Past Hero's Wishes

A Special Trip to Walt Disney World

Feb 17th 2019

My name is MSgt Christopher Hess. I am currently deployed overseas until next year in Niger supporting the base's MWR program. When I get home I would like to surprise my family with the opportunity to spend 4-5 days at Walt Disney World. Over the past three years me and my family have been working through the after effects of a car accident my wife suffered. She was struck from behind and suffered a concussion, which resulted in her being off work for awhile. We have been grateful for opportunities provided by Vet Tix to go to events but I would like to use my one Hero's Wish for my wife and two daughters. I would be grateful for the opportunity to give them 4-5 days that they will never forget.

New Orleans Saints Playoff Tickets

Jan 20th 2019

My name is CPT Matthew Rongey. I am coming up on the end of a 9+ month deployment, flying and overseeing operations in combat under Task Force ODIN in Afghanistan. During this time, my fiancee has been taking care of things back home, working full time, and planning our wedding. On top of all of that, she has been so strong and supportive of me while I'm away. My wish is to attend the NFC Conference Championship game, if the Saints play at home on 20 January. My fiancee and I have never been to a NFL playoff game, and we are both big football fans. Fulfillment of this wish would help me show her my gratitude.

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

Jan 1st 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

Utah Jazz Game - Ultimate Experience

Dec 25th 2018

My name is SPC/CPL Jimmy Wiles. I have been disabled for 14 years since being hit by an IED in Iraq, I was in a hospital bed for over 4 months in Germany following my injury in the field. I have been in pain for many years. I will be undergoing major surgery on my right knee in January 2019. My left knee also will require surgery. I will need extensive rehab to get back on my feet as the surgery is unprecedented for my age. On July 7, 2004 in Iraq, my life changed, I was the driver of the lead vehicle in the convoy returning to our operating base when an IED was detonated and injured myself and 3 others. I was able to guide the vehicle to a stop safely, with extensive damage to my right leg and offer support the others with cover fire until help arrived. Not a day goes by that I don't remember the blast and its affect on my life. My wish would be to see my favorite Pro Basketball team the Utah Jazz. I have always gone to Jazz games in the nosebleed section and never had the opportunity to appreciate a game from the lower levels. My dream is for my wife and I to be able to see our favorite team play from some really good seats

Universal Studios Wizarding World of Harry Potter 4-day passes

Dec 17th 2018

My name is SFC Kevin Dewey. I have been active duty Army for 22 years and just completed my 13th deployment. This deployment was extra hard on my wife and daughter as they gave up everything to join me at my new duty station just months before I left for Iraq. My wife has been unsuccessful in finding a job in our new town and has been worrying constantly about every little thing. She supports me in everything I do without complaint. My family shares a love of everything Harry Potter. It is my wish to take them to Universal Studios and Universal Adventure Island to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at the parks. I would love to be able to take them during the Christmas break as last Christmas was an exceptionally difficult one for many reasons. Christmas is supposed to be a time for families and I want to be able to take mine on a dream vacation to allow my wife time to relax and spend some much needed fun time with my daughter. My wish is for 4-day park hopper passes to Universal Studios. I have a family of 3 including myself. Thank you Vet Tix and all your donors for your continued support.

Harry Potter World After Deployment for family of seven.

Dec 17th 2018

My name is CPT James Houston. Our family has just survived a year long deployment. This included a move across the country for my wife and five teens while I was away. They are all avid Harry Potter fans and I'd love to create a memorable, relaxing experience to have a delightful time together with one week for all 7 of us at Orlando Universal Studios' "Wizarding World of Harry Potter". Our kids have always dreamed of going but we have never been able to make that happen. Would love to have this trip be our Christmas this year. Thank you so much.

Disneyland park hopper passes for the holidays

Dec 15th 2018

My name is 1LT Steven Sexton and I am currently deployed with the 79 Infantry Brigade Combat Team in support of Operation Joint Guardian. As it stands now, I will be home just in time for Christmas, therefore my wish is for 4 Disneyland/California Park hopper tickets so I can celebrate a special holiday season with my family when I return. Once this deployment is completed; of my first 29 months in the service I will have been away from my family for 16 of those months. Through it all, my wife has been very supportive each time I have had to leave for deployment, schools or state emergency, all while holding down a full-time job as a first grade teacher and taking care of our two energetic daughters. So this wish is not just for me but for my family who I believe deserve a special gift for the holidays. Thank you.

Thank you so much VETTIX and all of the donors that made our trip possible. We had a wonderful Disneyland vacation! It was great catching up on lost time from the deployment. Especially grateful are my two girls as they were able to fill their autograph books with Disney characters and meet every princess at the park because we were there for four full days. My wife Lindsey wants to thank VETTIX and all the donors as well as she was able to meet the Disney character she never got to meet as a child, Mary Poppins! I can’t thank you enough for fulfilling our wish. It was an experience that we will never forget.
 
Minnesota Vikings Game

Nov 25th 2018

My name is SSgt Luke Jones and I am currently deployed. I have a lifelong dream to take my wife and my parents to see a Vikings game in Minnesota. We are HUGE Vikings fans and it would be a dream come true. Since I was a child I’ve always wanted to beat the drum or blow the horn before the game. November 24 is my wife’s birthday and I would love to take her to the November 26 Sunday Night game vs the Green Bay Packers. March of last year my brother passed away unexpectedly and at the one year mark I was deploying. It has been a rough year on my whole family and my biggest wish would be to bring smiles to my parents faces.

Disney World - Post Deployment with my family

Nov 25th 2018

I am CW3 Dennis White, a member of the Indiana National Guard with the 38th Sustainment Brigade, currently serving in Kuwait in support of several operations. I have been blessed to serve my State and this great Nation for over 23 years. I am married to Angela and have three boys Shad, Jaden and Brenner as well as a sweet girl, Brayleigh. All of my kids and especially my wife, have made countless sacrifices in order for me to serve. I have missed countless anniversaries (2 back to back these past years), birthdays, and a majority of my son's Senior year in High School. I also coach sports for my hometown school, Paul Hadley Middle School, as a lay coach and have missed this years sports teams and the ability to coach and mentor young student athletes. I really want to represent them and my family well while serving and want to take my family to Disney as a thank you for their enduring sacrifices they make so that I can do the job I love. I would love to take the family to Disney World after my deployment. The past year even for the train up has been non-stop with over 8 weeks on and off of training and now this deployment. Would love to be able to spend time with my family of 6 at Disney World. We have had to table trips because of many other time demanding events and need some away time as a family. It would be a true privilege to receive this Wish of 6, 5 day Armed Forces Salute tickets in order to treat my family to a well deserved get away. Thank you for your consideration and thank you for supporting this who serve.

Ohio State vs Michigan football

Nov 24th 2018

My name is SGT Bruce Messer. I am born and raised in Ohio and have always been a Buckeyes fan. I've never in my life been to a game in person. I've always dreamed of going to a game and of course the ultimate game would be against our biggest rival. I have friends I would love to take. I'm a disabled veteran of combat and can't work. I am married with 6 children. 4 of which are still in school and two that have graduated, one that is engaged to be married. I live off of disability and SSI, and my wife works full time to make sure we have extra cash after bills. We focus all of our funds to bills and our kids so buying tickets is out of the question for me.

Disney World Vacation for Family

My name is SSG Joseph Weghorst. I'm in the Army with 12 years of service, I'm on my 4th deployment, 3 to Iraq and 1 to Afghanistan. This deployment I am in Iraq and have been away for 5 months, prior to this I did one 15 month tour to Iraq, and 12 to Iraq and Afghanistan. I joined the Army when my kids were 5 and 3 and have spent all four of my deployments away from them. This year is my daughters senior year of High School and I have missed it, but should be home just in time for her graduation and would like to take her to Disney after graduation and before college. For block leave prior to this deployment I was suppose to take her to Disney, but my mother tested positive for breast cancer so we cancelled our Disney trip and visited my mother.

Disney World park hopper tickets

Nov 17th 2018

I am Chief Petty Officer Christopher Fisk and have been in the Navy for 12 years. I have a beautiful family of 6. My wife Hannah and my children Heaven, Italia, Derek, and Maddox. I recently just got back from my deployment to Iraq and Kuwait. This past deployment was the hardest one to date since I deployed when my youngest son was just 3 months old. My wife had to take care of three children plus a newborn all by herself during my deployment. We just recently moved to Florida from California and the children are having a hard time making friends at their new schools and also getting adjusted. Since I have been back from deployment our family has not been able to spend quality time together due to our PCS among other things. It would mean everything to my family to be blessed with this and we would love to experience the magical moments Disney World has to offer. A trip to Disney World would be the ultimate blessing for our family as it allows us to spend quality time together and reconnect. Please consider this request as you would be making a true impact in our lives and we would be forever grateful. Thank you in advance and God bless.

Donors, Thank you so much for the donations to make our family Hero's Wish come true. My family was so surprised at the tickets they were overcome with joy. My wife and children were so excited. The first day we went to animal kingdom followed by Epcot, Magic Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios. We had so much fun and trying to save some money to go back in the future. It gave me the opportunity to reconnect with my family after my deployment and pcs move. The quality time with my wife and children was priceless and I am so grateful for your kindness. Everyday we were exhausted because we walked so much that allowed us to do so many things. This time it was awesome being exhausted because it was so much fun. Thank you for caring about veterans and the troops and just know that your donation made such a wonderful impact on this family!
 
Watching the Patriots in Nashville

My name is SFC John C. Thomas. I was severely wounded in Iraq 2003 when a car bomb hit the police station where I served. Thankfully, I was able to continue to serve for another 9 years until my retirement in 2014. I find it a privilege to have been able to serve my country for over 2 decades. My hope is to watch the New England Patriots in our home state of Tennessee. The Patriots play the Tennessee Titans on Veterans’ Day 2018. I have been waiting for this opportunity to share with my wife for many years. We have 2 young daughters and do not get much time just to ourselves. This would be such a pleasure for the 2 of us.

Disney World Orlando 4 day park hoppers

Nov 11th 2018

My name is Susan Jaenke, I am a Gold Star mother. My daughter HM2 Jaime S Jaenke, my daughter was KIA, 06/05/2006. Her Sea Bee group was sent out to clean up schools and hospitals. She was a Corpsman with MNCB25. She was killed in Anbar Providence on June 5th 2006. A series of Daisies went off under her HumVee killing her and the Driver. Jaime was the first female from Iowa to be killed in combat. She served both Navy and Marines. Since my daughters death we have had our vehicles repossessed and because there is no help for guardians I lost my house. Jaime had a daughter Kayla and I was gifted with raising her and if you know anything about children being raised by non parents but by Guardians you know that we lived on a shoe string. Kayla is now 21 and in college and working toward the medical field as was her Mom. She wants to work in Head traumas and brain injuries. She attends EIU. During the years after she passed, with the help of then Congressman Latham, we helped add muscle to the Sailors and Soldiers act, and changed the wording to the gratuity putting the control back into our warriors hands. The wording was changed and that change made the Warrior's wishes mandatory instead of the government wishes. My wish is to go to Disney World in Orlando, Fl.

Thank you for your donation. It was my kids’ first concert and they had a great time! It was an unbelievable concert, and it’s something my family will never forget! I returned from a deployment roughly 3 weeks ago, and this was a great way to spend valuable time with my wife and kids! Thank you!
 
DisneyWorld

Oct 10th 2018

My name is SPC. Quinn Jensen. I became wounded after serving in Afghanistan and was hit by an IED explosion. This resulted in many injuries including a TBI, broken back, broken elbow and both of my heels being shattered. I spent three months as an inpatient at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio where I received numerous surgeries and then continued to receive rehabilitation for several months following. Upon returning home to Utah, the pain in my right foot was too much to bare and was forced to have my right leg amputated. Although it has helped the pain significantly, I am very limited to the activities I can participate with my kids due to all my other injuries as well. My wife, Monica, and I have been saving to take our kids to Disney World to give us quality time to spend as a family and create wonderful memories. We feel like it will create a better bond with myself and the kids as well as a family as a whole. We continue to save and will do everything we can to make it happen, but worry we will struggle to make it happen. We have five children; Kennedi (11), Brayden (8), Wyatt (5), Caleb (2), and Emeri (10 months). They have been so patient and understanding with my situation with not being to be involved in physical play, and I want them to know how much I appreciate their support. I also want to give my wife, who does the majority of the work around the house since I am unable to and cares for our kids most of the time, a small break or vacation from all the cooking and cleaning up she does on a daily basis!My wish is for Park Hopper Tickets to Disney World for me and my family..

Thank You Message From Hero:
Wow! There are no words to describe how thankful I am for the generosity of all of you who made my wish, and the dreams of my family, come true. Our trip to Disney World was definitely one to remember and so many memories were made that I know our family will be talking about for years to come. Our kids were so excited to meet Mickey and pals and the rides are like nothing else! From myself, my wife and my children, thank you, to all of you, from the bottom of our hearts for giving us this opportunity to become closer as a family, to bond, and especially for the forever memories we will always have. We hope to someday be able to give back and make other’s dreams come true just like you did ours. Again, thank you for such an incredible opportunity!
 
Universal Orlando tickets

Oct 6th 2018

My name is Cpl. Joshua McCart. While on my 2nd deployment with the 82nd Airborne (1/325) the truck I was in was hit by an IED( Feb.2007). This blast resulted in loss of hearing, multiple shrapnel wounds and the loss of my right hand. Like most people experiencing severe combat wounds I have been through many surgeries and even more mental and emotional struggles. I have been married for 12 years this year and have a 17 year old and 7 year old son. We would like to go to Universal Studios this October because it is a place that has something for every age. My 17 year old graduated this month and will start college soon. I would also like to take my mother in law who has been by our side every step of our journey. She has traveled when needed and watched the kids and dogs for every surgery or issue we have had during my recovery. Not to mention she has been an invaluable support for my wife so that my wife could in turn be supportive to me.

Thank You Message From Hero:
Thank you to those who contributed to make our trip happen. It was very special to have been able to take my mother in law who has been a huge support for us during all the surgeries and struggles. My mother passed away on July 4th of this year. It has been an extremely emotional and stressful time for myself and my family. That made this time to relax and enjoy each other even more special to us. We had fun with no worries about injuries or even the "real world." Since our tickets were provided my wife and I went to Halloween Horror nights for a date night and had a lot of fun! These memories will last a lifetime or two. Our boys, ages 7 and 18, will always remember this trip. One of the best moments was when we went to eat and got caught in a torrential downpour. Everyone was taking cover but we just decided to embrace it. We took off our shoes and hopped through the puddles(which were like little rivers and lakes) and laughed through the rain. Everyone was watching us and we were having such a great time! It took about 24 hours for the car to dry after we got in!! Once again thank you to all those who donated for your support! -Amber and Joshua McCart
 
ARIZONA CARDINALS NFL Game

Sep 9th 2018

My name is MCPO George Arredondo and I am in the Navy Reserves and will be deploying to Afghanistan making this my 2nd tour plus the one in Iraq. As I am soon to start my third journey to the Middle East I would like to take my wife and two family members with me to enjoy a home game with the Arizona Cardinals before I depart, as the NFL season begins. I look forward to the football season which is my favorite past-time. I enjoy spending time with family and friends in any opportunity I can to watch a good football game with them. This year will be different since I will be missing most of the season due to my military workup training requirements, travel to my area of operations, and the challenges that may bring. By the time I return a whole new football season will be in play. As I begin to focus on my upcoming mission I would like this opportunity to see a home game with my wife and family. I don’t know what the future holds but I’ll embrace what comes with it.

Thank You Message From Hero:
I want to express a special THANK YOU to the two donors who offered up their tickets and making my hero wish come true to see the first Cardinals game of the season before I deploy to Afghanistan. My wife, sister and brother-in-law in addition to myself had a blast! Though the game results was not what we all wanted, but the experience with family and added bonus of being down on the field during pre-game was awesome. We know we could not have enjoyed this without our donors support and Vet Tix that makes these memorable events happen. These memories will be with me as I deploy with hopes and prayers making it back home safely to see my family and watch the start of the next season. Very Respectfully, George
 
Disney World Park Hopper tickets

Sep 6th 2018

Hello, my name is Bryan Silveri and I am currently deployed over seas where I have been since the beginning of September and I am due back sometime in April. This is my 6th deployment in 13 years and this has also been the most stressful and difficult one. It has been hard on me, but it has also taken a toll on my family. My 7yr old daughter Lucy and my 5yr old son Jackson are now old enough to understand that I am gone and it will be long time. It's especially hard on my son be he is Autistic and constantly fixates/obsesses over me being gone, if I am safe, or when I will be back home. So he has been extremely repetitive lately. Aside from that, this has really been difficult for my wife, because she is managing our son alone, along with my very delightful and helpful daughter. I would like to take them to Disney World in hopes of making up for all the birthdays, holidays, dr. appts, therapy appts, and events I have missed out on. I think everyone will enjoy it and it will give my wife hope again that everything will be fine. It will also help with my son obsessing over seeing Mickey! I miss home and I miss my family and I need this to help transition us as a family again, because after all, we are all human. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Disney World Family Vacation

Sep 1st 2018

My name is Eric Perkins. I was a Specialist in the NY Army National Guard 2-108th Infantry. I enlisted in July 2001. After September 11th, I was called to active duty for two years to assist with homeland security. I then deployed to Afghanistan from 2007-2008 where I was a member of a six-man team that embedded with and trained the Afghan National Police. In July 2008 I suffered a head injury when a suicide bomber attacked my vehicle; for which I received a Purple Heart. I returned home to my wife and my 3 amazing children; Tyler 8, Owen 6, and Isabella 4. Isabella was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation when she was just a year old and subsequently had to have a neurosurgeon perform a decompression surgery. She has aspiration and reflux problems that require her not drink and receive her hydration by J-tube. Additionally she has sleep apnea which requires her to wear a bi-pap mask while sleeping. Providing the care she, and her brothers, need can be overwhelming at times but we have received the help of some amazing people along the way. All of the kids love Disney but Isabella absolutely loves Frozen. During one of her hospital stays (28 days) she insisted Frozen be played on a loop the entire time. I dream of seeing all of their delight in experiencing the Magic of Disney World. I simply cannot afford to make it happen on my own right now. I am thankful for the existence of this program for all those who it has already helped and I am now humbly wishful it can assist me in creating unforgettable memories for my entire family. I would like to request (5) 4-day Park Hopper Passes to Disney World.

Legoland - Orlando

Sep 1st 2018

Hi! My name is Sgt Joshua Horne. I lost my best friend in 2009, the day I was wounded. I later discovered infidelity within my first marriage which resulted in losing my family. Shortly thereafter, God led me to my current wife and, we were able to obtain sole custody of my kids which allowed us to be a blended family. We haven't had a honeymoon or anything and I'd really love to share in a family vacation. My world is complete, especially with the arrival of our now 18 month old daughter. We have 5 kids; 9,8,8,6 and 18 months. We have all girls and one boy. My wish is to be able to all go on a vacation and spend some much needed quality family time. I'd love to be able to take them to Legoland when I return around Sept 2017.

Post deployment trip to Disney World

Aug 25th 2018

My name is MSgt John de la Cruz and an active duty firefighter in the USAF. I have been in the military for 17 years and am currently on my 8th deployment and will be returning in August. I would like to take my family to Disney World when I get back. As my kids, 4 and 8, are a little older, this deployment has been particularly hard on them and I wanted to surprise them with a trip when I return. My wife is also currently finishing nursing school and will graduate in August and I hope to be back to celebrate her accomplishment and take her to Disney World. She was following me for my entire career and put her career on hold and has finally found the opportunity to follow her dreams. Our military spouses and kids are remarkable and I would love to be able to show them how much I appreciate everything they do for me.

Disney World Vacation Park Hopper + passes

Aug 20th 2018

My name is SSgt Charles Kenney. I am active duty Air Force deployed from the 6th Security Forces Squadron. My family and I have been stationed at MacDill AFB for five years and there has not been a chance to relax and cherish what we have and reward my wife for holding the family together like she always does. Our oldest son was attacked by a dog requiring extensive facial surgeries, our youngest son required two surgical procedures while he was an infant and had failure to thrive, my wife required two medical surgeries, and I required back surgery in 2016 due to a military training exercise injury. I was not sure if I would ever return to active duty. It seems like the last five years has been one crisis after another. As grateful as we are for our positive experiences at MacDill AFB we are ready for me to return from this deployment, take one final family vacation, and head to the next chapter in our lives. Our youngest sons have never had the magical experience of Disney World and I would love to reward the entire family for standing by my side throughout my military service and always supporting me even when times were extremely stressful. I would like to take my family to Disney World when for a family reintegration vacation. Although Disney World will not make up for the lost time with their Dad, I would like to create new unforgettable memories with my kids that will last a lifetime and bring all five of us closer together and reunite as a family!
