In honor of Veterans Day, tomorrow’s workout will be Three Wise Men. This is an excellent non-profit with a great story. Check it out:
The Three Wise Men Veterans Foundation was founded in 2014 by Marine Corps combat veteran Nathan Fletcher in honor of his three cousins: Jeremy Wise, Ben Wise and Beau Wise. After the September 11, 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 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, and we have to ensure they not only survive but thrive in the peace that follows war. We’re excited to announce that Three Wise Men Veterans Foundation will join Headstrong, a national organization that provides post-9/11 veterans with cost-free, stigma-free and bureaucracy-free mental health care.
