Last year's Three Wise Men Tribute classes. Who's joining this year's tribute?
This is our third year doing the Three Wise Men Veteran's Day Tribute. The Three Wise Men Veteran's Day Tribute benefits the Headstrong Project, a non-profit that tackles the stigmas of mental health injuries and helps all our veterans get headstrong.
After September 11th the three Wise brothers joined the military– Jeremy Wise as a Navy SEAL, Ben as a Green Beret and Beau in the Marine Corps Infantry. All elite, all selfless, all patriots.
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. 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 the generation of veterans who gave that last full measure of devotion to their country. We often honor them as a nation. But Beau Wise represents that generation of veterans who survived combat—those that gave the same level of devotion to their country—but those who are often forgotten.
For two years, the Three Wise Men Veterans Foundation stood with veterans who survived combat, focusing on raising awareness of the challenges our returning veterans often face.
Last year they organized over 10,000 Veterans Day events in all 50 states and a dozen countries around the world.
This year in partnership with Headstrong, we’re tackling the stigmas of mental health injuries and serving those who served us bigger and better.
