The “Three Wise Men” were three brothers: Jeremy Wise, Ben Wise, and Beau Wise.  They were warriors — Jeremy a SEAL, Ben an Army Green Beret, and Beau, USMC Infantry. Tragically both Jeremy and Ben were killed in action. Beau remains on active duty.

“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.”
