After the September 11th attacks on the US, Jeremy joined the Navy and became a SEAL. Ben, already in the Army, became a member of the legendary Green Berets. Beau followed his brothers and joined the Marine Corps Infantry. Together they served over 1,600 days in Iraq and Afghanistan. Tragically Jeremy was killed by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan on December 30, 2009. Just over two years later, Ben was killed in a firefight in Afghanistan on January 10, 2012. Beau remained on active duty in the United States Marine Corps.
