Named in honor of Fletcher’s cousins killed in Afghanistan, the organization will host inaugural events on the deck of the USS Midway and throughout country this fall

SAN DIEGO, CA – Former State Assemblyman and Marine Corps veteran Nathan Fletcher today announced the launch of the Three Wise Men Foundation. This group aims to raise awareness of the problems facing U.S. veterans returning from war and provide direct support to organizations and programs that help them transition from combat to civilian life.

“It’s a tragedy that between as many as 50 veterans kill themselves every day in America, often as a result of untreated psychological trauma inflicted by combat,” Fletcher said. “If we truly honor those who gave their last full measure of devotion, it’s our duty to ensure that those who survive combat can also survive the transition home.”

Fletcher announced that the first event of the Three Wise Men Foundation will be held on the deck of the USS Midway on October 18th followed by similar events nationwide on Veterans Day Weekend. Proceeds from the events will directly benefit returning veterans by providing access to the help and services they need to help address suicide among our nation’s heroes.

The Three Wise Men Foundation is named in honor of Fletcher’s cousins, brothers Jeremy, Ben and Beau Wise. Jeremy and Ben were both killed in action in Afghanistan; Ben remains on active duty in the U.S. Marine Corps.

Mission Edge San Diego is serving as the event’s key fiscal sponsor and partner.
