Minnesota Vikings vs Green Bay Packers game

Dec 23rd 2019

My name is Tsgt Joye Lamme. I was deployed to the 455 EMDG Bagram Afghanistan from Oct 18 to April 19. I was away from my family for almost 7 months. I missed both my oldest's freshman and senior years due to deployments. I have 2 boys who have been amazing troopers. I'm lucky they are so understanding and adaptable. As a huge Minnesota Vikings fan I would love to be able to go and watch the Vikings play Green Bay at their home stadium with amazing seats! I have just got back from my second deployment to Afghanistan. All of my deployments have been during Football season. Thank goodness for AFN but we were limited on the games that they showed.

Huge thank you to all of the wonderful donors that made this Christmas one for the books. We had such a fantastic time (even without the win). Being able to be part of the SKOL chant was something I will cherish forever!!! Having my boys be able to come up here to Minnesota and spend time with family and then attend the game in such a beautiful arena... I cant express my gratitude enough. SKOL!!!!
 
Disney World my family for Christmas

Dec 23rd 2019

My name is Michael Emerick. I am a combat wounded veteran that served in Afghanistan. During my 16 month deployment I was involved in numerous firefights and sustained a traumatic brain injury after being shot in the helmet. I suffer from debilitating migraine headaches, neck and back issues, double/blurred vision and PTSD. After my deployment I decided that I didn't want to raise a family in the military. I was honorably discharged and moved to Texas to go to Universal Technical Institute. I graduated at the top of my class only to realize that I could not sustain long hours of working underneath vehicles with my back and neck issues. I am now a full time Dad taking care of our five children while my wife works to support our family. Christmas time with five children is incredibly chaotic. We love our large family, but sometimes the joy of Christmas is overshadowed by gifts. We decided we would love to take our five children to Disney World to create lasting memories rather than give them gifts. However, Disney World tickets are much more expensive than we could've imagined, especially for a family of seven.

Take my Family to Disney World

Dec 20th 2019

Hello my name is Nichelle. I am a wife and mother of three amazing children. We have suffered tremendous loss over the past couple years. 3 years ago, our house burned down, and we lost nearly everything. We have since been building back up. We are grateful and thankful to have survived the ordeal. Late 2018, we did a military move to be closer to family. Shortly after arrival, I was given a short notice deployment and had to deploy 2-weeks later. Shortly upon arrival, I received word that my 19-year-old brother died. I had to break the news to my children and rush back home to coordinate and ensure all his funeral arrangements. We were devastated. Since being reassigned home, my brother was always spending time with us. After the funeral, I returned to duty to finish my commitment. I'm currently on my second deployment and I try to speak to my kids every day. Everyday my heart breaks because without fail, they tell me how much they miss me and want me to come home. I missed them too. My kids Jade (7), Mya (5), Eli (5) are so resilient, they've been through so much at such a young age. I want to be able to do something special for them and show them how much I love and appreciate them and the sacrifices they've made through my service to this country. My children, always talk about going to Disney World. I would like to help make that happen for them when I return from deployment. It's just what we as a family need to reconnect and have fun. My family graciously requests 5 tickets.

Thank You Message From Hero:
Dear VetTix and Gracious Donors, Thank you so much for granting my wish! It was exactly what the family and I needed to disconnect with the stressors of life and reconnect with each other. I never thought that I would ever be able to take my children to Disney World. Thanks to your generous contributions, I was able to do just that. My kids and I had an amazing time at the most magical place on earth and there's no better season to visit Disney World than right before Christmas. The experience was nothing like I could ever imagine, it was far more than I ever expected. The park was breathtaking, as it was decorated so beautifully. Going to the park allowed us to create memories that will last a life time. Growing up, my family was never able to afford taking me and my brothers to Disney World or Disneyland and I wanted to be able to do things for my children that my family was never able to do for me. I want to help give them the opportunity to grow, travel and experience things that were unattainable for me at my young age. All of which is part of the reason I joined the military, to have a better life than I did, to work hard to remove some of the barriers that made growing up with a single parent, incredibly challenging. You all made it possible for me take my family and as an added bonus, I was able to pay all costs to surprise my mother with the trip as well. My mother has always dreamed of going to Disney World and as mentioned before, she never had the means to make it possible. With careful coordination with her medical care providers, she was approved for the trip and was able to receive treatment just minutes from the park. The trip was not only a surprise for my mother, but for the kids as well. Upon returning from deployment, I spent months trying to conceal my excitement for the surprise of a lifetime. There are no words to truly express how thankful I am for all the donors that made this wish possible for me and my family. This incredible opportunity is one I’m sure we will never forget. Thank you so much for blessing me and my family with tickets to Disney World. I hope to be a blessing to others in the future. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays & Happy New Year! Nichelle
 
The Polar Express Train Ride

Dec 18th 2019

I'm currently deployed and come back at the end of November or beginning of December. My kids favorite Christmas movie is The Polar Express and my wife and I think our 4 kids would absolutely love to actually ride on the Adirondack Scenic Train and their Polar Express trip. It would be great to not only get my family in the Christmas mode but also to reconnect as a family. I'm requesting 6 tickets because my wife and I have 4 kids and we dont want to leave anyone out.

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!

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.

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 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.

San Francisco 49ers game Ultimate Fan Package

Nov 11th 2019

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.

Medieval Times Queens Royalty Package

Hello my name is SSgt. Daniel Bennett. I am with the 108th Air national Guard Wing, communications flight. I came under rocket/mortar fire 43 times, a helicopter I was in was shot at and there was a suicide bomber at the gate of one of the FOBs where I was stationed. My family and I would love to be able to attend a show at the Medieval Times and enjoy the Queens Royalty Package. My family included my twins Logan and Alicia (both 14), alone with my Girlfriend and her children. Tamra (My Girlfriend), Kaitlyn (15), Ellie (13), Abby (10), and Rose (7). During my deployment Tamra helped watch and care for my children as if they were her own. I would like to get 8 tickets for this show so that everyone will be able to attend.

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!

Hi everyone! My name is 1LT Mark Aldrich and I am currently deployed overseas in the Middle East. I’m an MP in the Michigan National Guard and a Police Officer in Michigan. I’ve been deployed in the Middle East for 10+ months. My wife is an RN who works tirelessly to ensure that the needs of patients are met all the while caring for our three children and maintaining our household.

I am requesting 5 tickets so that I may surprise my wife, and our 3 children with a trip to Gillette Stadium when I return from deployment later this year.

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!
