Building family memories by attending a sporting event or concert is an important step on the road to adjusting to life after a deployment, while home on leave, transitioning to full-time civilian life, or in just dealing with the everyday challenges of being a military family.
The Department of Veteran affairs recognizes how important it is for veterans to be part of their community by attending events and urges them to get out as often as possible. As many military families know, however, tickets are often too expensive to be anything more than a special occasion once or twice a year. That’s especially true of families living on enlisted salaries.
About Vet Tix
Veterans Tickets Foundation (Vet Tix) was founded in 2008 in Phoenix but quickly grew into a national program to provide currently serving military, veterans and their families, as well as the immediate families of those killed in action, with tickets to sports events, concerts, arts and entertainment programs. It teams up with sports leagues, promoters, venues, organizations and individuals to provide free and discounted tickets to active duty and retired military from all branches of the military in all 50 states. Vet Tixers request tickets to events in the USA that interest them, then pay a small delivery fee to receive their free tickets. It has provided more than 2 million tickets to the brave men and women who have served, and the families who support them.
