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.

Eric Church Tickets

Oct 25th 2019

My name is Combat Medic Richard Linville. I was wounded in Logar province, Charkh Distrct, Afghanistan on 01 Oct 10 by enemy mortars. During the deployment I always turned to music to get me through, or keep me going. During the rough days, I turned to Eric Church's music to help hold me together, so I could keep my brothers and sisters alive. I haven't been able to afford tickets because I'm a single father with teenage boys. Thank you!

Disney World family vacation in Orlando, Florida

Oct 7th 2019

My name is SSG Jason Gordon, I have been away from my family for almost 12 months now. This is my third deployment and the first that I have had children to leave behind. 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.

Disney World Trip (homecoming from Iraq)

Oct 1st 2019

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

Jul 9th 2019

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.

Disney World For Family (5-day park hopper passes)

Jul 2nd 2019

Hello everyone, My name is Petty Officer Zachary Kappler and I am the loving husband to my beautiful wife Rachelle with 4 amazing kids. We are all active duty in the Coast Guard. As most of you know we miss most holidays, birthdays, and almost everything import. This year and last year I missed the holidays due to deployment. I would love to surprise them and take them all to Disney World upon my return. As most of you know Disney is quite expensive and it would be a dream come true to take them all on a five day park pass excursion. I know nothing can replace missed birthdays and holidays, but Disney comes close for kids. Anything helps and the smile upon my wife and kids faces would be priceless. Thank you for your time and kind hearts! Love the Kappler

Hamilton at the Kentucky Center in Louisville KY

Jun 8th 2019

My name is Technical Sergeant Bradley Clott. I have served in the Air Force for over 8 years and I will be returning home soon from my 2nd deployment. I would love to take my wife Holly to see Hamilton. My wish is for 2 tickets to see Hamilton at the Kentucky Center in Louisville KY. Show runs June 4 2019 - June 23 2019. Any date would work, weekends are preferred due to child care. She is so deserving of a wonderful night out after single handedly raising our daughter, taking care of the house and caring for our beloved dog Lucky on her own these past six months. This would be a nice event after missing most of the Holidays. Thank you!.

THANK YOU so much for the tickets for my family to attend Walt Disney World! I could not afford that and it was an awesome time to reconnect with my family after being gone for a year mobilization. The girls had such an awesome time. Besides my wife, it was a first time visiting WDW for all of us. It was definitely a great time to build memories, and experience the fun of Disney. To the 4 donors; your generosity is fabulous. I could not thank you enough. Looking at the cost to buy one ticket was huge so I SOOOO appreciate the love and generosity that was showed to my family.

My name is SPC Justin Cox. I just returned home from my 4th Overseas deployment. This last deployment was in Iraq . I was gone for 11 months. During this time I missed all birthdays and holidays with my family. I have a wife and 3 daughters, Trinity is 13, Aubrey is 9, and Kylie is 8. I have missed many moments of happiness and would love to see the look on their faces on a family vacation to Disney World. We would need 5 tickets for our family to be able to attend this together. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my experience.

Post-deployment Disney World Park Hopper Plus for a dream come true family vacation

May 16th 2019

My name is CWO3 Damien Wieland. I am currently on my 11th deployment in the Navy where I have proudly served for almost 20 years. Despite only one shore duty thus far, I maintain that the Navy has been fantastic for my family which is why we continue to serve while sacrificing precious family time in the name of freedom. Through years of service, multiple deployments and a number of extended TDY’s my incredible family has missed my presence during countless birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas’ and other meaningful events. My wife has sacrificed the most yet continues to be the lighthouse this Sailor depends on. With multiple PCS moves and a complete lack of stability I consider myself both blessed and fortunate to have a loving and understanding support system at home; we are all proud patriots of this great country. That said, it would be amazing to be able to put huge smiles on my families faces with a dream come true vacation to Disney World. Disney holds a special place in my kids’ life as, when home, we sit down as a family for Disney movie nights when able and the memories from a once in a lifetime vacation to Disney World would be the icing on the cake to them. I would personally be ecstatic to share that the kind people of the world recognized their sacrifices and wanted them to have a dream come true vacation to spend time with mommy, daddy, and all of their Disney heroes. Thank you so much in advance for kindness and consideration to this loving and appreciative family. We are all proud to serve and will continue to do so for many more years to come!

Thank You Message From Hero:
A dream come true family vacation is the exact way I would describe our trip. Thank you Vet Tix and the Hero's Wish coordinators for all the work that goes into this amazing program and opportunity. As a service member who will hit 20 years of service this August I have nothing but gratitude for what the military has done for myself and the life my family and I are afforded. The time away from the family is truly the only hard part of serving and it was incredible to be gifted these lifelong memories. My kids, five and seven years old, had the time of their lives. Above all else, they were most excited to be at Disney World as a family. The memories will surely last a lifetime. My son and I have spent hours sword fighting (souvenirs he chose), my daughter and I made secret hand shakes while waiting for rides and my wife (who as a military spouse, the hardest job of all) was able to take off a few of her hats, unwind and relax while just being a mother. We enjoyed our time together so much and are forever grateful to have been given this experience. A special thank you to Madeline and Raymond, our angel donors, whose selflessly generous donations will never be forgotten. On behalf of my family, thank you!
 
Attending Chelsea Soccer Match at Gillette Stadium

May 15th 2019

My name is MSgt Ashley Shatkus, My husband and I were both deployed last year, while our 3 kids were watched over by my mom. My two older children are big soccer players and our family are huge supporters of the Chelsea soccer team. We learned that they will be playing a match at Gillette Stadium this May, and I would LOVE to be able to take my kids to watch their favorite team compete, as the likelihood of us making it to England as a family of 5 is pretty slim. I would love to get them as close to the action as possible to their favorite team and being able to create this memory with them will be something to cherish. With us being away for a little over 6 months, I feel we have so many memories to catch up on.

Post Deployment Family Disney World Trip

Apr 8th 2019

My name is LTJG Richardson and I just returned home from deployment on USS Arleigh Burke. Overall, I have been out to sea over 300 days in the last year and a half on three different ships. My incredible wife has held down the fort on the home front, taking care of our amazing children, giving birth to #5 on her own along the way. My family has been so strong through this time and I would like to thank them with a trip to Disney World during their spring break from April 8-12. My kids are aged 8, 6, 4, 2 and 7 months. This would be a wonderful gift tot hem to show them how much I appreciate their sacrifice. I am only requesting 4 tickets, as the younger two would be free and we can get the fifth ticket on our own. Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity.

Thank you to all those who came together to provide this amazing, generous gift to my family. We had a wonderful four days at Disney World. We got to defeat the Evil Zurg, fight Darth Vader after training with a Jedi master, dance with Belle (my wife Jenn is my Belle) and ride on a lot of fun rides. I loved taking my older kids on the big roller coasters and seeing their faces of fear and excitement all at once. It was a lot of work taking five kids on vacation, but we will look back on this with fond memories. I have had to be away from my family a significant amount of time the last few years and there have been many challenges. I have missed countless milestones, holidays and birthdays. My wife has given birth to our last two children without me. This trip was a fabulous way for us to celebrate daddy finally being home.
 
Disneyland for a family of four!

Apr 2nd 2019

My name is Cpt. Christopher Clark. I've been in the Army for almost 13 years and I am proud to be a part of it. I will be returning from deployment (my family's first) with Montana's 495th in a few months and we would love to take a little time at Disneyland. With a six year old thrill seeking son and a four year old princess, we can't think of a better place to reconnect as a family. All signs point to one of mine and my wife's favorite places - Disneyland. I would like 3-day Disneyland tickets for a family of four post-deployment.

Post Deployment Family Trip to Disney World

Mar 24th 2019

My name is SFC Jorge Vasquez Jr. I am an Infantryman in the US Army and have been serving for 13 years. I am currently on the downhill slope of my 3rd deployment. Over the past 13 years, between deployments and pre-deployment field time, I have been away from my family for more than four years, but this deployment has been the toughest. My children are at the age where they know Daddy is working away from home, but not exactly sure why. Every time I talk to my 4yr old he asks me “Dad, how many more hours until you come home”. They miss me terribly and I miss them the same. Although being a Soldier and serving OUR Country is my greatest honor, the hardest part is leaving my family. My wife, Tiffany, is my rock who provides the support I need to do what I do for our family. She is an unbelievable woman who maintains our household and takes care of our five children, Abigail-10, Gabriel-9, Ethan-6, Luke-4, and Andrew-2. She does it all with minimal support and while enrolled in college. My wife and I do our best to provide our children with unforgettable memories with road trips to see our families in Arizona and Texas respectively. I would like to make a Hero’s Wish to request (6) Disney World 4-day park hopper tickets for my family so we could make the biggest and best memory so far. Thank you for your consideration, God Bless!

Post-deployment family trip to Disney World

Mar 24th 2019

My name is Maj Andrew Kearl and I just returned from my ninth deployment. Between deployments and numerous TDYs I'm often away from my wife and young two children. Considering how much my family love everything Disney, I can't think of a better way to reunite with them and make up for the lost time than by enjoying a family trip to Disney World. Additionally our son has Autism so normal family trips can be difficult but given his interest for Disney (he's often on his tablet watching other people's posted videos of Disney World rides), I know this would be a trip he would love. Thank you for making this wish a reality and God Bless.

Thanks again from this service member and God Bless!
