At Twilight Wish, we feel it is our privilege and duty to help fulfill the wishes of our elderly American veterans. Since our founding in 2003, we have honored more than 570 veterans. In fact, one-third of all the wishes we grant, are for veterans. Sometimes a wish fulfills an immediate need. Sometimes it is a last wish or a lifelong dream. Large or small, all wishes provide a meaningful “thank you” to our veterans for their dedication and selfless service to our country.
Examples of wishes we have granted for veterans include Joe B. who took part in the D-Day invasion of France and wished to return to Normandy Beach during peacetime. And, Bill S., a World War II veteran who wished to stand on the deck of a Navy destroyer one more time like he did during the war. Or Nicholas M., a former Marine, who wished for a lift chair so he might remain independent for a while longer.
