Family Trip to Disney World Oct 2014

Oct 20th 2014

My name is Thomas Collins. I am requesting four 4 day tickets for my family (myself, my wife, and our three children) to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. I am a Purple Heart Recipient. Our children have been asking for a long time to go to Disney World, and I myself have always dreamed of going. I am finally medically retired and we are able to take the time to go on a trip. Thank you for your support in helping make this dream come true for all of us.

Disneyland for my AMAZING family!

Oct 4th 2014

I am coming home a little early to surprise my kids after a long deployment. Not only our we celebrating my return but we will also finalize my sons adoption! We are looking for 6 Disneyland tickets and would love park hopper or even the special military 3 day but would be overjoyed if we could get 4 tickets. With the cost of the flight home from deployment being out of our own pocket any and all family money has gone to air fair. With so much to celebrate I feel we should do it at the happiest place on earth DISNEYLAND! With myself, wife and four kids its a small fortune for us to go out to dinner let alone Disneyland.

Disney World Vacation - OCT 2014

Oct 1st 2014

Hi I am Spc. Jaron Mullins, I am currently deployed on my first deployment to Afghanistan. I have a very supportive wife back home Rebecca and a 2 year old son (Emmitt). Because of all my training and event leading up to this deployment and on the deployment, I have missed my son's 1st and 2nd bday. I also was not able to give my wife a honeymoon, since I deployed 2 months after we got married. So I really want to spoil them both with 10 days in Orlando in October prob end of the month entering November, I want to Take them to Disney World, Universal Studios, and of course Sea World. Money has always been a problem, especially now with my wife student loans, but I know they deserve it, because of everything I have missed. so anything yall can give or donate will be a blessing to me and my Family. Thank you For supporting the Troops

My name is Henry Rossi. I served as a Lance Corporal with the 1st Marine Division during the 1968 Tet Offensive at Quingai Province, Vietnam. During the Battle I became severely wounded and lost a leg. My wish is to attend a New York Yankees day game this season to see Derek Jeter play (this is his last year). A friend will assist me in traveling. I would like to sit in the handicapped section. If possible four tickets would be great, in order to share this experience with my buddies.. Thank you for your consideration and Cheers to VET TIX for the outstanding Hero's Wish Program

Tennessee Titans Home NFL Game

Sep 14th 2014

My name is Roger Moore. I wish to take my family to see the Tennessee Titans. My wife and I are huge Titans fans. We would need 6 tickets for the family. I really want to do this trip for my wife. She has gone through a lot during the years, especially putting up with my issues. Her brother was KIA in 1967 in Vietnam when she was 17, she was married to me in 1968 and had a wounded husband at 18, was raising her 2 year old brother our first son at 18 and managed to take care of me during the early years of my disability. She was a keeper all the way. She loves doing things with family so I would love to be able to take the crew to Tennessee for an extended week end and as part of the trip enjoy a Titans game. I know it would be an event the whole family will remember. I've spent the last 45 years doing finance and accounting for the hospitality industry. Retired a couple of years ago and travel a lot. Was recently diagnosed with the impacts of Agent Orange. I'm the taller of the two in the picture from 68. Thank you for all you do.

This was the most amazing time myself and my family had enjoyed since I returned home. It had been 20 years since my father attended an Alabama game.

I greatly appreciate the work the veteran tickets foundation did to get me these tickets as well as the donors who provided them. The seats were amazing. The game was amazing. It really made me forget about anything and everything except enjoying time with my family. Thank you again.

The Wiggles Tickets

Sep 6th 2014

I have five wonderful kids, with my wife of 14 years Lindsey, who are huge fans of The Wiggles. The weekend of my birthday The Wiggles are coming for a show at the Florida Theater in Jacksonville; that doesn't happen very often. I would LOVE tickets to take our 4 oldest children and one parent to the show. They are 9, 5, 3, and 2(we aren't sure our 5 month old would know what was going on). We are living on my VA Compensation while I go to school and this would mean so much to us! I think it would cost around $350 after taxes for the tickets.

Thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to take my children to a Wiggles concert. It's something that they've always wanted to do. I was thrilled to have the chance to do this with them, because before I was injured I spent a lot of time away from home in the Army and now I spend a lot of time at school and at doctor's appointments. This was something they will never forget, they even got to meet some of the performers after the show. We had so much fun! You guys are the best! Thanks again for giving me and my kids a fun and memorable experience; it means the world to us!

 

Family trip to Disney World August 2014

Aug 22nd 2014

My name is GM1 Vargas and I'm preparing to come home from my 4th deployment. I would love to give my wife and children (ages 11,8,7,3) a trip to Disney World once I get back. My wife of 9 years has been doing a great job keeping everything on track in picking up my part in the house and with the kids. The kids have been great little helpers as well. This deployment has been particularly rough on all of us and we are in need of some fun and relaxation. I've missed several important events such as their soccer games in which they were all first time players, school awards, a birthday, and our anniversary. On top of that our hopes of going to our hometown (after not being home for 3 years) have been shattered due to deployment extension. So to make up for all of the sacrifices we've all had to make, I am requesting help with (6) 3-day one park per day tickets to Disney World.

Disney World Vacation AUG

Aug 9th 2014

Hi my name is Spc Brandon Flanagan. I am a medically retired Army Infantryman, I was severely wounded in 2008 in my first deployment to Iraq and suffered a traumatic brain injury among other injuries in a bombing. The last 6 years have included huge highs and lows as thanks to God I survived and recovered better than anyone expected, but I still have ongoing struggles and was also left by 2 wives since my accident. But 3rd times a charm and I am glad to be married to my current wife, who has been wonderful and helpful to me, caring for me when others wouldn't and being my advocate with the VA and such. But we have a hard time sometimes. I can't work and she left her job to care for me and the kids so finances are tight. I have 2 sons ages 7 and 8 from my 1st marriage that I have joint custody of and my wife and I have a daughter age 2 together. None of us (except for my wife when she was a kid) have ever been able to afford to go on any really nice and fun trip or vacation and definitely never anything with all 5 of us together. I would love for us all to be able to go to Disney World! The boys and our little girl would have the time of their lives, they have never been to any real theme park much less Disney World so it would blow their minds! Could be good for us as a couple as well since we never were able to have a honeymoon. This trip could be a good opportunity for us all to de-stress and connect as a family. We would need 4 of the 4-day park hopper tickets. Thank you for looking and considering helping us out even if just a little! It's very appreciated!

Family Vacation to Walt Disney World - AUG 2014

Aug 1st 2014

Hi my name is MSgt Jennifer Smith. I am married to my wonderful husband, Jerry and we have four beautiful children. My children are Skylah (12), Jerry (8), Bella (4) and Christian (18 mos). I am currently serving my 4th deployment and will miss 3 of my children's birthdays, as well as Thanksgiving, Christmas, my anniversary, Easter and possibly Mother's Day. I would love to treat my children to a wonderful vacation at Walt Disney World. I dream of them everyday and a gift of 6 park hopper tickets to Walt Disney World will put so many smiles on their faces, that it will almost fill the void in my heart from missing them so much. My husband and I have wanted to take our children for a while now and can never make it a reality. My husband is also military, so we have done our fair share of separations. It has been very difficult on our children and I thank God every day that I have them in my life. I would really love to spoil them for a couple of days at the greatest place on earth.

My name is SFC Antonio Corona. I am currently deployed in Afghanistan, and am burned out with deployments. This is my second tour here since I last left here in 2011 along with previous tours in Iraq. I try to put on a smile in every deployment. My pain goes out to my loving wife Sabrina, whom I left home alone with my four boys. My boys ages Antonio III(10) Jason(8) Jake(2) and Jayden(1). Yes I left my wife with 2 toddlers, my last deplyment in 2010-11 she was pregnant with Jake, only for me to return home and then we had Jayden. So I been pretty busy, I cannot recall the last time we had an actual full family event. I should return home sometime early in 2014. I would love (6) tickets to Disney World in Orlando for all of us, but if (4)is sufficient, I could pay the rest out of pocket. Thank you for the support and God bless.

It has been a very trying last few months due to my wife Brooke, having heart issues and constantly in the hospital. We have two kids a girl Stella (4) and boy Josh Jr. (1). I missed Christmas, Thanksgiving and will be missing both their birthdays this month. My pain goes out to my loving wife, whom I left home alone with the kids away from her family, and having a hard time trying to juggle the kids and her medical appointments. I should return home sometime in May 2014. I would love (4) park hopper tickets to Disney World in Orlando for all of us. We have been trying to plan this for a while but can only afford the hotel and never the tickets. Thank you for the support and God bless.

St. Louis Cardinals v. Tampa Bay Rays Baseball game.

Jun 11th 2014

My name is Joshua Hall and I am currently serving in the United States Air Force on my third deployment to Afghanistan within the past two years. I will be returning to my duty station in Northwest Florida in a couple weeks and my family will be coming down to welcome me home. My father is retired military having served 20 years in the AF and my brother is also currently serving. I have been playing baseball since I was three years old so my family has grown up around the "diamond", I also played 3 1/2 years of college baseball. Now I play competitive slow pitch, once I return from deployment anyway. I believe I use it as my escape from life stressors and also it helps me return from combat zone to being back home. Again, I would like to thank you for even having the chance to tell you a little about myself. We are originally from the State of Missouri and are all huge St. Louis Cardinals fans. I would love to be able to take them to a game against the Tampa Bay Rays while they are in town. We would require 5 tickets to accommodate everyone in my immediate family but I am beyond grateful for anything I may receive.
