KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S. (VFW) and Veteran Tickets Foundation (Vet Tix) are pleased to announce they’ve entered into an official alliance designed to benefit all veterans and service members, as well as their families and caretakers. By teaming up, both organizations increase awareness of the opportunities offered by both the VFW and Vet Tix. The organizations share the common goal of helping veterans during their time of service and as they transition back into civilian life by providing them with resources and support services.
“It is such an honor to partner with the VFW, which has such a rich history of supporting veterans since 1899,” said Mike Focareto, CEO of Vet Tix. “This collaboration will provide opportunities for all veterans to become VetTixers while experiencing the benefits of both Vet Tix and the VFW. We have found that our tickets not only provide smiles and memories to our VetTixers but have also helped their reintegration into the community. I look forward to us expanding our impact and creating more memories for more veterans, their families and those who care for them.”
“We’re pleased to provide VetTixers with the many opportunities this new relationship brings including access to our vast programs and services designed specifically to serve their needs,” said VFW National Commander Keith Harman. “We’re all in any time we can help boost the morale of our nation’s finest, or any time we can simply help them in life, period.”
Vet Tix events provide service members and veterans a unique opportunity to spend quality time with one another and family to strengthen social connections. Vet Tix seats are often grouped in blocks enabling VetTixers to be seated with other VetTixers at events, helping to promote comradery similar to that experienced while in service. The VFW’s contributions will grant those unique reintegration opportunities and help military families to make memories that last a lifetime.
