This organization has given me the opportunity to do things otherwise wouldn't be able to afford. Every veteran should be a member.

I love this organization. It affords my family and I opportunities that we would normally not be able to take advantage of.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make the service charge free.

I have never been able to benefit from this organization. I have a family of 6 and you are not able to get more than 4 tickets. On events that I would take just my wife to I have not been selected. They seem like a good orginazition, but most of the events are far away.

*Edit*
I guess they can say anything they want below. Every time I've asked for more tickets it has been denied and I've been told that they do not give away more than 4 tickets to any one person.

99% of our events are of type "soft" event request. Meaning there is a comments box where you can leave a comment to request more tickets for larger families sizes (this is most always granted... ask any Vet Tixer). We also just recently implemented where based on folks making the request of more tickets we can change the number they can request without having to comment. Obviously, we have events have a hard limit based on number of tickets donated and seating locations. If we have 6 total tickets and 4 in one section and 2 in another the request will be hard limit. (this is like 1% of our events). As for distance of events... as we continue to grow we hope to get more events all over the US. NOTE: if someone were to ask for 20 tickets to say take a youth baseball team to an event... that request would be denied as it does not maximize veteran benefit.

VTF offers fully everything it advertises. Adequate notice of events ( some of which one might not know of w/o the email from VTF), good descriptions of the events, easy procedures to obtain the tickets and, of course, tremendous discounts. My family went to a hockey game that we could not have afforded otherwise. They provide a great service to the Vet community.

Thanks to VetTix, all veterans are afforded the opportunity to participate in various events all around the country. They have provided an awesome service to our nations military past and present and give back to those that gave for this nation. Keep up the great work for our nations military. We all truly appreciate all that you have done for us and opening up all the great opportunities to see and participate and various types of events we might never have gone to without donations from all the great organizations around the country.

Prior to Vet Tickets, I had never attended a professional sports activity. They offer free, efficient and easy access to their tickets for vets. Thank you Vet Tickets! Thank you for everyone who supports our veterans!

VetTix is awesome! Providing tickets to veterans at a nominal fee, allows me the opportunity to experience an array of events I may not otherwise. Awesome non-profit!!!!!

I'm very grateful for the event tickets provided thru VetTix.

What's not to love about this great non-profit organization that continually secures tickets to events and puts them in the hands of Veterans?!

I've received tickets to numerous events and each time it was more than a positive experience.
