Joes in Action

Who is Joe Le

A friend, a brother and a son who we all miss dearly.


Joe Le, 20, was smart, whitty and passionate about living his life to its fullest. He was an aspiring graphics design artist who loved the outdoors and helping others who crossed his path.

I strive towards simplicity in my day to day life, allowing it to revolve around two elements: Helping those I can, and finding reasons to smile - no matter how small." - Joe Le

β€œIt's the action, not the fruit of the action, that's important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there will ll be any fruit. But that doesn't mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

The mission of G.I. Joe Search & Rescue is to provide assistance & resources to local authorities and families with missing loved ones. We are a self-activating team of search & rescue volunteers, and we respond when notified of an emergency rescue or recovery mission. We strive to prevent and assist in emergency rescue situations by: 1) preparing and training ourselves with survival and SAR techniques, and 2) educating the public on safety and survival techniques.
