Bad luck seemed to dog Beau from the very beginning. He was an accident, and his parents never pretended to want him. With very little support from them, Beau and his brothers were forced to take care of themselves. His childhood left him with a fervent need to belong and he found this need when he joined the military, but two tours of duty to Iraq left him traumatized and unable unable to process what he had seen. In the following years, Beau's PTSD and several other self-destruction issues began to take its toll on his career and even his home life.
