I have been signed up for this org for the past 5 years and it has been one of best things I have ever signed up for. I get to go and take my family to more events than anyone I know. We have been to football, baseball, hockey, basketball, rodeo, circus, concerts, plays, wrestling, MMA, boxing, the list just goes on and on. I can not say enough about VetTix and the awesome job they do. If you have a dd-214 there is no reason you should not sign up. And if you are thinking about donating to them, well me and my vet friends thank you already just for your consideration.

As a disabled veteran on a fixed income it's a great opportunity to be able to attend an event that I can actually afford! I've seen several great concerts like Chris Jansen, Old Dominion and Zac Brown thanks to VetTix.org. The donated tickets by the venue or artist are always appreciated and I am looking forward to attending more events this year. The only negative is the tickets are not always easily accessible if you have physical difficulties

I had won tickets to see the Black Keys. It was very easy getting my tickets. They were great seats, being in the 8th row from the stage. The only problem I had then was I was trying to upload my picture to their website. I'm sure that has been taken care of by now. But as a veteran, I'm truly grateful for Vet Tix for giving veterans a chance to have a good time with their families.

This organization is really great. It provides tickets to all sorts of events for free to Veterans. The events provide Veterans a chance to spend quality time with Family and Friends. It also lets Veterans experience events that they might otherwise not have attended such as a ballet or rodeo. It allows Veterans to expand their social interactions and broaden their world view with new experiences. I can't say enough good things about VetTix.

I have attended 2 VET TIX events & both were wonderful! The ticket request & admission process was seamless and pretty easy to follow. The seating in both cases was exceptional. I want to thank VET TIX, the donors & sponsors who provide us with wonderful opportunities to experience the Arts, Cultural, Historic, Sporting and community events that are sometimes out of our budget; or at times are events we have not even considered attending and participating in. The guidelines are pretty straight forward, fair, make sense and are easy to follow. I appreciate the VET TIX volunteers and what they contribute to veteran, their families and community. This is a class act non profit! Kudos!

Vet Tix has provided my family and me countless opportunities to go out and enjoy each other’s company and share in all sorts of fun activities from concerts and festivals to sporting events and shows. When you wanna take someone to a nice event and you need tickets look first to Veteran Tickets Foundation. For all those veterans out there looking to represent your service and have fun with your family and friends while enjoying live entertainment. This is a great way to make new friends and meet new people as well. Thanks Vet Tix!

I can't say enough about this organization and what they do for active duty and veteran military personnel. I, along with my family, and my fellow veteran friends, have been able to attend so many different events (concerts, sports, arts) that without the help of VetTix, we never would have been able to go. The volunteers at VetTix and all the very generous donors help us feel a sense of community we wouldn't receive otherwise.

VetTix provides more help to Veterans than what may get noticed. Its not just an avenue to get free/discounted tickets for events, its a path for Veterans, many which who suffer with PTSD, as well as other challenges, to engauge in socializing, and getting the opportunity to meet with other Veterans who may be dealing with the same challenges as well as being involved with the community. VetTix is very professionaly operated and highly respected in the Veteran community.

Vet Tix is a great organization! I only learned about them about a year ago and have already been able to attend several concerts, a few sports events and a couple ballets (for my wife and grand daughters) that i would not have been able to attend without the efforts of Vet Tix and its donors. I have not had any problems getting tickets from the venues and it has been really great to feel so appreciated for having served in the military.

We have gone to dozens of concerts and sporting events as a family because of the generosity of their sponsors and Vettixs ability to mach events with Veterans. The events have allowed to me socialize with other veterans and see events that I wouldn’t normally be able to afford. A great organization that has made a wonderful impact on my life.

All Vet tiks ever asks is for a photo of yourself at the event and a simple thank you note uploaded to the vet tiks website. Thank you Vet Tiks for all you do and for remaining during this pandemic.

This organization has been a huge blessing on my life. It has allowed me to attend great events that I otherwise would have not been able to attend. Attending the events has also allowed me to meet other veterans, which has also enriched my life by having others i my area who I can talk with, whether it be idle chit-chat, or talking through difficult things I am dealing with that they also have the same experiences with.
