Ben was an Army Green Beret who died in combat just over two years after Jeremy. Beau Wise remains on active duty in the Marine Corps. The Three Wise Men Tribute is a unique workout experience that honors Jeremy and Ben-those veterans who gave that last full measure of devotion, but raises money for transition programs that support the Beau Wises of the world—those veterans who survived combat and are now trying to survive the peace that follows.
