Happy Veterans Day - The Three Wise Men Tribute

Who is the most dependable person in your life?

From Nathan Fletcher who set up this tribute:
“The Three Wise Men Tribute seeks to launch a national movement to bring communities together on Veterans Day to honor those who survived their combat experience but have come home and are struggling. We will raise awareness of the problems our veterans face and provide direct support to successful programs that give them the help they need. These warriors fought for our country, now it is our turn to fight for them.

IN THEIR HONOR
Returning veterans struggle with high suicide rates, high unemployment rates, a lack of resources to succeed, and a dwindling support community to look to for assistance. The struggles our veterans face are widely unknown by the general public and are difficult to identify.

As a combat veteran of the Marine Corps, I have lost too many friends. Those who gave the “last full measure of devotion” — a part of sacrifice and service that dates to the founding of our country. But no family should ever lose a veteran once they return from war.

Growing up, my closest friends were my cousins: Jeremy, Ben, and Beau Wise. We called them “The Three Wise Men.” Jeremy and Ben were both killed in action in Afghanistan. Beau remains on active duty in the U.S. Marine Corps.
The “Three Wise Men” tribute exists to raise awareness and funds to help our returning veterans access the help and services they need.
