This program includes a preface and afterword read by Beau Wise.
From Beau Wise and Tom Sileo comes Three Wise Men, an incredible memoir of family, service and sacrifice by a Marine who lost both his brothers in combat--becoming the only "Sole Survivor" during the war in Afghanistan.
Shortly after the 9/11 attacks, three brothers by blood became brothers in arms when each volunteered to defend their country. No military family has sacrificed more during the ensuing war, which has become the longest ever fought by America?s armed forces.
While serving in Afghanistan, US Navy SEAL veteran and CIA contractor Jeremy Wise was killed in an al Qaeda suicide bombing that devastated the US intelligence community. Less than three years later, US Army Green Beret sniper Ben Wise was fatally wounded after volunteering for a dangerous assignment during a firefight with the Taliban. Ben was posthumously awarded the Silver Star, while Jeremy received the Intelligence Star?one of the rarest awards bestowed by the U.S. government?and also a star on the CIA?s Memorial Wall.
United States Marine Corps combat veteran Beau Wise is the only known American service member to be pulled from the battlefield after losing two brothers in Afghanistan. Told in Beau?s voice, Three Wise Men is an American family?s historic true story of service and sacrifice.

"Many American families have sacrificed much for our freedom, but few if any in modern times have given as much as the Wise family from my home state of Arkansas. Theirs is the story of true heroes?those who gave their lives as well as those who remain to carry on and honor the memory of Jeremy and Ben. It?s a story that needs to be told and more importantly, needs to be read and shared. It will remind you that America is a great country because of great, God-fearing people who pay a price for all of us."?Mike Huckabee, 44th Governor of Arkansas
