Vet Tix is a wonderful organization that provides and invaluable service to Veterans! Through their efforts, Veterans and their families are able to enjoy events that they might otherwise not have been able to enjoy. It allows them to create new memories to make up for the ones that might have been missed due to combat or training deployments, military schools, etc. Our family sincerely appreciates all the donors who make this program possible and to Vet Tix for bringing it all together for our Veterans.

I am so glad a friend referred me to Vet Tix. My son started college this semester and plays bass guitar for the front ensemble in the marching band. Thanks to Vet Tix and their partners, I have been able to get great seats and wonderful pricing to go to the football games and see him perform. I was also able to give back and donate some concert tickets. There are so many discounts and offers that really enhance active duty, retired and veterans. Thanks so much Vet Tix for making a difference and letting us also participate in helping our fellow military personnel.

Vettix.org has been amazing. I have done alot of first because of vettix.org. I have done things I would have never done in the past. I truly enjoy vettix.org and I am truly happy that I found out about vettix.org thru one of my co-workers at the time. It had been amazing. It has helped me come out of my shell sort of speak. I was very limited in what I would do and where I would go. Vettix.org helped me get out of the house. Thank you very much vettix.org.

An awesome organization that I am more than glad to be affiliated with. The opportunity to attend events that I would not normally see is great. I am glad that Vet Tix is there to support Veterans and especially my family. Some of the events are priced pretty high and that is a determining factor if we attend or do not attend. With Vet Tix I have a better chance of taking my family to a show of interest. The lottery format is a great way to get in on a limited number of tickets. I realize that some events have a higher interest than others, given that higher call for tickets you still have a great chance at catching a local event at a great price. I wish I would have known about Vet Tix earlier than I did. I am glad to spread the word to other prior military members. Keep up the great and positive work.

Would be awesome if a 21 year combat vet could actually use this. We have several here that laugh because you can’t get the IDme site to actually work and allow us to get into the program. We would all like to say “Thanks for nothing”!

We appreciate your taking the time to review... Sorry for your issues with id.me. Hopefully, you can work it out with them to get your verification working. Seems odd as they are VA approved and used by them and you are a 21 year combat Vet. We have heard issues with this before and it usually has something to do with your credit reports being locked by you and it also being associated with your DOD record. We use id.me because we decided its best for our mission and member integrity because of all the attempts of stolen valor.
