This non-profit is so easy to use and constantly has ready-to-be-claimed tickets and repeat veteran visitors are welcome. It's not just about attending the events. As a single father it is about communication, growth, love, and bonding. Going to events gives us memories for years to come, new learning experiences, and bonds with strangers that you never this non-profit organization and those who are on the board. I thank you for your contribution, and every time you think fondly of a U.S. Soldier.

This is one organization I know gives back to the Veterans. My husband and I have received tickets from them and have been able to go to many, many events. I want to thank the people who take time out of their busy life to give back by running this program. I recently donated money that was collected from my son's co-workers at GE in memory of him (Sean Patrick Armstrong). I know in my heart he would have wanted me to share with not only his fellow Marines 8 yrs served but also all branches of the service. I hope who ever gets the donation will say a little prayer for Sean with a thank you.

Vet Tix is an amazing organization that provides an opportunity for active duty and veterans to attend concerts as well as other entertainment free of charge. The experience for some veterans is nothing short of a miracle if there life is affected by PTSD or TBI. We were gifted tickets for the Tim Mcgraw and Faith Hill concert in Denver. My veteran had not attended any sort of social event in over two year.Attending this amazing concert was a huge success and a victory for someone who cant leave the house! Thank you Vet TIx you helped save a soldier and bring him just another step closer to whole again! Much respect

Hello,

I am a retired Marine with a service connected disability. My disability rating is 100%. I tried to join Vet Tix but was refused because my DD214 was illegible. My military records date back to the late 1980's. The copy I requested was stored on microfische. It is very blurry. I asked if there is an alternative way to prove service and was told "no."

I am not a fan. Kandace

An amazing site for veterans. Made it possible for me to check something off my bucket list - seeing Stevie Nicks in concert. A memorable night I won't forget. Even allows me to help other vets who are in need.

This non-profit is a great tool although it varies from time to time on what is available. The website is really easy to use and it is fairly easy to get the tickets your hoping for and find some interest you never really knew you had. If you are or have been military, I'd suggest to utilize and pay it forward when you are able to. Also make sure to thank all those who donate to Vet Tix, for without them it wouldn't be possible.

This non-profit is squared away. They have excellent activities for bringing the family together and recreational therapy.

Vettix.org is awesome! I have 3 vets in my family and in 2016 we received tickets for 3 concerts (Steven Tyler, Journey, Luke Bryan) PBR and Sportsmans Expo... all free! All concerts were awesome seats. It's a wonderful thank you to my veterans!

Vet Tix has given me the opportunity to enjoy some special times with my wife that I otherwise would not have had the opportunities to do. The time we have spent together at events has been special and brought us closer together as husband and wife. Thank You Veterans Ticket Foundation for everything you do on behalf of the Veterans!

As a Veteran with a fixed income, it is not often that my family goes to sporting events or concerts. Vet Tix has given my family and I opportunities to see NBA games, MLB games and concerts. I entirely appreciate the generosity of the donors and Vet Tix for the chance to do things I would not normally be able to do!
