Jeremy Wise.  Ben Wise.  Beau Wise. Three brothers.  Three warriors. The Three Wise Men.

After the September 11th, 2001 attacks on our country, Jeremy joined the Navy and became a Navy SEAL. Ben, already in the Army became a member of the legendary Green Berets. Beau followed his brothers into the military and joined the Marine Corps Infantry. Together they served over 1,600 days deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Tragically, Jeremy was killed by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan on December 30, 2009. Two years and eleven days later, Ben was killed in a firefight in Afghanistan. Beau remains on active duty in the United States Marine Corps.

Jeremy and Ben represent that generation of veterans who gave that last full measure of devotion to their country. We honor them as a country. But Beau Wise represents that generation of veteran who survived combat and we now have to stand with to ensure they can not only survive but that they can thrive in the peace that follows.
