Honoring Heros: Three Wise Men

Today is a special day at the gym as we honor all of our armed forces for Veteran’s Day.

The “Three Wise Men” were three brothers: Jeremy Wise, Ben Wise, and Beau Wise (READ: Washington Post: One family; two sacrifices).

They were warriors — Jeremy a SEAL, Ben an Army Green Beret, and Beau, USMC Infantry. Tragically both Jeremy and Ben were killed in action. Beau remains on active duty.

Today we recognize the sacrifice of Jeremy and Ben, but we’re focused on honoring Beau and those like him who returned from combat and are trying to live with the legacy of combat daily.

On Memorial Day, you can find a gym just about anywhere that is participating in “Memorial Day Murph” and supporting the Mike Murphy Foundation. That is appropriate given Memorial Day is the day we honor those who died in combat.

Veterans Day is different as it is the day we honor ALL who served, and those who survived combat, but may be struggling to survive the peace.

Suicide rates among returning soldiers are alarmingly high, and the foundation set up in honor of the Wise brothers aims to help raise awareness.

CFHV is very proud to have many veterans amongst our community, and we would love for you all to pay them the proper respect today and every day, and thank them for their service.
