First Chicago Blackhawks Game

Dec 11th 2015

My name is Nick Buchhaas. I am a retired Marine CPL. With putting my wife and children first I would never be able to attend a Blackhawks game. I am asking for this wish to take my wife and children to have this experience together as a family. I would like to thank anyone who visits this page and even more to those who donate so my wish can be fulfilled.

Pittsburgh Steelers Game

Dec 6th 2015

I am Thaddeus Willey and I served 13 years. I was hit by an IED in Iraq in 2009 and med-evaced to Walter Reed army hospital. After about a year of recovery I was then medically retired. I would like to take my family to a Steelers game as it has always been a dream for us. I am requesting 4 tickets to a Steelers home game for myself, my wife and my 2 daughters. Thank you for reading.

    Attend San Fransisco 49ers game

    Nov 29th 2015

    I have served this great nation for 16 years and take pride in serving alongside some amazing Americans. I have recently been selected to deploy to Afghanistan. I have served in Iraq three times, and Afghanistan once already. So this will be my fifth combat deployment. I am a Hospital Corpsman in the United States Navy, and I love what I do. I have the distinct privilege of taking care of the U.S Marines in combat and back home. I will continue to take care of those Marines till the day that I retire. My job comes easy for me since this is what I have been doing since I was 17 (Parent waiver). But it is hard on my family. I have been married to my wife for almost 13 years, and I have three beautiful children, 18, 11, 9. These deployments are always hard for us, but I have a wonderful support network of grandparents, brother, and in-laws. My wife and oldest child have been through every deployment, and my two youngest vaguely remember me being gone, because they just thought I was working. But now they are older, and understand where I am going, and what I do. I want to have a memory that both my family and I can enjoy, and give something to them to laugh and reminisce about while I am deployed. I was breed a Niners fan since birth by my grandfather, and my wife, who never used to watch football till she met me, is a die hard fan, and is always there with me watching them on television. I have raised all my children to be Niners fans, and there rooms are decorated with Forty-Niners memorabilia. So since it is football season, I thought the most fitting Heroes wish would be to watch them live. None of my family members, including myself, have ever been to a professional football game, and who better to watch than the SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS!! I am humble to be considered for this opportunity, and I would like to thank VET TIX for offering this opportunity, and all of those make something like this possible. You are great Americans for supporting a foundation like this. I would be thankful for the opportunity to watch any 49ers game at Levi stadium.

Words cannot express how grateful I am that you made this moment and memories for my family. The game was energetic and nothing like I have experienced before. This was a moment for my family and I to experience before my deployment. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your help in supporting Veterans and making their wishes come true.
     
    Denver Broncos game

    Nov 29th 2015

    Greetings, my name is Jason Adams and I recently returned from my fourth deployment. I am stationed at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, but I'm coming back to Denver to spend some time with my brother and sister and their families. This will be the last visit for awhile as I am being stationed in South Korea for two years. I would love to take my wife and kids to see my team, the Denver Broncos, when they play the New England Patriots on November 29th. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and GO BRONCOS!!!

    To say thank you to those who donated to make my wish come true is simply not adequate but I will do my best with this message. Truly, from the bottom of my heart (and my wife's heart), THANK YOU SO MUCH to the Veterans Ticket Foundation and the other donor (please let me know who you are so I can thank you personally!) for the gift of tickets to the Broncos/Patriots game, which turned out to be the best game of the season! I have not had such an amazing, wonderful time in many, many years! We are truly humbled and blessed by your generous donation (a donation that must have been painful, given how popular this game was). We truly appreciate your gift, as we had the absolute time of our lives. You know little about me, but you gave anyways, and for that we are blessed beyond measure. Thank you, and I hope to be in a position some day after I retire where I can grant the wish of another deserving service member. You have inspired me and I am truly, humbly, grateful. God bless!
     
    Porland TrailBlazers Game

    Nov 28th 2015

    I am currently deployed. I am coming home in a few weeks and would love to catch a Portland Trailblazers game vs. the LA Lakers on the 28th of November in Portland. I am a huge Basketball fan and would like to go see Kobe Bryant before he retires. I'd also just love to go to a game. I haven't been to an NBA game in years.

    Lambeau Field - Green Bay Packers

    Nov 26th 2015

    Hello, my name is Tyler Stauffacher and I was born and raised a die hard Green Bay Packers fan. My earliest memories are of my Grandfather, Father and aunts and uncles all huddled around the floor model zenith on Packers Sundays. We have now been blessed to have an outstanding team that we are proud of. The glory days have brought high ticket prices and no availability. People are now born live, and die a Packers fan, while on an endless season ticket waiting list. My Father, now in his late 50’s, didn’t make it to Lambeau until 2007 when I purchased tickets for him off an exchange with money I received from a re-enlistment bonus while deployed. My mother to this day has never been to the mecca of pro football that is Lambeau field. The thing most people don't understand is that when you enlist to serve in the military it takes more than just personal courage. That responsibility to serve extends to everyone in your life that loves and cares about you. My request is less about my wants and more about giving back to the ones who love and support me and my decision to continue to serve. I am requesting not only 4 tickets to Lambeau Field but asking that you help create a memory. A memory I can share with my heroes my Parents Vicki and Terry along with my wife Allison. Without them I wouldn't be the man I am today and definitely wouldn't be able to continue to defend this country that we all love. I chose this thanksgiving day game specifically because I know I will be able to take leave from my unit to attend. I would like to thank whoever is reading this for taking the time to consider my request. I truly believe programs and organizations such as this are what is right with America today. Very respectfully, Sergeant First Class Tyler A. Stauffacher

    Disney World vacation

    Nov 15th 2015

    My name is Angela Hause. I'm the proud mother of two amazing kids. Alexis age 13 and Cody age 10. We lost their father SSGT Brian Paul Hause on 10-23-08 while he was stationed in Ballad. It's been a rough few years for us with moving to a new state, new school and the daily challenge of raising kids without their father. Even with all they have been through my kids are smart, and kind and amazing young people who are so much like their father. Life has not been fair to them and with each year brings new challenges and hardships for them having to grow up without a father. I know vacations cannot fix things but it can bring a smile to their faces and give them some wonderful memories to help when they days aren't filled with many things to be happy about. Time of year does not matter. We have been to Orlando and love it. I would love the opportunity to take my children on a dream vacation to Disney World in Orlando Florida. We got engaged at Disney World so that place holds a special place in my heart. I'm not asking for all just giving some options as anything would be amazing for them and they would love to go to any of those places. Thank you for taking the time to read our story and thank you for helping me to make a wonderful memory for my children.

    Dallas Cowboys

    Nov 8th 2015

    My name is SGT Aaron Kent. I have three little girls, oldest is 4, 2 and a 5 month old. I missed the oldest being born, and just barely made it back for the last 2. I am missing my oldest daughters first day of kindergarten due to being up at fort Leonard Wood for Advance leaders course. Me and my three friends wish to go to see a Dallas cowboys vs Eagles game with your help if possible. CPL Ross, SGT Arce, and SPC Sigers, All three of us met at fort hood, and have been with each other all through the deployment to Liberia. we all look out for each other and talk about Sports and Fantasy Football to help the day go by. SPC Sigers and his wife were blessed with a beautiful baby boy just a week before we left so that was really hard on him for his first deployment, and my wife was having complications with our daughter during her pregnancy which scared me while I was waiting to get back to her and my girls. But thank god I made it back in time to see the birth of my beautiful daughter Emma.

    Tennessee Titans VS Atlanta Falcons

    Oct 25th 2015

    My name is Roger and I am recently medically retired from the Army on Sept 29 2014. I was severely injured in Eastern, Afghanistan on 23 April 2011 while conducting a night mission leading my Platoon. My Platoon was ambushed and we took heavy casualties and KIA. Being the Platoon Sergeant and having the Medic with me I had seen numerous Soldiers down in front of the enemy position during the intense firefight that was no more than 15 meters apart. Without hesitation myself and my Medic rushed into enemy fire to try and retrieve our men and while only a few meters away I was blown up by a enemy hand grenade. I have been on the road to recovery mentally and physically but it is hard. I have attempted suicide several times and have been impatient trying to live with the guilt of losing my men. I live in isolation and don't get out much. I just thought maybe going to a Tennessee Titans game with my neighbor would be good for a change. We are both big fans of the Titans. He has really helped me with supporting me around the yard, talks about my lose, since he is a senior critical care paramedic and knows what I'm talking about and overall a good friend. Thank you to anyone reading this. We all are inspiration to each other no matter what we do.

    FAMILY DISNEYLAND

    Oct 10th 2015

    My name is SPC Amado R. Punto Jr. I am currently deployed in Romania. From Aug 2011 to Sept 2012 I had my first deployment and spent time with my family in the Philippines on Apr 2012 during R & R. I went back to Fort Riley on Aug. 2012 and was reassigned to my current unit 165th MCT , 541st Combat Sustainment Support battalion. Before the end of year 2013, my family visas were finally approved and they came to states on Dec 30 2013. After 45 days of being together again I got deployed to Romania from 15 February 2014 until present. My wife and kids were only in the states for a month before I was deployed. My wife, my two sons ages 10 and 13 and daughter 17 are staying now in Oxnard , California. Their only wish at this time is for me to give them a time for family bonding after deployment and they want it in Disneyland in Anaheim. Their wish since their childhood might come through with your support and will really appreciate it with all my heart.

    Hello, My name is SPC Timothy Sexton. I have just recently returned home from my first combat deployment to Afghanistan. I am married to my beautiful wife Teesha. While I was gone, 2 of my wife's many wishes included coming home safely to her, and to take her to a Cowboys game. I have fulfilled one of those wishes, and intend to fulfill the second. I wish to attend the Atlanta Falcons @ Dallas Cowboys game on September 27th, 2015. I grew up a Falcons fan, and she grew up a Cowboys fan. Fortunately they are playing each other in the state that we reside! So we are both very excited to get a chance to see them both.

      My name is SPC Sisk. I have a wife and 3 amazing kids that are 11,9, and 5. They are my heart and soul. I haven't got to see them much in the last 3 years due to training and deployments and would love to take them to Disney. I always wanted to go there myself when I was little but could never afford it. I think it would be some much needed bonding time after this deployment. My wish is for 5 4-day park hopper passes for Disney World.

      Disneyland Family Vacation

      Aug 15th 2015

      I would like to take my wife and children to Disneyland. We had to purchase a car when I got home from deployment because the car we had we didn't trust to drive across country with a trailer, doing this left us with very little money after the down payment and trip across country and moving into our new apartment. Now we live month to month paycheck to paycheck. My daughters both 12 and 4 have been begging to go to Disneyland since I got home! I have a wife and 3 gorgeous children, 2 girls and a boy. Eve is 12, Leigha 4 and Lucas 1! I was hoping to get 5 tickets so that my mother could join us at Disneyland! She hasn't been able to spend much time with the kids because my wife moved back to MI while I was deployed to spend time with her family.

      My name is SGT Christopher E Waite. I am currently on my third deployment and my second one in 3 years. Both have been to Afghanistan. The last 3 years have been hard on myself and my family due to the time that I have had to spend away from them serving our great country. With this deployment coming to an end I can not think of a better way to share an experience with them then through a generous donation from Vet Tix. I have always wanted to experience the Brick Yard 400 in Indianapolis, IN even though I live close to the track I have never had the opportunity to watch a race live and in person. I know it would be an experience of a life time, to feel the rumble of the engine of the Nascars as they scream by. Thank you for your time and consideration.

      Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque Du Soleil

      Jul 24th 2015

      My name is SSgt Kelly Goodman. My kids are HUGE Michael Jackson fans, they love his music so much, even my girls would move around in my belly when I played him around the house. My son knows all his songs. It's just a drive from us and it can be a vacation we can have that's affordable and not over the top. I missed out on Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, their 5th birthday, my anniversary, New years, Valentine's, St Patrick's, and soon to be Easter. My kids haven't been apart from me this long and my kids have actually had a harder time than I thought. It's dad who is usually gone for work (he's military too). We are looking at going to Vegas July 22-26 so any show during that time would be amazing. I just want to thank these kids for their sacrifice, and have a memorable time with them since I missed out on so much, and thank my husband for taking on the task of mom and dad and shuttling them everywhere. We try to bond with our kids through things they love and have a passion for and Michael Jackson's music and talent, and the acrobatics from this show are things our kids love, to see their faces light up with joy and excitement, the freedom they have to do that, reminds me why I love my job and do what I do for them. I'm requesting 5 tickets because it's me, my husband, our 14 year old son, and our twin 5 year old daughters. Thank you for reading our wish.

They even had a hologram of Michael towards the end, and it was a bittersweet realization that he really is gone and this was the closest thing we'd get to see him in concert. We're beyond blessed to have such amazing supporters of military like you guys. I'm forever grateful that I got to take my family somewhere as a thank you for their hard work and support during my deployment. Thank you guys so much!

      4 day passes to Disney World

      My name is Douglas Edds. I separated from active duty back in 2012. In September of 2011 on my last deployment I was blown up by a VBIED (truck packed with 1500 lbs of explosives) receiving the purple heart and being sent back to the united states medically. After I got out I had to start different treatments through the VA and haven't been able to truly get away and go on a vacation. So now that my health is stable we don't really have the money for a big vacation like this. So it is my wish to take my wife and two kids to Disney World for a once in a lifetime experience.

      My name is Lara Smith, my husband SSG, Tyler J. Smith was KIA in Afghanistan April 3, 2012. We were high school sweethearts, and got married right out of high school at the ages of 17 and 18. We were married for 6 years before his passing and we have two beautiful children. Our son Wyatt is 7, and our daughter Carson is 4. We always dreamed of taking our kids to Disney World since neither of us had ever been. Carson loves Cinderella and frequently talks about wanting to visit her castle and meet all the princesses. I would love to be able to take Wyatt and Carson to Disney World in FL. It would be a dream come true and a once in a lifetime opportunity. I am asking for 4 4-day passes to Disney World FL (for myself, Wyatt, Carson, and for a family member to help me with the kids.) Thank you and God Bless.

      My 2 children and I want to say a big thank you to Vet Tix, and to all of the donors who helped make our wish come true. We had an amazing time at Disney World. My daughter Carson got to meet almost all of the princesses, and my son loved riding all of the rides. Without all of your help we would have never been able to go. It was such an amazing experience and I loved seeing the huge smiles on my kids faces. I can not possibly thank all of you enough.
       
      Disneyland Park Hopper

      Jun 29th 2015

      I am currently on my seventh deployment. I have been deployed since October 2014 and missed all the birthdays and holidays with Maria, my wife of 19 years (20 in August)and my 15 and 14 year old daughters, Ana and Tori and my 13 year old son Santiago. To be able to receive 4 three day Disneyland, CA Park Hopper passes would be a tremendous blessing and gift for my family. On 5 April 2015 I reached my 20 year anniversery in the service and it will be great to get back home and surprise them with a gift for all the support they have given me in allowing me to serve my country with honor. Thank you for reading and consideration in fulfilling this veterans wish. May God continue to bless America and those who defend and support her.

      My name is Robert Fleming and I served 12 years in the Army. I was recently medically retired as a Sergeant First Class in 2014 due to injuries that I sustained in combat. I have had multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan where I received 2 purple hearts. My service, deployments, and injuries have taken its toll on my wonder wife April who I've been married to for 11 years and she even quit work and nursing school to take care of me in the hospital while we were dating after I was injured in Iraq. After my injuries and hospital stays I regrouped and toughed it out for another decade, and more deployment. While this was satisfying personally for my career it took its toll on my body and my family as I wasn't there for them and I was gone the entire first year of my oldest due to deployment. I have three wonderful boys that are 4, 3, and 2 that are great. My oldest and youngest are autistic and though it is challenging they make our world brighter and better. They love the Disney channel and any and all Disney characters. We've never got a chance to take a family while I was active due to responsibilities, deployments, training, and medical issues. It actually is a wish and it would be a blessing if my family could go to Disney world in Orlando Florida. I am requesting and wishing that my family of 5 be able to go to Disney in Orlando for 2 days. Thank you and God bless Robert

Your donations ensured three boys had the best week of their life, and ensured that my wife and I finally got to take a trip that was always put off.

      I just recently returned from a 5th Fleet deployment on a Naval Patrol Coastal Ship. I have been promising my little guy for a few years now that we would take him to Disney World to meet Mickey and his other favorite characters. I would love to fulfill that promise and take my wife and 5 year old son to disney in Florida while on my post deployment leave. I have 30 days until I check into my next duty station and school. My window to go would be between 25Jan-06Feb 2015.

      We were floored to have received three four day park hoppers for Disney Parks in Orlando, FL. The gesture was much more than expected from our original request of one day at Disney. Michelle and Vet Tix made it possible to finally on our promise to take Connor to Disney Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom. He said it best when he said "Its the greatest day of my life". I really appreciate everything that Vet Tix does for our troops and for donors like Michelle for paying forward such a fulfilling experience. Thank you so much for making my Families Summer!
       
      Chicago Bulls Playoffs 2015

      May 8th 2015

      My name is Daniel Acosta. My Wish is to attend a Chicago Bulls playoffs game with my family. My children are huge Chicago Bulls fans and all play in an extracurricular basketball program. They had a chance to meet some of the players at a fan event this past winter and now are completely hooked on the team. It's been a plan to attend a game together but is usually too expensive. I feel that attending a Bulls game would been an amazing experience for my children and a great opportunity to have a family bonding moment.

With all of us being avid Chicago Bulls fans, watching Derek Rose score the buzzer beating game winning shot is a memory that will last a lifetime. As a father, it was very special to watch my children full of excitement, cheering, laughing and happy! Thank you for all you do to support our veterans and their families.

      Take my family to Disney World before my surgery

      Apr 12th 2015

      Hi there, I'm SPC Jason Walker. I'm a former Marine and current Soldier in the Army. On my third deployment I stepped on a landmine that resulted in the instant amputation of my left leg and my right leg was blown apart. I fought to keep the leg and after 6 months and tons of surgeries I learned to walk again. I've been doing better but my limb salvage has been having increasing problems and on April 22nd I'll be having surgery on it again. This time it may result in the amputation of my right leg above the knee. Before I'm back down for a while I was hoping that I could take my wife and kids to Disney World in Orlando, Fl. I'm requesting 5 four day hopper tickets. My family has been my life line, and I'd love to allow them a chance to have fun and get away for a few days. They have been the reason I take each step further on my recovery. Please help me give my family a memorable vacation, thank you.
