I had no idea that this site/service existed for veterans until I read the following post offered by veteran and ActiveRain Member, Jerry Newman ... and I'm imagining that there are many like me, including veterans that could be benefiting from it.   

 

I'm re-posting this info with the hopes that more eyes land on it ... learn of the veteran services offered via Vet Tix ... and also share the info with others. 

 

We really can't do too much to say "thank you" to our active service members and veterans, but this, along with your sharing of the info, sure is a good start. Help out and pass the info on ...

 

Thanks!

Military life can be hard work. So when the work day is done at the end of the day,  it’s a nice break for the members in our military community – whether currently serving or veterans -- to head out on the town with family or friends to see a concert or catch a ball game. Events like this are a great way to spend much-needed quality time with family or re-integrate after a deployment.

Unfortunately, tickets to these events aren’t cheap.

That’s where Vet Tix comes in. Veteran Tickets Foundation, or Vet Tix, is a national nonprofit that supports the veteran and military community with free community-based event tickets ranging from concerts to professional sports games. It all started in 2008 when founder and CEO Mike Focareto noticed several empty seats around him at Super Bowl XLII in Arizona and thought about how the men and women serving our country could enjoy being there. Since then, Vet Tix has distributed over 2.5 million tickets to the military community.

So how does it work? In a couple of different ways.

Vet Tix works with major sports teams, entertainers, promoters, organizations, donors and venues to distribute tickets. Vet Tix also accepts donated tickets. If you’re interested in donating tickets, simply head over to their website and click on the “Donate Now” button.

If you’re looking to get some tickets, go to the Vet Tix website, register, and then browse all the available tickets in your area. They use a lottery system to ensure that everyone has a fair chance to receive event tickets.

Vet Tix also has a program called “Hero’s Wish” that grants special wishes to qualifying personnel. Through this program, members who meet certain criteria can request specific tickets for any single event, and then donors help to fulfill that wish either by ticket donation or by donating money.

Interested in learning more about Vet Tix? Visit Vet Tik Website and search through all the events they have to offer. Interested in more discounts? Visit Military Discount Center

If you are planning to buy or to sell in and around the San Antonio, Texas area, contact a retired military veteran, who understands our military community, and how stressful the PCS(Permanant Change of Station) move came be with any family.

I read this and then checked with my  local branches of the military groups and we also have some programs but they are  just not advertised.

Thanks for spreading the word, Gene. I recently just found out this from another veteran, who told me how he got some real cheap tickets to a ball game.
