Lifetime VFW, VET TIX is wonderful way of paying it forward for all vets, everywhere. It enables so many families to reconnect at great venues enjoying time together viewing everything from Arts, Performances, Sports, Music, Museums, Special events, etc.

I learned about VetTix working as a veteran's representative. Before I could recommend the organization I wanted to ensure it was legit. I signed up and was able to get tickets to take my daughters to two local performances. As a disabled veteran, it seems like I'm always struggling to keep up and I don't attend venues as much as I should. VetTix allows veterans and their families to attend many amazing events and their work is a great service to those who have given so much in service of our nation. Thank you VetTix!

They're so many different organizations but Vet Tix is one of a kind. It's gives the veterans the opportunity to forget and create new memories with their family. Happy, meaningful memories like no other non-profit. Let's help Vet Tix continue to grow with their mission!

As a person that has served my country and that has a long family history of family members doing the same, I want to thank Vettix for what they do. I personally have experienced a good seat at a local college football game with a few of my fellow comrades from my VFW post. The seats were awesome and the price was great...free with a small processing fee and a donation I decided to give! In the end I got 4 tickets at a great location on the field for around the price of half of a single ticket. Thank you Vettix for your goal to help those that have served and still continue to answer our nation's call to duty to protect what we do as a democratic republic!

Vet tix is a wonderful organization. It gives us great opportunities to enjoy events we might not otherwise even know about, let alone be able to attend.

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

Recommend they alter the system so users can inform the vet-tix system if they are uninterested in a particular event. That way the user would not have to be inundated 3-4 emails/day, showcasing the same events. If the user could click a button indicating 'not interested in this event' then the system could stop sending that user emails advertising that particular event. Also, I would enable the user to designate a distance radius, rather than have them get emails for every event in the state.
