G.I. Joe Search and Rescue - The Joe Le Foundation
Started by a grieving sister who had lost her younger brother under similar circumstances, the mission of G.I. Joe Search and Rescue is to provide assistance & resources to both local authorities and families with missing loved ones. We are a self-activating team of search and rescue (S.A.R.) volunteers and we respond when notified of an emergency rescue or recovery mission. We strive to prevent and assist in emergency rescue situations by preparing and training ourselves in survival and S.A.R. techniques, and by educating the public on safety and survival procedures. We are a nonprofit organization run by volunteers and our goal is to not only provide search and rescue personnel and expertise to rescue and recovery missions, but also to provide emotional support to those families needing help in finding a loved one lost in our region’s canyons, forests and natural areas.
