“True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.” -Arthur Ashe

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

Memorial Day is the day we honor those who gave their life in combat—veterans like Jeremy and Ben Wise who gave that “last full measure of devotion.” Veterans Day is the day we honor all who served and continue to serve. Those like Beau who come home and deal with the legacy of war on a daily basis.

The Three Wise Men Tribute seeks to launch a national movement to bring communities together on Veterans Day to honor those who survived their combat experience but have come home and are struggling. We will raise awareness of the problems our veterans face and provide direct support to successful programs that give them the help they need. These warriors fought for our country, now it is our turn to fight for them.
