In 2010, Beau and Ben Wise buried their big brother Jeremy. Two years later, Beau buried his brother Ben. He went from the youngest son to the only son.
Their parents are the only known U.S. military family to lose two sons in Afghanistan during the 19+ year war.
In this interview, I’m privileged to have Beau Wise and his co-author of “Three Wise Men“, Tom Sileo.
After top U.S. officials realized that two Wise brothers had been lost, Beau, a Marine, was permanently pulled from the battlefield – becoming the only U.S. service member to be removed from combat as a result of such extraordinary events in Afghanistan.
Great Americans, sad and powerful story.
