enjoy the magic.

None of us have ever been to Disney World and we actually didn't get to have a honeymoon because we had to immediately PCS and then I had to deploy. I hope to give my family a real vacation with lots of magic and wonder. I am so grateful to be home again with my family and I would love to give them this trip and make some once in a lifetime memories.

Thank you VET TIX and all the gracious donors for helping us take our very first family vacation! Disney world was truly magical! The time spent with my family was a priceless gift! We are so grateful to have gotten to make these life long memories. Our son had an absolute blast and to see his happiness made us so happy. We rode rides, we ate so much food, we walked hand in hand through the parks, we took pictures, we tried new things, and we loved it. We got to watch the magic kingdom fireworks show from 15 stories up and it was truly magical to have my family in my arms while we watched magic happen. I am so thankful to have gotten this time with my family. It was amazing. We discovered our son LOVES Star Wars and we were able to bond over my own love of Star Wars with him. Thank you to every single person who made this happen. We are so very very grateful to you. We needed this family time together. It was truly a time for us to connect and just enjoy each others company. It was a beautiful experience and from it we feel closer than ever.
 
Post Deployment Disney World Trip

Jul 22nd 2019

My name is TSgt Badri Francis and I am currently deployed outside of the US. I am a Contracting Officer for the United States Air Force and have been serving for the past seven years. During this deployment I have missed two of my kids birthdays and my anniversary with my wife. I really want to be able to do something truly special with them after I return from this deployment. This is my second deployment in as many years, with a PCS and having a house built in between the two it has not allowed for a lot of quality family time. My wish is to have 5 4-day Disney World Park Hopper tickets (for my wife, three kids, and myself) so that we can enjoy this time together before the children return to school. Thank you all in advance for helping me provide this amazing opportunity to my family.

Family Disney World Trip

Jul 15th 2019

Hello, I'm MSgt Gregory Plumley. I just returned from my 2nd deployment to Iraq as an air traffic controller. We had a good deployment, I met some great people and learned a lot... Before I deployed my wife who is also AD was deployed to Ukraine and did not make it back before I left. We have spent quite a bit of time apart this past year. We have been married for almost 11 years and have 3 sons: Gage (8), Foster (5), and Thatcher (4). The boys did a great job holding down the fort with Honey (their Grandma) while we were gone which is why we would love to surprise them with a trip to Disney. Our wish is for a family trip to Disney World! We would love to have the opportunity for a stress free vacation to Disney World and stay at Shades of Green Resort. We would need 5 tickets as we have three boys! They are at the perfect age for us to all enjoy and remember this trip forever.

Aerosmith Deuces are Wild Las Vegas Residency

My name is Lt Bernard Mutz. I have been serving proudly in the USAF for the past twelve years. I just returned from a 7 month deployment. My wife has been a huge Aerosmith fan since childhood. She has twice had tickets to this concert and both times had the tours cancelled due weather. I would love to be able to surprise her with tickets to Aerosmith at MGM in Las Vegas in June 2019. She has been the rock and constant for our family and has filled the role of mother and father flawlessly to my two children, 5 and 3. I thank you for this opportunity.
