Past Hero's Wishes

Notre Dame vs. Army @ Yankee Stadium,

Nov 20th 2010

My name is SPC O'Donnell. I am currently deployed in Afghanistan. I have been here since November 2009 and should be heading home in Late October of this year. I have been a life long Notre Dame fan and have never seen them play in person...it's my wish to take my father to see the ND Irish play against Army in Yankee Stadium on Saturday 20 November. I have already purchased the air tickets to go, however I cannot find any tickets for the game. I have looked at the ticket outlets online and the prices are out of my range. I plan on going to the game with my Dad, also a lifelong Irish fan. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thank You

Thank you so much! I have been a life long Notre Dame fan and you made it possible! I want a month after I got back from deployment. I went with my dad. It was the first football game played at Yankee stadium. It was a memory of a lifetime! Thank you and God bless!

I am currently on the tail end of my third deployment overseas, second time in Iraq with an Afghanistan inbetween them. My Company will be redeploying at the beginning of Sept and my request is for 2 tickets to the Red River Shootout which is the annual OU vs UT game at the Cotton Bowl. This year it will be held on Oct 2 and will right at the start of my post deployment block leave. I would like to take my dad to the game, he is a Veitnam vet. I have never been able to attend this game in the past and Sooner football is a huge passion in my life. It would be a great event to be able to go to with my dad. If possible tickets on the an OU section would be greatly appreciated. A little bit about my unit that kind of makes this deployment unique. I am currently with C Co 1-3 IN (The Old Guard). We are better known by our Soldiers who keep constant watch over the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington and for conducting military funerals in Arlington National Cemetery. This is the first combat deployment that an element from our unit has been on since the Veitnam War. Two Companies have been sent to Africa in the past few years but none to an active combat zone that is until us. Once we deploy back to Ft Myer we will reset and continue with our ceremonial duties in Arlington National Cemetery and around the National Capitol Region. It is a huge honor and humbling experience to be part of this unit. Thanks for all you do for us. John

I just wanted to say thanks to the University of Oklahoma, the donor and the crew at VetTix. The Red River Shootout was a great experience and great game this past weekend. Thank you for assisting and making this happen for my father and myself. The Texas State Fair was an amazing atmosphere and the game was great. It was a pretty exciting finish to a great performance put on by the University of Oklahoma. I wish I could attend every single Red River Shootout for the rest of my life. That is how great it was and how much I am very thankful for everyone's participation in making it happen. Once again thank you from the bottom of my heart! RLTW.
 
Chicago Cubs tickets

Aug 30th 2010

I am hoping to be able to attend a Cubs game with my family. It is pretty expensive to take a family to a MLB game. I have been to several and usually can only afford two tickets. I would like to be able to take my entire family to a game. We all love the Cubs and it would be awesome if we all could go at the same time. I am returning to the United States at the end of July and would like to attend a Cubs game before the kids return to school. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Id like to thank everyone involved in fulfilling my wish. We were ablt to attend the Chicago Cubs game against the Atlanta Braves on August 22nd. My family and I were treated very well while at Wrigley Field. We were treated to onfield passes during Cubs batting practice and great seats a couple sections back from home plate. Got a couple autographs and some great pictures of the players. Thanks to Dwayne and Eddie at Veteran Tickets Foundation for all their help in making this day become a reality. Thanks to the Chicago Cubs and Jamie King with the Wrigley Field Ambassadors. She made sure we were taken care of and even came back during the game to see if we were doing ok. Thanks to all who donate money, time and tickets to make these wishes come true for Veterans and their families. We certainly had a great time and it will be a day we wont forget. Getting to go onto the field during batting practice is something not many get to do. The Cubs went "all-out" with taking care of us. Thanks again. Go Cubs!!
 
CROSBY STILLS & NASH CONCERT

Aug 29th 2010

My husband will be coming home on R&R on Aug 18th- Sept 1. We desperately need a "date night." We didn't get to spend much quality time with one another before he left because of the move back to NJ and many sleep deprived nights up with our newborn. I would love to surprise him by staying overnight in Atlantic City for dinner and a Crosby Stills & Nash concert. I know he needs the break and you would make one very special hero happy...and wife :)!

Disney World / Wisconsin Dells

Aug 28th 2010

Hi my name is Jason I am currently on my second deployment and deployed to Afghanistan with the Airborne CAV stationed out of Germany. When I deployed I was told that I would not be getting mid tour leave but I recently found out I will be getting leave in early/ mid August. I am extremely excited about leave because my wife flew back state side to Illinois in April and just gave birth to my first daughter two weeks ago. She is currently staying with family along with our 10yr old son. I would love to take my recently enlarger family to Disney or Wisconsin Dells Kalahari indoor / outdoor water park resort for leave. This would not only be a wonderful surprise for our ten year old son but it would be a wonderful way for our family to re-bond without all the extra family around since we do not have our own place state side. This would also be extremely exciting for my family because we still have 2 years left to serve in Germany and it is very hard for us to come home for visits or vacations. Right now till the end of July I can get hero tickets to Disney World for $99.00 each plus tax, I would need 3 tickets. After July 31st the four day pass for 3 would be $85.00 a day per person $1020.00. Or I can get passes to Kalahari indoor / outdoor water park resort for 2 days for my whole family for $399.90 I know that this is a lot to ask for but it would mean the world to my family and me. I missed so much of of the pregnancy and my daughters birth that being able to have this time and amazing experience with my family would mean everything to us. Thanks for reading my wish.

GETTING MARRIED ON LEAVE!!!

Jul 15th 2010

I'm currently serving at an undisclosed location in the Middle East. I got engaged to my girlfriend of 3 years in February of this year. We have set a date for July 17th while I'm home on mid-tour leave. For our first date 3 years ago I took her to see the Atlanta Braves play the Milwaukee Brewers. It so happens that the same two teams are playing on the night that would be our bachelor/bachelorett party night July 15, 2010. We've made plans to go to the game for said celebration, however there are 8 people in our wedding party and getting good seats for that many people is impossible on my budget (did i mention, her parents don't approve, so I'm paying for the whole wedding.) I know its a long shot, but one of the few things that we hold on to over here are the ones we love, and following our favorite sports teams in the news. I know the Braves aren't rocking anybody's world this year, but I would still love to see them play. I know this is a long shot, but its the only shot I've got. Thanks.

Dream to See

Jul 14th 2010

Dear VET TIX, My name is Gordon Ewell. I am a Severely Injured Iraq War Veteran, Medically Retired after over 24 years of service (U.S. Army). It was “My Dream” to spend 30 years in military service, and retire as a Command Sergeant Major. However, in 2006, an Improvised Explosive Device (IED), Blew up my vehicle. Injuries that I sustained deprived me of that dream, and many others. I suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), a Broken Neck, Lost my Right Eye, and Lost most of the Vision in My Left Eye (while I have some useable vision, I am legally Blind). I lost My Hearing (I have a Cochlear Implant), I have had the left side of my face rebuilt (jaw), and have been on a liquid diet for the better part of four years. I suffer from severe PTSD, a Flaccid Neurogenic Bladder, Cognitive Disorders, Myalgia, Abnormality of Gait, Fracture of the 6th vertebrae in my neck, with restricted right side stenosis, Fractured Jaw, Chronic pain, Dyssomnia, and Chronic facial Pain. My wife has had a dream of wanting to see the Broadway Show, “Wicked,” ever since it’s Premier. I told her in 2005, prior to leaving for Iraq, that I would take her when I got home. I lied. Instead of coming home, and taking her to see “Wicked,” I came home Severly Wounded, and have spent the last four years, in and out of 5 different hospitals, seeing over 43 different Surgeons, Medical Specialists, and Doctors, as well as over a dozen different Dental and Oral Surgeons, and again that many mental health professionals. Instead of me realizing my dream, or her realizing hers, We have done nothing but try to regain all of the physical and mental health we could for me. She put her life on hold, trying to help ensure, that I would have the best life I could, with what I had l left, in the future. Now, my dream has changed. My dream is to try to make her dream (and my original promise to her) come true. I have to be in Palo Alto, California for a Congressional Eye Study, that I am part of, Between 12 and 14 July. I noticed at the Orpheum Theater, on 1192 Market Street, San Francisco, CA 94102 (415) 512-7770, The Off Broadway Play of “Wicked” is being performed. I was very excited. However, the tickets for the Orchestra Section of the Play are $95.00 a piece. It might not seem like a lot, but with SIX kids at home, the price is way “outside” of my grasp. If I could have a wish come true. It would be to be able to take her to see “Wicked,” while we were in the “Bay Area,” 12-14 July, the 14th if at all possible. I have not even told her that the Play is going on, for fear that she would just have her hopes dashed again, if I were unable to take her. Anyway, that is my dream. If there is anything you could do to make it come true, I cannot tell you how grateful I would be. If it just can’t happen, I totally understand, and would still like to tell you thank you for all you are doing and trying to do on behalf of all our Soldiers and Veterans. Thank you Very MUCH!!! Sincerely, Gordon “Gordy” Ewell Severely Wounded “Iraqi War Veteran”

Thank You Message From Hero:
Dear Vet Tix Team, Recently I submitted a wish to you. I was going to be in the Bay Area (San Francisco), in July 2010, for some ongoing medical testing and studies as a result of severe injuries suffered in Iraq in 2006. I noticed the off-broadway production of the play "Wicked," was playing at the Orpheum Theater in San Francisco. It was my wife's wish to see the play. It was MY WISH, to make her wish come true, as a way of saying thank-you for taking care of this Wounded Warrior, So Badly Broken, and different than the Warrior you sent off to War. It was very short notice, and the premium tickets were way outside the price range for the parents of six kids. But, it was worth a shot, so I took the chance to make my wish come true and contacted you. I do not know how you pull off the miricles that you do. My reasoning is simple, because you are all angels... or helping them do their work anyway :) You not only made my wish come true, by arranging for us the very best seats in the Theater, but arranged a night at a luxury hotel and dinner at one of the very best reastraunts in the city. To top it off you arranged a Limo to take us to each destination the entire evening. It was truly a remarkable evening! Your Expertise and Contacts in the Entertainment Industry, took my wish and added to it wonderful elements that I never would have thought of, never could have afforded, or ever would have attempted to pull together on my own. Thank-You! It will never be enough for the memories that will last a lifetime, for one of the best things to have happened since my injuries, or for the opportunity to see my wife smile and laugh, after so many hard years filled with 5 different hospitals, 43 different specialists, surgury after surgury, and driving hours every single day for intensive out-patient therapies. Thank-You Vet-Tix for literall making "OUR" wishes come true! Very Special Thank You to Eddie Rausch. Thanks Eddie! You are all AWESOME! Mission Accomplished! Thank-You!!!

Tim McGraw Concert for R&R

May 8th 2010

Hi there. I'm PVT Kirk Downing, currently serving overseas (with the Florida National Guard) in Operation Iraqi Freedom. I don't think that answering the call of duty for the greatest country on earth makes me a hero, as I am just one of millions who have done it. But I am definitely learning how hard it is to be away from the people I love and care about. I was blessed to receive a "Rest & Relaxation" leave for next month (May) and am excited to get home to Florida and see my Family and my Girlfriend. I miss them like crazy, and it will be extremely great to get away from the stresses of life over here. There is a Tim McGraw concert at the Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach on May 8th, and I would love to drive up from Miami and take my girlfriend or sister to the show. Tim McGraw is my favorite artist in the world, and that would pretty much "make my whole year!" To those of you reading this and the many others, thank you for all you do to support us. The amount of love in the way of gifts, greeting cards, care packages, etc. is overwhelming and awesome. We can't all thank you enough for helping to make our time away from "home" a little easier. God Bless you all.

It has been a very long while since my first ever suns game, a playoff no less. But, I can remember every moment of it. I brought a few of my hometown friends as my battle buddies were all on vacation after returning home from deployment. I spent a good portion of my deployment watching the Suns in my free time whenever they were on AFN. The opportunity to go to a Suns game during the playoffs with some of my life long friends was an experience I will never forget. Your contribution sincerely helped with my reintegration into civilian life and brought laughter and joy back into my world. It was a great experience I thank you so much for that opportunity!

Mavericks Tickets

I would like to attend a Mavericks game. I was deployed in support of OIF and was medevac'd in August of 2009 I am currently in the Warrior Transition Unit and live in Fort Worth. I had surgery after 6 months of therapy to my right knee and am pending surgery on my left knee. I am a single mother and I feel that my children have already given up so much. I feel that because Basketball is important to them that it would be wonderful to show them that I am greatful for all the support they give me during this time. I also suffer from PTSD and that sometimes could be difficult for them to comprehend. They are patient and loving, for that I am thankful.
