His cancer returned two years later, when he received aggressive treatment at Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre in Bethesda, Maryland.
He served as the 44th Attorney General of the US state of Delaware between 2007 and 2015. In 2003, Beau served in the Army National Guard as a major in the Judge Advocate General’s (JAG) Corps.

He has been linked with several scandals, and both his personal and professional lives. As reported by Indian Express, Hunter has worked as a businessman, lobbyist and as a member on many international boards.
For a long time, Republicans have accused Hunter of exploiting his father’s position as Vice President of the United States to forge partnerships with businesses in China and Ukraine.
In 2014, he was discharged from the Navy Reserve after he failed a drug test for cocaine. His divorce from his ex-wife Kathleen Buhle in 2017 also made headlines. The couple share three children.
